HTC One Max has October 17th release date?
posted by Alan F. / Sep 28, 2013, 5:45 AM
The HTC One Max will feature a 5.9 inch screen with 1080 x 1920 resolution. Unlike the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, which powers the normal sized HTC One, the phablet brings little more ooomph with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 powering the phablet. Or is it a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM that will be on board? Either way, you can expect the HTC One Max not to have any trouble getting up in the morning.
One person who tested the phone found a new UI for the camera and also reported that the fingerprint scanner was flawless. The "recognition rate is very high, there was no awkward situation [with using it]," said the tester. We expect the camera to offer HDR video recording, three levels of blemish correction and a beauty mode. The phone should be priced at $23,900 NTD which is only $810 USD.

I wonder if they'll do it like Apple did, preventing the fingerprints from being accessed.

Are u sure apple prevented them from being accessed?! i don't think so... ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ this will be more secure than iphone 5S. because android is open source and custom rom makers (CM) make it secure...

"...Apple did, preventing the fingerprints from being accessed." I'm sure that there is ways how to intercept fingerprint data before data is stored or while stored fingerprint data is compared to incoming fingerprint data.

Not sure if that's even possible because there is so much you can do with a rooted/bootloader unlocked phone. Do people really want a locked down HTC device if your into custom roms? I don't see people being too thrilled with HTC not allowing rooting or unlocked bootloaders.

If it is stored then it can be accessed, simple logic that brainwashed people can't understand.

I'm sorry but you're not very bright if you buy this. HTC is going down in an earlier round and swinging like a defenseless toddler. Look at the news. Beats Audio is leaving because they caught on. Think about this: do you want a phone that will keep getting os updates? HTC is one of the worse companies that pushes updates. Also why wouldn't you buy a BlackBerry.? You wouldn't because it is dead. well the same thing applies the HTC they are dead Too. Choose wisely.

Its gonna be an amazing device from a super amazing company that makes premium quality products. I dunno from where you're getting that its dead or maybe ur just trolling, but its far from dead. Apple, Nokia, Sony and HTC are the only companies that still believe in quality and i believe in them.

You must have been dreaming otherwise you would have heard of that HTC is dying, http://www.androidbeat.com/201
I can keep posting many other articles if you like to wake up.

As much as i'm pi$$ed at Samsung for putting region sim locks on their phone... I'll still have to pick up a Note 3 over this... S-Pen features outweigh them "Beautiful front Speakers". And Samsung updates outweigh HTC's updates.

S800 or not means contender or not. If this comes in with an S600 it will fail.

I'm super interested in the front speakers but refuse to go lower than the current screen size of my Note 2 so this phone certainly has my interest....now if only it'll come to Verizon!

If it does come to Verizon it'll probably come drastically altered under the name "DROID Super Mega Ultra" with a plastic build and big "Verizon" logos etched into the display, the volume keys, the power button, the camera-lens, and the fingerprint scanner. Either that, or you'll have to wait 6 months for Verizon to pick up the original.

So im just wondering if the note 3 will be a lot faster with the 3g ram or, will you not be able to tell the difference really? And what about being able to extend your storage with the max? They haven't mentioned that at all. Thanks

You probably won't be able to tell the difference. The Note 3 needs that extra GB of RAM because Samsung loads so much crap onto the Note 3 that it takes it all up; HTC's UI is much more clean and doesn't take up as much resources. Also, it probably won't support expandable storage. As far as I know, the only HTC flagships that have supported MicroSD expansion in the last 2 years are from the Butterfly series.

Released on October 17 without an unveiling or announcement, I'm starting to think this isn't even a big deal for HTC maybe they're ashamed that this will just be a larger version of the HTC One without much new changes or additions part from the fingerprint scanner. I currently own the One but I'll be upgrading to the nexus 5.
