Back in May HTC unveiled the HTC One Mini 2, giving it probably one the silliest names in HTC history. At the time, the handset was revealed to be targeted at Europe, the Middle East and Asia fore release sometime in June but with no specific news related to a North American launch.
Not too long after this, rumors surfaced claiming the device would arrive in the United States on Verizon’s network with a name-change to the HTC One Remix. Just days ago Evleaks unofficially confirmed that this was more than just a rumor and that the handset would arrive on June 24th. As it turns out, he was right on the money. Verizon has officially announced the device and is putting it on sale for $99.99 with a new contract, starting tomorrow.
Aside from Verizon’s typically oversized branding, the One Remix is the exact same handset as the One Mini 2. While we won’t get into the specifics, this means you get a Snapdragon 400-powered device with 1GB of RAM and a 4.5-inch 720p display.
