HTC One Max name confirmed; phablet heading to Sprint
The HTC One Max, which is rumored to contain a fingerprint sensor (oddly appropriate today), is believed to have a 5.9 inch Super LCD-3 screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920. That works out to a pixel density of 342ppi. A quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 is under the hood while 2GB of RAM is on board. A high capacity, for HTC, 3200mAh battery will keep the lights on.
Keep in mind that HTC still needs to make this official. The HTC One Max will be facing plenty of competition upon its birth from the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, and possibly the Nokia Lumia 1520. The latter, also unannounced, is expected to be available next quarter and would be the first phablet powered by Windows Phone. This model is expected to be introduced at the end of this month with a 6 inch screen, 2GB of RAM, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor inside, and the GDR3 update.

I was planning on swearing-off HTC for a long time now, but this might just bring me back. It's a battle between this, the G2, and the Note 3 (the X1 tragically didn't impress me all that much. Looks like I won't be going pure-Sony after all.)

Only thing holding me back is the new nexus that will be announced. After that I can make my final decision on what toy to get.

Peter Chou has been a double-edged sword for the company. He built it up, now he's tearing it down.
(according to this article at least)

I got it finally and probably. He was trying to say that, HTC has to live long enough so that he could buy the One max. :3

Yea whenever I go to the front page if just look for anything to do with it first then just look at everything else.

But no T-Mobile or Verizon... HTC never learns does it?

Let's not jump to conclusions based on tweeted rumors now...
..Granted, that's pretty much why PhoneArena exists in the first place... but even so...

Why is everyone bandwagoning on HL3 theories...?

think i\'d go with the note 3 still for the stylus.
21. jad.boutary (Posts: 107; Member since: 04 Sep 2013)
I think this one is coming with stylus too.. at least i hope so

29. jad.boutary (Posts: 107; Member since: 04 Sep 2013)
so what's ur point I didn't get it they said no word about the stylus and the fingerprint that doesn't mean it will not get ..
and after this article a leaked picture showed that it will support a fingerprint scanner.. so again what's ur point??
34. jad.boutary (Posts: 107; Member since: 04 Sep 2013)
Ok ur talking about the stylus and they said no word about it that doesn't mean they will not use one right??
23. newbey123 (Posts: 487; Member since: 19 Mar 2012)
This is the phablet I have been waiting for, hope they announce it soon. I\'ve been keeping my upgrade for 5 months waiting.
24. jad.boutary (Posts: 107; Member since: 04 Sep 2013)
same here :P
I wanted to buy the one but a rumor said that this one is coming so i was very excited and still waiting :p

I can see buying the 1520 for something different, but this one seems like Note 3 Lite without a stylus, 3G RAM or any other compelling reason to buy it over the Note 3. Yeah I get that some will like the aesthetic enough to get it in spite of its relatively minor deficiencies, or the feel of it. I was just hoping for something that would grab me.

Give Us here at Sprint the HTC ONE MAX with Windows Phone 8.1 or Windows Blue and Make an Official Announcement telling Everyone that this Will be Coming to Sprint and also have Robert Downey Jr start Earning the Money that He will be getting by Promoting the HTC ONE MAX with WINDOWS PHONE for SPRINT!
If and When SPRINT GETS the HTC ONE MAX with WINDOWS PHONE, I Will purchase it the Same Day it is Available for Sale!

It is not how big it is but how useful it will be. The G Pro failed because it can have a great screen but no useful features to take advantage of the screen. Even if you don't use the features as much (Note 3) there still needs to be something that grabs your attention and say WOW, i can do this or that with it. The truth is, none of these features on smart phones are used that often, only about 10% of a phones features is actually used. HTC One Max will do well but just like the G Pro it will not out do the Note 3.
38. jad.boutary (Posts: 107; Member since: 04 Sep 2013)
ur right.. and i think the first thing to say wow is these boom sound speakers.. they are great on HTC one maybe they come bigger on the max
hope it will come with these feature u r talking about :P
