HTC One Max pictured wearing Verizon's colors

We noted the other day that it feels as though we've been talking about this device for ages. Actually, the HTC One mini came out first via AT&T, but has quickly found itself mired in the quicksand of oblivion from where no smartphone can recover. But unlike the mini, the HTC One Max is going to include a fingerprint sensor, and is going to be one beast of a phone powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. We can also confirm that the HTC One Max will have a removable back.
Check out the pictures of the HTC One Max wearing Verizon's colors below. By the way, the photo was taken inside a Verizon store in the northeast where the phone was demonstrated to employees. The other phone on the table for comparison purposes is the Apple iPhone 5.
- Display 5.9" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 4 MP / 2.1 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core, 1700 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3300 mAh(25h 3G talk time)

I can't wait for this phone, but am torn between this and the note 3. Pro for HTC: Front speakers now just waiting on battery size and camera Pros for Samsung: Samsung made Faster updates

I was torn between the two, but after comparing the two, I have to go with the HTC. The battery will be a 3,300. I prefer the UI, Boom Sound and better build quality of HTC, so I would say you would be happier with the One Max.

You say you were torn comparing the two, have you yourself actually had a live unit to play around with? Think this is the only HTC Phone i've been interested in this year and gotta admit, HTC have improved with their updates this year with the One as opposed to the Sensation and Desire S which never made it past 4.0 and 2.3.5.

Faster updates you say? The Note 2 is still on 4.1.2. It's 2 updates behind. The HTC One is about to receive 4.3. And come October 31 Kitkat 4.4 will put every android device back again. If only Google can release the Nexus 5 on all carriers. I'm tired of being one to three steps behind.

Freaking awesome news. I'm killing off our Sprint family plan this month to jump to Verizon. Currently I have a HTC One and I was going to buy a Note 3 to ensure I could do a direct over trade for a One Max IF it ever came to Verizon. Now I might just wait to buy a One Max. I had a Note 2 previously and honestly the Value Ads they throw into their Note line really improves it's usefulness as a Jumbo smartphone, that and the 13.0MP camera is definitely going to be better than the 4.0MP shooter on the One Max. But HTCs Boomsound is really awesome to have and their Zoe feature is awesome to have taking kid pictures being I have three little ones. Grrrr.... The decision is going to be so hard....

Tedkord, I used to think it definitely had a 800 chip set but shockingly in the benchmarks confirm that it has late last year's s4 pro :( I hope its just a lie.

Verizon's logo ruined the design
