Hardware maker Xi3 will be showing off their new "next unit of computing" (NUC) models based on the Intel's fifth-generation Core "Broadwell" processors at their CES booth this week. NUC machines are tiny form-factor computers, similar to a stripped-down Mac mini, that eschew legacy connectivity in favor of cooler, quieter power efficiency compared to tower-style machines. The Xi3 offerings include four different models, for enterprise and consumer customers, including the Xi2 NUC Elli 5 and 5 Pro, and the Xi3 NUC Leon 5 and 5 Pro.
[Updated with confirmation] Samsung could launch the mini version of the Galaxy S5 next month, potentially at the same time as entry-level devices launched earlier today, according to a report. The rumored Galaxy S5 mini will allegedly go on sale in markets worldwide in mid-July, with the launch apparently falling in line with the initial shipments of the Galaxy S4 mini
The smaller version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 has reportedly leaked, seemingly showing it to have a similar set of features to the full-size version.

Following the launch of the HTC One M8, HTC has launched another miniature version of its flagship smartphone. The HTC One mini 2 shares the design of the full-scale counterpart, just as rumored earlier, but as its name suggests, it exchanges the 5-inch 1080p display for a smaller 4.5-inch 720x1280-resolution version, and just like the first HTC One mini, the internal specifications have also seen some changes.
Specifications for what could be the "mini" version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 have reportedly leaked, suggesting it to be a considerable improvement over the previous model.

Samsung could be preparing to launch a smaller version of the Galaxy S5, if rumors about a file on Samsung's own servers are true.

LG has revealed a smaller version of its G2 smartphone, as part of its pre-Mobile World Congress announcements. The LG G2 mini takes after its larger stablemate in styling and functionality, including the rear buttons, though like other "mini" models of devices, the specifications are pruned to more budget-friendly options, such as replacing the 5.2-inch display of the original for a 4.7-inch 540x960 version.
LG's flagship smartphone could have a smaller stablemate in the future, according to a leaked set of specifications.

HTC will no longer be allowed to sell the One Mini in the United Kingdom from the end of this week onwards.
