HTC One Mini 2

We were wondering what would be different about the rumored HTC One Remix for Verizon than the HTC One Mini 2 it's reportedly based on. We can now tell you at least one thing: color. Notorious leaker @evleaks just outed what is said to be the first image of the One Remix (you can check it out after the break), and though it's in a case and has had the background poorly photoshopped out, what we see here is an HTC One Mini with a dark metal finish for the speaker grilles (it's close to the brushed gunmetal finish of our HTC One Mini 2 hands-on), but with bright blue plastic trim around the bottom instead of the black we're used to seeing.

If anything, we'd have thought that a custom-colored phone destined for Verizon would have been tinted red, but apparently that's just for Taiwan. Apart from color, what else would you like to see made different with the HTC One Remix on Verizon?

HTC One Remix leaks, looks like a One Mini 2 with blue plastic


That blue appears to be nice. A different look for a Verizon phone.

Don't worry it will have the familiar Verizon logo and branding crapped with unwanted additional customization so that future software updates can be months late compared to international and unlocked models.

I believe it's only brand dilution if this was... Maybe a HTC one super mini. This is just an update of last year's mini. HTC is struggling with market share and their old way of keeping a high end dense brand line of phones hasn't worked for them. If they refuse to market successfully (which it looks like they do) they need to extend their brand to reach more for different consumers, call it re-branding

Something I'd like to see made different (though I know it will never happen) is flagship specs in a flagship-branded phone
