While browsing through the FCC's database for any newly added smartphones, we came across a specimen listed as the HTC 0P8B100. An enigmatic name, we know, but it turns out that behind it could be a phone that we're pretty familiar with – the HTC One mini 2.
This particular handset appears to be the rumored One mini 2 variant for Verizon, also referred to as the HTC One Remix. Clues leading us to believe that include the phone's support for Verizon's LTE network on bands 4 and 13, as well as the support for CDMA BC0 and BC1, which the carrier uses. On top of all that, a quick search on the internet for anything related to the phone's SKU, HTC6515LVW, indicate that we're indeed dealing with a variation of the HTC One mini 2.
For those who need a refresher, the HTC One mini 2 is an Android smartphone designed as a physically smaller counterpart to the HTC One (M8) flagship. As such, it features a 4.5-inch, 720 by 1280 pixel display, a 13MP rear camera with no UltraPixel tech, a 5MP front-facing camera, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 SoC, a gig of RAM, and 16GB of expandable storage space. Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.0 on top runs on the phone out of the box.
Of course, let us not forget that Verizon has yet to confirm that it would be launching the HTC One mini 2 on its network. But the carrier has not denied it either. Whatever the future holds for us, we should know soon enough.
