According the @evleaks, the HTC M8 mini will come with a 4.5-inch 1280 x 720p screen, 0.2 inches larger than the HTC One mini, and as much smaller than the full-sized One. Design, as you would’ve expected, is reported to be very consistent with the existing flagship thanks to the acclaim, both critical and commercial, it has managed to garner.
HTC M8 mini (mem_ul): SD400 (1.4GHz x4), 4.5″, 720p, 1GB/16GB (+microSD), 13MP/5MP, a/b/g/n/ac, BT4.0, KK4.4.2, Sense6.0, buttons on screen.

@evleaks also suggests that the phone will come with HTC’s Sense 6.0 atop Android v4.4.2 KitKat, powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400 chipset along with a gig of RAM. The surprise comes in the form of a microSD slot that might feature on the M8 mini, to be used when the on-board 16GB exhausts.
Not only microSD expansion, HTC is said to do away with another expected feature, the UltraPixel camera. Taking place will be a 13 mega-pixel unit (BSI, sapphire lens; any guesses?) along with a front 5 mega-pixel shooter. Much like the full sized HTC M8, the M8 mini too is expected to do away with off-screen capacitive buttons which should bring a smile on folks at Mountain View.
