HTC M8 said to come in 4.5-inch 'mini' version, slightly larger than current HTC One mini

While we've seen specifications and an alleged design for the upcoming HTC M8 flagship, details for the presumed HTC M8 mini version have been nonexistent - until now. 

The famed EvLeaks is out with specifications for the smaller HTC M8 brethren, claiming it will be a 4.5-inch handset with buttons on screen, rather than capacitive buttons like on the 4.3-inch HTC One mini currently available.

A press shot for the HTC M8 mini hasn't leaked, but if the HTC One and HTC One mini are anything to go off of, the HTC M8 and HTC M8 mini will pack a similar design. EvLeaks says the mini handset will feature a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, expandable microSD card memory, Bluetooth 4.0, KitKat Android 4.4.2, and Sense 6.0 software. 

EvLeaks didn't provide word when the HTC M8 mini may launch or pricing, but we'll certainly be looking for more details.

The full-sized HTC M8 is currently tipped for a late-March unveiling in New York City. The mini version could be announced there as well, or shortly after for customers who maybe won't prefer the HTC M8's 5-inch phablet size.
