HTC One (M8) Mini and Galaxy S5 Mini leak

Info has leaked on two miniature mobiles coming our way from Samsung and HTC.

French tech site has what it claims are pictures of the HTC One M8 Mini in a case. It has the same aluminium build as its big brother but, according to @evleaks, it'll drop the M8 suffix by the time it comes to market.

Instead, it's rumoured to be titled the HTC One Mini 2. Which is much snappier, all things told.

It's also lacking the Duo Camera, so it won't have the One M8's ace Ufocus mode which lets you play around with depth of field and change the focal point of a photo after you've snapped.

On the plus side, however, it does have a dual-LED flash.

A previous rumour pegged the One Mini 2 with a 13-megapixel snapper, instead of the 4 Ultrapixel one on the One (M8).

In other mini mobile news, Samsung has apparently accidentally confirmed the S5 Mini is on the way.

The phone-maker's Finnish site made the boo-boo by adding a support page for a handset with the model number SM-G800, which Samsung obsessives have identified as the S5 Mini.

It's rumoured to boast a 4.5-inch 720p screen, Snapdragon 400 chip and an 8-megapixel camera. Like the full-sized Galaxy S5, it's thought to be water-resistant too.
