HTC One Remix now available on Verizon

htc one remix verizons mini 2 verizon
Verizon has added a new HTC smartphone to its range, called the One Remix, making it sound funky, cool, and new. While it’s certainly not without interest, the One Remix is actually Verizon’s own version of the previously announced One Mini 2. The most striking difference between the two is all the Verizon branding slapped over the device. You won’t be forgetting to which carrier you’re connected in a hurry.

Ignore the Verizon logos, and the One Remix looks to be identical to the One Mini 2. It has a 4.5-inch touchscreen with a 720p resolution, and runs Android 4.4.2. The official image shows Blinkfeed running on the phone, which is part of HTC’s Sense user interface. Verizon says a selection of apps come pre-installed, but only mentions Twitter by name, along with an unnamed calendar and news app.

Flip the phone over and you won’t find the Duo Camera which is fitted to the full-size One M8, but a 13-megapixel lens instead. It’s accompanied by an LED flash. Above the screen is a 5-megapixel camera for taking a decent selfie. A MicroSD card slot will boost the 16GB of internal storage space by up to 128GB, if you have a card that size hanging around. Finally, the phone has HTC’s dual BoomSound speakers fitted to the front panel, and the phone is ready to connect to Verizon’s XLTE network.

The One Remix presumably shares the same metal chassis as the One Mini 2, which has a plastic surround to help lower the price compared to the all-metal One M8. Verizon will sell the One Remix for $100 with a new two-year contract, and it’ll be on sale in-store and online from July 24.
