A good leak or tip can certainly get the juices flowing. They also get the mind spinning off in a multitude of potential directions. One the more reliable tipsters out there, @Evleaks, does a killer job at keeping various images and tips rolling out of his, obviously, insanely connected world. Today he pushed out a few nuggets of info that certainly got our brains spinning in circles. Of course these are only leaks, but @Evleaks has a great track record so we believe that they are fairly likely.
Earlier this morning he put up a simple little image that said “HTC One Remix” with the text reading “Coming to Verizon.” It would seem that Verizon will be picking up another variant of the HTC one. Sprint did it with the HTC One Harmon-Kardon edition, so why shouldn’t Verizon have their own “special” edition of the device too? The name certainly sounds music related, but we are doubtful it will be a Harmon-Kardon build, but it could be. Beat’s is certainly out of the question at this point and the only other real “thing” going on in sound is the new Samsung headphones, so that is out, and the old standby of Dolby Digital. We know there was a red HTC One image tipped as a Verizon version, it is possible that could turn out to be the Remix, but the color change wouldn’t be enough for a rebranded name change. PhoneArena dug in a little more and found the above image attached to a trademark filling with the USPTO. It doesn’t offer up much info though.
If we go beyond the HTC One in general, a finger could be pointed towards the remix being the HTC One Prime. That could make a little more sense really. We certainly hope that is doesn’t point to the HTC One Mini 2. Then again, with all the missing things in the smaller HTC One Mini 2, a music addition to spice it up could make for a solid ‘Remix’ platform. A lot of questions come from this and not a lot of answers can be had easily until Verizon makes the announcement.
The second bit of info from @Evleaks today tipped towards a Samsung SM-N910. It is supposedly showing up for Sprint and U.S. Cellular and is being point towards as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. It lines up based on the previous Note 3 listings being N900A (AT&T), N900T (T-Mobile) and so on. He also mentions that it is headed to AT&T also and that all three are swinging in with 32GB storage capacity too. hopefully that is the base and and not the high side option. Personally I am over 16GB devices, 32GB needs to be the standard.
So, have at it. Speculate and chat about the info and have fun with it.
