The HTC M8 has been in the spotlight lately as the subject of rumor after rumor. This time, its little brother the HTC M8 mini gets its 15 minutes. The latest leak provides the specs for the smaller counterpart to the future HTC flagship. And with word that HTC will be focusing more on the mid-range market, I expected the M8 mini to rock. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem all that impressive to me.

According to @evleaks, the device will feature a 4.5-inch 720p display, a 1.4GHz quad core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (with a microSD slot), a rear facing 13MP camera, a front facing 5MP camera, WiFi a/b/g/n/AC, Bluetooth 4.0 and KitKat 4.4.2 with a Sense 6.0 overlay. Just like its bigger brother, it will have on-screen buttons.

Personally, I think these specs are far from impressive. A 4.5-inch display isn’t exactly “mini,” and knowing HTC, the device will be the size of a Galaxy S4 but thicker. Plus, the Snapdragon 400 and 720p display match the original HTC One mini specs. It isn’t much of an improvement over last year’s model, though the same can be argued about the HTC M8.

These specs are awfully close to what the Moto G offers, and it’s sold for $200. Unless HTC can price the device very low (which it won’t), this device will be underwhelming. However, this is just my opinion. Let us know yours in the comments! Is this HTC M8 mini a good mini flagship, or is it just another mid-tier phone bound to be overpriced?
