HTC announced the One Mini 2 earlier today and we’re already hearing of possible American variants. A new device called the HTC One Remix made its way to the USPTO yesterday confirming that a new device was on the horizon. Evleaks now claims that this device is nothing but Verizon’s variant of the HTC One Mini 2.
But it’s still a bit strange that HTC would prefer calling it the One Remix rather than just sticking to One Mini 2 moniker. With the device now official in global markets, we should gradually see carriers in the U.S. launching the device too with Verizon possibly being the first.
The One Mini 2 sports a 4.5 inch 720p display, a 13-megapixel camera on the back, 1GB of RAM, a quad core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 chipset, 16GB of storage (expandable), Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.0 and a 2,110 mAh battery. The smartphone features the same design and construction as the HTC One M8, but lacks some of the key features such as Duo Camera and Motion Launch, which is a compromise HTC had to make to keep manufacturing costs at bay.
