Dozens upon dozens of Android phones from the various OEMs have been updated to Lollipop over the last several months, but it looks like at least a couple of devices (one of which is barely a year old) won’t be getting any Material Design goodness. HTC has confirmed that both the HTC One Mini 2 and its predecessor the One Mini, won’t—at least officially—be getting the update to the latest version of Google’s mobile OS.

The HTC One mini 2 is coming to America, but it will be carrying a different moniker. After weeks of rumors and leaks, Verizon confirmed today that it will start selling the HTC One Remix on July 24th for $100 with a two year service agreement. If you’re not familiar with the
mini 2 Remix, it’s pretty much a watered-down version of the HTC One M8.

HTC One Remix reportedly launching on Verizon on July 24th
The HTC One Remix will be launching on Verizon on July 24th, according to @evleaks. If you’re unfamiliar with this device, it’s believed to be the US version of the HTC One mini 2, which features a 4.5-inch 720p display, a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 13-megapixel rear-facing shooter and a front-facing 5-megapixel camera. This compressed HTC One also ships with Android 4.4.2 skinned with Sense 6.

HTC One mini 2 will reportedly be Verizon’s HTC One Remix
The HTC One mini 2 was announced earlier today, but the Taiwanese phone maker didn’t share any details about US carriers offering the device. However, it appears that the company’s shrunken flagship could be coming to Verizon. According to evleaks, the mini 2 will be available on Big Red’s network as the HTC One Remix. This wouldn’t be the first time an American carrier used a different name for an international device, however we’re not too sure if this tactic is really necessary. Nevertheless, Verizon customers may soon be able to get their hands on what HTC calls the “most grippable Android ever.”
The HTC One mini 2 has officially been announced. This compact smartphone takes on a similar design when compared to the One (M8), but in a smaller form-factor. It’s definitely an upgrade over the previous One mini, but with its size comes downgraded specifications.
The HTC One mini 2 packs a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4.5-inch 720p display, 16GB of storage (with an expandable SD card slot), and a a 2,100mAh battery. You’re also getting the same 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a 13-megapixel rear shooter, and HTC’s famous BoomSound speakers.
