We have interesting news for consumers looking out for the HTC One Max – the phablet is expected to be officially announced in the month of October and will be priced somewhere around $800.
The HTC One Max is definitely days (and most probably weeks) away from being officially unveiled by the company. But a source from China has given out images of the HTC One Max that show us the specs and other important details.
As you can see in the images below, the HTC One Max is quite big and packed with power. And similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, we know a lot about the HTC One Max well before the device becomes official.
If you have been following reports and rumors about this phablet, its time to compare those previous specs with the new ones. The HTC One Max is expected to have a 5.9-inch touchscreen display with a full HD 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution. The device will run on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean right out of the box and will have a higher capacity battery when compared to the Note 3 – 3300mAh.
But it seems that the HTC phablet will not be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, at least not the one shown in these images. In stead, the device might be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset and powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB of RAM. It is expected to have 16GB of internal storage (we are not sure if other options will be available) and a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The primary camera on the HTC One Max is expected to be the same as the one present on the HTC One, 4 Ultrapixel. But this time we hope that the camera supports optical image stabilization, a feature that was skipped in the HTC One Mini. And even though the Apple iPhone 5S was the first smartphone to feature a fingerprint sensor, the HTC One Max is expected to be the second.
So there you have it, the latest images and the new rumored specs of the HTC One Max. As mentioned earlier, the device is expected to be priced around $800 and will be available from October. Is the HTC One Max worth waiting for, and is the $800 price tag (if finalized) justified? Let us know in the comments below.
