HTC Says 'Mini' Phones Still a Possibility
HTC today clarified statements made regarding its plans for smaller — or "mini" — versions of its flagship phones. A report, quoting an HTC executive, suggested that HTC did not plan to bring any more smaller-stature phones, such as the One mini 2, to market. HTC President of North Asia Jack Tong did say the industry is moving toward phones with screens larger than 5 inches. Tong "did not say HTC is not planning any more mini versions of its phones," said HTC spokesperson Jeff Gordon in an email to Phone Scoop. "To be clear, I'm not confirming HTC is coming out with an HTC One M9 mini," tempered Gordon, "only that Jack Tong didn't say what some press are attributing to him." In 2013 HTC followed up its One M7 flagship with a smaller and lower-spec'd mini variant. The company did the same thing in 2014 with the M8, but has yet to reveal any such plans for the M9.

HTC One mini 2 Offers A Bit Less of A Good Thing
HTC today announced the One mini 2, a follow-up to last year's One mini that adopts the design language and appeal of this year's HTC One (M8). The One mini 2 carries over some of the M8's best features, though it makes several distinct downgrades in order to meet HTC's price point goals.
