News Brief

If you liked the HTC One M8, but passed on it because it was too big, then today’s your lucky day. As it did last year, HTC has introduced a more compact, scaled-down version of its flagship device, this time called the HTC One mini 2. It has a smaller 4.5-inch, 720p display and uses a less powerful quad-core processor from Qualcomm. HTC also swapped out the main Ultrapixel Duo camera for a 13-megapixel sensor. But don’t worry, your selfies should still look good with a front-facing five-megapixel camera. The One Mini 2 will be available in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East in June. No word yet on North American availability or pricing.
