We first heard a couple of weeks back that the HTC One mini 2 would make its way to Verizon, albeit under a completely different moniker. Verizon HTC One Remix is believed to be the moniker that this smartphone will adopt on the country’s largest mobile network. We have yet to hear from Big Red when it intends to bring it to the market but that day might not be that far off. A promo video for the Verizon HTC One Remix appeared on the carrier’s official YouTube channel shortly before it was pulled.
Looks like someone over at Verizon jumped the gun, but this coupled with the leaked renders and FCC filing we have already seen, is proof enough that the HTC One mini 2 is indeed destined for Verizon, no matter what name they slap on it.
The HTC One mini 2 is a toned down version of the company’s 2014 flagship, the HTC One M8. Like its sibling the One mini 2 features a metal build and front facing speakers. It compromises on display which is a measly 4.5-inch 720p panel as well as the power package.
International variant of the One mini 2 runs on a Snapdragon 400 processor from Qualcomm aided by just 1GB of RAM. There’s 13 megapixel rear camera instead of the One M8’s Duo Camera. Verizon HTC One Remix is likely going to have similar specifications.
Now that’s left now is an official announcement from Verizon, I wager its not long until we hear from Big Red about the One Remix.
