It's been hardly three weeks since HTC One (M8) made its debut on 25 March. Now the smartphone's bigger sibling touted as HTC M8 Ace has made an appearance online.

Popular twitter spy, @evleaks has released a blurry, yet distinguishable snapshot of the HTC M8 Ace. In the picture, the device sports a maroon red hued big rectangular body and is less curvy than the original HTC One M8 model. It also flaunts a camera at the top right corner and mesh-style front speakers. 

 Apart from the photo, the tipster has not divulged any other details related to internal components of HTC M8 Ace.

Besides HTC M8 Ace, the Taiwanese company is also speculated to be working on a compact variant of HTC One M8. Specifications of this mini model have already been leaked out in the media. (courtesy, @evleaks)

HTC One M8 Mini is said to sport a 4.5-inch HD (720p) display and ship with Android v4.4.2 KitKat OS with HTC custom Sense v6.0 UI, 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB (expandable via microSD card), 13.0-megapixel primary camera, 5.0-megapixel snapper on the front and boasts standard wire-less connectivity features - Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/n/ac) and Bluetooth v4.0.

As of now, there is no word on when these HTC One M8 variants will be launched, but it is safe to assume that company is certain to launch them in coming months, as it had exercised similar strategy with HTC One M7 in 2013.
