Verizon introduces HTC One Remix (Mini 2)
The HTC One mini 2 has been official for a couple months by now, and it’s seemed like an open secret for nearly as long that the phone would eventually find a home at Verizon as the HTC One Remix. The question’s felt less like one of “if” and more of “when,” and earlier this week we heard that the phone could be just days away, going up for sale this Thursday, July 24. This morning Verizon has gone ahead and confirmed just that, announcing plans for the start of One Remix sales.
Beginning tomorrow, the One Remix will be available for purchase both online and at Verizon retail stores. The Android will set you back just about $100 on a two-year contract – no word yet on the phone’s full price. Though considering that the full-fledged One M8 is also just $100 on-contract at Verizon, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the carrier quick to discount the One Remix even lower.
The One Remix features a 4.5-inch 720p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 SoC, has 1GB of RAM, and offers 16GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD. While there’s no Duo Camera like on the M8, the One Remix delivers a higher-res 13MP sensor, along with a wide-angle 5MP front-facer. And despite the phone’s compact size, those dual front-facing stereo BoomSound speakers return.
