The unannounced HTC One M8 Mini reportedly lacks key features including the Duo Camera, Motion Launch, and Pan 360-degree photos.

The mini will be a smaller version of the popular HTC One M8.

The lack of features was reported by evleaks, a Twitter account that often leaks information about upcoming tech gadgets before it’s made public. 

The Duo Camera is popular because it enables on-the-fly photo editing. The other features also helped contribute to the popularity of the device.

Other features that could be lost include Zoe and Fitbit, the leaker said.

The M8 came out with a larger screen, better software, and more camera features, leading to widespread rave reviews.

It was an upgrade of a phone that was named the best smartphone of 2013 at the premier trade show in Barcelona earlier this year.

The screen size for the mini, as well as other specs, aren’t known yet.

It’s unclear when HTV will officially announce the mini.
