HTC One Max Specs and Photos Leak, Rumored for Sept. Release


Remember those rumors that HTC would launch a phablet version of the One called the HTC One Max? Well those suspicions have resurfaced as an allegedly leaked photo of the device has hit the Web.

Taiwanese website ePrice has published an image claiming to be the 5.9-inch One Max citing unnamed sources. The device looks exactly like its flagship counterpart but with a longer display, although you can’t notice any difference just by looking at the photo.

 According to the website, the alleged One Max will have the same screen resolution as the flagship One and a bigger 3,300 mAh battery to power its larger display. The Taiwanese site claims that the One Max will also feature a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM, as opposed to the  1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU of the current HTC One.

The report also claims that a dual-SIM version of the handset with a detachable back cover is being tested in mainland China. The removable rear is meant to make it easier to access the SIM trays and microSD card slot, but a translation of the Chinese text suggests that the battery will not be replaceable.

This alleged HTC One Max leak comes just after the company launched its HTC One Mini last month—which also appeared on the Web before its official unveiling. If HTC does decide to launch a phablet version of its flagship, the One Max could give Samsung’s Galaxy Note line some stiff competition. Samsung sold five million units of its Galaxy Note 2 in just two months, and the company is expected to unveil its third-generation Note ahead of this year’s IFA in Berlin. HTC is rumored to unveil the One Max at the very same show in September.
