We already know what the HTC One Mini 2 looks like—and the design is great. It mostly continues on with the One M8’s legacy, though it’s a more stripped down version. In a nutshell: the HTC One Mini 2 is one of the best mid-range phones you can get. And, soon, you’ll be able to pick it up for Verizon, only it’s being re-dubbed the HTC One Remix, because it’s sounds so much cooler than the name HTC came up with.
Unfortunately, as is customary with Verizon devices, the carrier’s logo is brazenly stamped all over the handset, both front and back. It’s as if Verizon tries its best to interfere with good design—and it’s frustrating that OEMs allow this to happen, but it’s obviously for business reasons. Instead of HTC’s logo in front just below the display, Verizon’s logo is in its place; the carrier’s same logo is also on the back, just in case you weren’t sure which carrier you were on.
It doesn’t appear much will be different with Verizon’s iteration aside from the name. At least the carrier got that right. If the specs remains the same, the One Mini 2 will sport a 4.5-inch 720p display, 13-megapixel camera, 16GB of internal storage (microSD expandable), 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, Sense 6 and Android 4.4.
As soon as word about the device’s availability and price hits, we’ll be sure to let you know.
