Sprint's HTC One max set for November 15th launch say Best Buy and Sprint websites
If you're a Sprint customer, or looking to become one, and your heart is set on the HTC One max, we have some important news for you. The phablet-sized version of HTC's flagship Android phone will be launched November 15th via Sprint. This is actually confirmed by a pair of websites. The first is Sprint's software support page for the HTC One max and it reveals that the phone will be the recipient of a quick update that brings LTE UI enhancements. On the page that displays this information, it shows a release date for the phone of November 15th.

In addition, Best Buy's website also shows the Sprint version of the HTC One max getting released on November 15th. Pricing is $249.99 with a signed two-year contract with the nation's third largest carrier. According to the site, you can now pre-order the Sprint branded HTC One max from Best Buy.

For those who have been under a rock lately, we will review the specs for this HTC One on steroids. Let's start with the news that right out of the box, Android 4.3 and Sense 5.5 will be pre-installed. The HTC One max is equipped with a 5.9 inch Super LCD 3 display with resolution of 1080 x 1920.This works out to a pixel density of 373ppi. Under the hood is a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU. The Adreno 320 handles the graphics chores. 2GB of RAM graces the inside of the handset and there is 16GB of native storage on board. The HTC One max, unlike the HTC One, comes with a microSD slot and this one offers 64GB capacity. The 4MP snapper on back of the phone captures 1080 x 1920 video in 30fps, and 720 x 1280 video in 60 fps.The front-facing camera weighs in at 2.1MP. A very unlike HTC 3300mAh battery keeps the lights on, and let's not forget the fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone.

We've seen some indication that HTC is currently hard at work on the sequel to the HTC One, codenamed the M8. That, of course, won't be ready until next year. But starting this Friday, you should be able to purchase the Sprint branded HTC One max. We do expect to see versions of the handset made available shortly for both Verizon and AT&T customers as well.

I have been debating whether to get the One Max or hold on to my One X until the new M8 comes out!

$250 on contract for a bigger version of an over 6-month old phone? Same exact specs plus a crappy fingerprint scanner. All they would have needed was a Snap 800 & some added functionality over the original One to make it worth it. Not to mention, it's not even gonna be available on all of the Big 4 like the original One was. If that device couldn't make a substantial dent in S4 sales, this one doesn't stand a chance against the Note 3 considering it's also late to the party. No wonder HTC's market share continues to dwindle. The Note 3 blows this out of the water.

Lol $250 are you kidding me? I'd spend an extra $100 to get the Note 3 instead.

I guess my words arent heard BECAUSE I dont understand why HTC would be an exclusive carrier for the One Max. I have the G Pro and its another example of why you shouldnt have carrier exclusives anymore.
