Back in May, HTC officially unveiled the “beautifully compact” One Mini 2 phone, but with sparse details on United States availability. Early rumors pointed to the device launching in the United States on Verizon, but rebranded as the HTC One Remix. Today, Big Red seemingly confirmed the One Remix by inadvertently uploading a promo video for it to its YouTube channel. The video has since been set to private, but not without some quick eyes catching what it talked about.

The description for the video touted that the HTC One Remix has a 4.5-inch HD display with a “soft, curved back and tapered edges,” implying that stylistically it will be the same as the HTC One Mini 2.

The HTC One Remix has a 4.5-inch HD display with a soft, curved back and tapered edges. The HTC One Remix is packed with cutting-edge features.

Unfortunately, specific details about the device are still rather sparse, including a release date. The One Mini 2 has a design exactly like the One M8, just smaller. The specs have been downgraded somewhat, however, with a Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM. The camera is also a 13MP shooter, as opposed to the Duo Camera on the original device. So we can expect that the One Remix will feature these same internals and design.

When the HTC One Remix does launch in Verizon stores, it should feature Android 4.4.2 with, of course, Sense on top.
