HTC One Max rumor round-up: 5.9-inch screen, Snapdragon 800, UltraPixel camera, Q4 release date
HTC One Max – that's one of the hottest names thrown back and forth through Rumorland right now. And that's because it is not the name of just any smartphone. The handset in question is going to be HTC's first "phablet" device, offering a humongous screen for those who just can't get enough display real estate. How do we know all that? Well, the rumor mill has been pretty generous on leaks about the HTC One Max. The smartphone even posed for the camera numerous times, revealing what the device will actually look like. Yup, it will be more or less a larger HTC One, as the name implies. 

So all in all, there is little that we don't know about the HTC One Max. That's why we thought it would be nice to put together all the insider info about it that has leaked so far and update you, guys, on the matter. Here's what we got:

I really hope that the 2.1 ultrapixel isn't true. It has to be at least 8 mp to impress.

2.1 megapixel is the front facing camera...

Yeah but why would you need a ultrapixel front camera?

Yeah. They never said anything about an ultrapixel frontal camera. They only mentioned 2.1 megapixel. And like papa said, why not.

The same reason Sony has an Exmor R front-facing camera on it's devices.

Dont be a joke. Go and take some basics of what Pixels is and how it works. 4MP might be let down in camera, but packing larger pixels are called UltraPixel.

Back-to-the-future - does anyone remember the original Moto brick phone? Here is a link:

I'm sold on massive phones. I loved my Note 2 and I really like my Fonepad however once a case is put on the Fonepad it really becomes too big. I have only one pair of shorts that I have trouble fitting my Fonepad in and its only once it has a flip case on it. Other than that one pair it fits easily in all my pants pockets even with a flip case. So for anyone who gripes that anything bigger than an iPhone won't fit in pants I have no idea what you're wearing... I'm buying a Note 3 next month and if the One Max comes to Verizon I might trade my Note 3 for it because I LOVE the front facing speakers on my HTC One. But that swap is conditional on the One Max having a Snapdragon 800. If it's a 600 or S4 Pro I'll pass and stick with the Note 3.

I am lost.. you possess note 2, Fonepad, you are buing note3 and look forward for htc one max if it is available on your network, but you have only one pair of shorts....

LOL. Sorry for the confusion. No I own a Fonepad and a HTC One currently. I sold my Note 2 and bought a Fonepad from Taiwan and had it shipped to the USA. I own plenty of pants and shorts but only one pair of shorts have front pockets that are too small for my Fonepad inside a flip case to fit in them. All my other clothes have big enough pockets. I plan on selling my One and purchasing a Note 3 with the intention of upgrading to the One Max if I like that better.

I'm curious if once I have a 5.7-5.9" screened phone if my need for the Fonepad would wane... We'll see...

This design looked good on One and One mini, but now it just looks ugly. Also, One was already big for a 5-incher and if this one has them too, then it'll be as big as Xperia Z Ultra. More interested in what 1520 has to offer in terms of hardware (software wise, it's an endless debate).

*One was already big for a 5-incher because of front stereo speakes

I hope HTC upgrades the specs of the One Max to 8+ Mp on the rear camera and S600 to S800. 3Gb of RAM would be nice too.

No other OEM is going to have 3GB of RAM until next year. Samsung is ahead of the game by a few months.
