Is This the First Official Shot of the HTC One Mini 2?

By Tom Pritchard on at

We have heard rumours that HTC is planning to release a smaller version of its One M8 Smartphone, but renowned leaker @evleaks has revealed what appears to be the first official photo of the new phone.

Surprisingly the tweeter has stopped using the name "M8 Mini" in favour of "One Mini 2". Why would HTC stop the M8 naming convention already? Unless the company is insinuating it's not a radical update from the original One Mini?

@evleaks' tweet says that the One Mini 2 will be released sometime this year. If the reveal of the popular One M8 is anything to go by, we should expect to see a lot more leaks. [@evleaks via TechRadar]
