Just like its big brother, the HTC One M8, the HTC One Mini 2 has broken cover, and like the One M8, it looks to be an improvement over an already good smartphone, and come in a similar color palette of brushed gunmetal, silver, and gold.
Apart from that there are a few other notable differences between the One Mini 2 and the One M8 (aside from this phone having a smaller display and likely less powerful internals). For one, the Mini 2 does not have the dual-sensor Duo Camera as comes on the One M8, nor does it have the dual LED flash.
Like the One M8, however, the metal body of the One Mini 2 is more substantial than the previous iteration, though in this case it doesn't quite reach all the way to the front like the One M8. It's more metal than the last version, but there's still a plastic rim around the screen and onto the top. HTC's also move around the positioning of the sensors and the power button, but this phone is still unmistakably a close relative of the HTC One M8. And that's not a bad thing at all.
We still don't have any information on a release date or pricing for the HTC One Mini 2, but you can rest assured that we'll update you as soon as we do. Until then — what do you think?
