HTC today announced the One (E8), a variant of the One (M8) that carries over nearly every feature other than the aluminum design and camera. The E8 replaces the aluminum exterior with a unibody polycarbonate shell that is far less costly for HTC to manufacture. The E8 also replaces the M8's dual-camera design for a simpler setup. The E8 uses a 13-megapixel sensor with pixels that are normal sized with back-side illumination and an aperture of f/2.2 - same as the One mini 2. The E8 has a 5-megapixel user-facing camera for selfies. The rest of the E8's hardware specs mirror those of the M8. It includes a 5-inch full HD LCD3 screen, stereo BoomSound speakers, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage, and support for microSD cards up to 128GB. It packs a bevy of sensors, and includes NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS/GLONASS, dual-band Wi-Fi, and worldwide LTE bands. The HTC One E8 runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.0 and the newest version of BlinkFeed. It offers the Motion Gestures found on the M8, and is compatible with the Dot View case. The E8 will launch in select markets in June. Pricing in the U.S. is expected to be about $450 at full retail.

HTC One Mini 2 Freddy's coming for you

What a stupid name. Why does HTC insist on continuing on with this naming convention? First there was the HTC One X, then the HTC One VX, then they dropped down to the HTC One which implies that it is older than all but it is not, and now they have the One Mini 2? I wouldn't be surprised if these Einsteins at HTC start using Wingding fonts in the name or that symbol Prince used for his name.
Sorta like iPhone, iPhone 3, iPhone 3G, iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s. What's next? iPhone 6. iPhone 6c, and most likely the iPhone 6s.

So you get a plastic chassis and a better camera for less money, nice deal! Put this camera into the aluminum bodied One and it would be a winner! Cool
