New info hailing from China has helped string together the missing pieces to the puzzle, as far as HTC's One Max phablet is concerned. While a big part of the specs sheet that the Max is said to carry has already been revealed, we still had a few blank spots both in terms of software and hardware.
According to the new leak, the Taiwanese manufacturer's phablet contender will run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with its custom Sense 5.5 UI on top. We currently have no information what the updated version of the company's proprietary skin will bring to the table.
On the hardware side, the new intel suggests that a 2.1MP shooter will take the seat at the front, while an UltraPixel camera of unknown capabilities is said to occupy the rear. The device is also said to come with support for TD-LTE, which is China's homegrown version of the high-speed standard, leaving little doubt that the international version of the device will also sport 4G LTE support. Unsurprisingly, a dual-SIM, dual-standby version of the HTC One Max will be also made available, and it wouldn't be a stretch to guess that it's targeted at Asian customers, where these devices are in high demand.
The rest of the specs that we have on the HTC One Max include:
2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC
5.9-inch 1080p Super LCD3 display
2GB of RAM with 16GB of internal, microSD-expandable storage
3200 or 3300mAh battery unit
Possibly, a fingerprint scanner on the back
Pricing of the phablet remains unknown, but the official launch of the device has been rumored to take place as early as September.
UPDATE: Due to a translation misshap, we wrongly reported that the rear camera will be a 2.1MP UltraPixel shooter, whereas the leak actually suggests that the front-facing module will be a 2.1MP snapper, with an UltraPixel unit on the back.
