Rumors regarding the HTC One Remix have been making rounds since mid-May but starting today we won’t be hearing unconfirmed information anymore. Destined for Verizon Wireless, the phone was made official today and is now for sale in carrier’s stores. If you are interested in picking one up, it will set you back $99.99 with a new contract. Prefer monthly payments? No problem, the One Remix is also available with Verizon Edge payment plan.
HTC One Remix (HTC One Mini 2) for Verizon
Otherwise known as the HTC One Mini 2, the One Remix is a watered-down version of the flagship One M8, but we are happy to confirm that the phone keeps some of the best traits offered by its high-end brother. For starters, we get the uni-body metal design, which is far more pleasant to the eye and hand than cheap plastic. The handset also boasts a massive 5-megapixel user-facing camera as well as BoomSound speakers and it ships with Android 4.4 KitKat and Sense 6 on board.
Here’s where similarities end as the rest of the features of the One Remix scream mid-range. The screen measures 4.5 inches and has HD (720 by 1280 pixels) resolution. A quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor is ticking inside at a max speed of 1.2 GHz and there is 1 GB of RAM to take care of multitasking. The rear camera is not of UltraPixel variety but given that it has a 13-megapixel sensor with auto-focus and LED flash, it doesn’t seem like a bad choice for a smartphone of mid-tier class.
The One Remix comes with 16 GB of internal memory, out of which a generous chunk will be taken up by the system and all the pre-loaded apps. You won’t have to worry about running out of room for your content, though, as there is a microSD slot compatible with up to 128 GB cards. Other features include a 2,100 mAh battery, HTC BlinkFeed and support for Verizon’s XLTE bands.
You have to admit that solid construction, decent specs and affordable price make a pretty tempting combination. So, if you are looking for premium HTC experience in a more compact form than the One M8, the One Remix might be the answer.
