HTC’s One Max is leaked again, this time in a set of high-res images that offer the clearest look yet at the device.
HTC is going to officially unveil the One Max on October 15 in China. The device has been rumored for a long time now, and has been leaked so many times that we have a clear understanding of the hardware that it will come with. A distinguishing feature on this device will be a fingerprint scanner which is at the back of the device.
Other hardware details include a 5.9-inch full-HD screen, 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory, the same Ultrapixel camera that was on the HTC One, 1 2.1 MP front shooter and a 3,300 mAh battery. In terms of connectivity, the One Max will come with NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi ac.
The One Max was being rumored from as far back as July. The device would’ve been the ideal offering to boost sales for HTC, as it goes head-to-head in the phablet segment against devices like the Galaxy Note 2 (And now the Note 3) and LG’s Optimus G Pro. If HTC launched it sometime in August, that is. They’re continuing to make the same mistakes they did with the HTC One. While the One was announced before the Galaxy S4, HTC could not get a headstart in the market as they failed to launch the device before the Galaxy S4. The Galaxy S4 was actually available in stores a full month before the HTC One started selling.
HTC faces a similar situation now with the One Max, as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 is already available worldwide. HTC once again squandered whatever advantage it could have gained by launching the device early. Now we just have to wait and see how the device fares against other offerings in this segment.
