We all knew the HTC One Mini 2 was coming, but while HTC itself remains tight lipped on the matter, Taiwan's NCC (National Communications Commission) hasn't stayed quite so quiet.
According to Focus Taiwan, the NCC has approved the mini marvel for sale in Taiwan and confirmed its existence in the process. Sadly it didn't confirm a whole lot else about the device, other than the fact that it supports 4G connectivity on the 700 MHz, 900 MHz and 1800 MHz frequencies.
However the fact that it's passed through the NCC suggests that it may be going on sale in a matter of weeks, so we should have all the juicy details soon.
In the meantime you'll have to make do with rumours, which currently suggest the HTC One Mini 2 will have a 4.5 inch 720p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of built in storage, a 13 megapixel camera and a similarly premium design as the HTC One M8.
So it's hardly set to be a flagship device, but it should be a tempting proposition for anyone who found the HTC One M8 too big or too pricey.
