The latest HTC One family is the HTC One Mini 2. With truckloads of awesome features and configurations, this device is a compact variant of the famous HTC One M8.
Taking a cue from the very popular HTC One M8, the new flagship, HTC One Mini 2 is the latest offering from the house of HTC.
Inspired by the styling of the elder sibling, the HTC One Mini 2 is compact in size and elegant in design. In fact, the manufacturer claims that it is the perfect choice for those who wish to possess the iconic design of M8 in a more compact form. Although it cuts down on some of the configurations, such as, the ultra pixel camera and uni body design of its predecessor, but then with a price tag lower than the M8, it is not supposed to hold all state-of-the-art specifications.

With an expected launch of HTC One Mini 2 in June 2014, the handset plans to attack the mid-range segment of smartphones.
