Verizon Wireless has officially started selling the HTC One Remix, which is essentially its version of the HTC One Mini 2, albeit with slight improvements.

The Verizon HTC One Remix aims to bring some of the key features of the flagship HTC One M8 in a smaller package. This handset is virtually the same as the HTC One Mini 2 that will make its way to Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, but it does sport some changes other than the Verizon branding.

Just like the HTC One Mini 2, the Verizon HTC One Remix features a 4.5-inchd display with a 720p HD resolution. Under the hood, the smartphone packs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, but Verizon's model has 1.5GB of RAM as opposed to the 1GB of RAM found on the One Mini 2. Verizon's version also comes with 16GB of internal storage capacity.

While the HTC One Remix obviously comes with watered-down specs compared to the flagship HTC One M8, it does borrow some important features from its big brother. The handset boasts the same metal design that has received such high praise, although it does make use of more plastic in its build. The UltraPixel Duo camera setup on the flagship is replaced by a regular 13-megapixel rear camera on the HTC One Remix, but the front shooter remains unchanged at 5 megapixels.

The Verizon-bound HTC One Remix further boasts two BoomSound speakers at the top and bottom panels. On the software side, the smartphone runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat and comes with the latest HTC Sense 6.0 user interface (UI), complete with the popular Blinkfeed and Zoe features.

Verizon has officially launched the HTC One Remix on Thursday, July 24, selling the smartphone both online and in its physical retail locations. The handset costs $99.99 with a two-year contract, but it's also available with Verizon EDGE for eligible customers who want to upgrade. The HTC One Remix is LTE-enabled, and is compatible with Verizon's high-seed XLTE.

Check out Verizon's announcement at this link to learn more about the HTC One Remix, or head over to the carrier's website here to place your order. It's worth pointing out that while Verizon mentions a $99.99 price on-contact in its announcement, the product page (see image above) shows a $49.99 contract price, due at checkout. Ths $50 discount off the normal pricing is most likely part of a limited-time promotion, so interested buyers might want to take advantage of it while it lasts.
