HTC One (M8) to Get the Mini and Max Treatment?

Yesterday was a big day for HTC, and while we had all seen the leaks and rumors running up to the event, it was nice to see the device finally, officially get revealed and if we do say so ourselves, the HTC One (M8) is a pretty impressive device. With all of the features a lot of you came to love about last year’s model present and even better, the One (M8) took hardware design to a new level. On stage, Jason Mackenzie spoke about last year’s One, One Mini and One Max as being the One Family. So, it would stand to reason that this year, we’re going to see a smaller, and a larger M8, right? Well, that’s just what @evleaks is saying.

The enterprising leakster is once again being a thorn in HTC’s side and has stated in a tweet that a mini version of the HTC One (M8) is definitely on its way to market, and that another device named M8 Ace is under question. The Ace could end up being the One (M8) Max which would hardly be surprising, but those looking for a larger device would welcome it. While the One Mini was only available on AT&T here in the states, the One Max was more widely available and it’d make a lot of sense if the (M8) Mini were to be available on more than one carrier as well, especially when you consider the precedent HTC set for a device launch yesterday afternoon.

This year however, HTC might want to adjust the “mini” side of things for an M8 mini. Last year’s One Mini featured a great 4.3-inch display, but thanks to those BoomSound speakers, it was hardly all that “mini” at all. The One Max was a good device that was launched at a bad time as well, so we’re hoping that HTC have thought things through a little better this time around. What did you guys think to the One Mini and One Max last year? Let us know if you think that HTC should do the same again this year.
