HTC One Remix (One mini 2) launches at Verizon on July 24, costs as much as the One M8
Verizon today finally announced the HTC One Remix, a smartphone that first showed up back in May.

The One Remix is nothing more than a renamed HTC One mini 2, so it’s targeted at users who may want some of the features of the One M8 flagship, but in a more compact package.

Sporting a 4.5-inch display with 720 x 1,280 pixels, the HTC One Remix is indeed smaller than the 5-inch One M8. However, it’s significantly larger than other mini smartphones, and that’s because it has HTC’s typical BoomSound dual speakers on the front. Other features include a 13MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera for high-res selfies, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage space, and a 2,100 mAh battery. Android KitKat and Sense 6.0 UI are on board.

Verizon will sell the One Remix starting tomorrow, July 24 (just as expected). The smartphone will cost $99.99 on contract. Ironically, that’s also the current price of the HTC One M8.

Since the One Remix is identical to the HTC One mini 2, reading our One mini 2 review should help you find out more about Verizon’s new handset.

Only a dummy would get this over the M8 at the same cost.

There are still people who don't want size, they are fine with a smaller phone. STILL this phone should be priced LESS than the M8!

It is. The HTC One m8 is on sale for Verizon $100 off. Article neglected to say that.

I agree. I've had people ask for a good smaller Android phone --- Hard to find these days. I think the Remix will do pretty good -- though Verizon's Droid Lineup will probably bury it until the new Droids come out since Verizon focuses on those over all other brands.

They are just going to get the early adopters with that price, then bump the price down to 49.99 or free on contract like they do with most phones that start off at 99.99 on contract

Pro: rear camera isn't ultrapixel.
Con: high price tag.

You guys.

Let me finish this article.

Verizon will sell the One Remix starting tomorrow, July 24 (just as expected). The smartphone will cost $99.99 on contract. Ironically, that’s also the current price of the HTC One M8 - Because Verizon has a sale on all 2yr Contracts on phones $199 or higher get an instant $100 rebate.

Your welcome. There first page on Verizon Wireless website says that.

Sure. It would be dumb to buy the Remix over the M8 - but in a week ... sales over.

Or or or....get a Z1 Compact for less if you want a high end phone in a small package.

They go $350-400 unlocked NEW on eBay (grabbed one about a week ago with a 32 GB SD Card for $380).
