Although the HTC One max hasn’t been launched yet, people are already interested in buying the device that is supposed to compete with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Considering its designation it was expected that the HTC One Max to resemble the HTC One. Now we have the proof. As you can see in the photo above, the device has the same design as the HTC One, the only difference being that it’s bigger in size.
The image was published by Chinese website ePrice, which has been a constant leaks provider lately. Apart from the image featuring the HTC One Max, the side also offers the smartphone’s most important technical specifications. Anyway, according to the report, the HTC One Max will come with a 5.9-inch SLCD screen having a full HD resolution. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU clocked at 2.3GHz, will include 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot. Other specs that need to be mentioned are the UltraPixel camera with OIS, a 3,300 mAh battery and BoomSound speakers.
MicroSD card support is good news, but sadly it seems that the feature will only be available in the Asian countries. It’s the same case as the HTC One, smartphone which features a removable back case and microSD support in China, but these features are not available in the other markets.
As you can see in the photo, the black edges of the screen makes the bezel very thin, which is pretty nice. The overall design looks great and it should because HTC has just recreated the design of the One (and HTC Mini, too), which is not bad because the HTC One has been a big hit, and this has not happened a lot to HTC in the past couple of years. Also, it looks like the HTC One Max will still be made of aluminum and its thickness will be 9.4 mm.
Unfortunately, the report doesn’t say anything about a stylus, accessory that is very helpful when using a device this size, just like in the case of the Note family.
As for the release date, there is no word about it yet, but according to recent rumors, HTC will launch the One Max sometime in fall in order to rival the Galaxy Note 2, Sony Xperia Z Ultra, but also the Galaxy Mega 6.3.
