The latest rumour from serial leaker @evleaks is that the Mini version of the upcoming HTC One followup – codenamed the M8 – will feature hardware that could be seen as a very minor spec bump from the current model.
The upgraded Mini will see only minor updates from the current HTC One Mini which already features a Quad-Core 1.4GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage. With upgrades mainly going to the front and rear camera and an addition of microSD card slot for expandable storage and AC WiFi.
HTC M8 mini (mem_ul): SD400 (1.4GHz x4), 4.5", 720p, 1GB/16GB (+microSD), 13MP/5MP, a/b/g/n/ac, BT4.0, KK4.4.2, Sense6.0, buttons on screen.

Software wise, the new Mini will come with Android 4.4.2/Sense 6.0 and whatever features that HTC decides to bake in. The big news as seen in previous leaks is that HTC appears to be going for on-screen soft buttons in their new line of phones.
There’s not a huge amount here but if HTC is going to refine their already critically acclaimed hardware design and add and refine software and features it could be a winning way to go. Also, isn’t it about time we saw another advertisement from their $12 Million Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr?
Looking forward to an updated HTC One Mini update?
