HTC One Max receives its GCF approval; phablet one step closer to unveiling
The HTC One Max is probably the most talked about and eagerly awaited handset that has yet to be unveiled by its manufacturer. It feels like we have been writing about this beast for months now, so it is with great pleasure that we can tell you that the device has received GCF approval. That allows Taiwan based HTC to scratch one more item off of its 'Things to do' list pertaining to this model.

The GCF approval reveals that the HTC One Max will support SIM lock although that doesn't mean it will be SIM locked in all of the markets it is sold in. The unit will be stuffed with quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE giving support to triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900MHz, 1900MHz and 2100 MHz. In addition, the phablet will offer connectivity to triband LTE at 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2600 MHz. Those are also known as LTE bands 3, 7 and 20.

Now that the GCF approval has been made, the unveiling of the HTC One Max shouldn't be too far away.

Phablet beast??? Lol. Thats crown is already taken by the Note 3. Srry no one can compete in this space. If the Htc One couldnt compete with the S4 this year which in reality wasnt the best phone then it deffinetely cant compete with the Note 3 which is the best phablet if not the best phone in 2013

Yeah you are right..even gs4 outsell the htc one that doesnt mean it is the best phone this year....good marketing and brand recognition is a big factor which is where htc is lacking.

According to gsmarena this is rocking an s800 again with the same ultrapixel camera, removable battery and fingerprint sensor. The screen size is also the same as the Note 3's but the form is larger, kinda like the One and GS4.

Larger manly because of the front speakers which is a good thing in my opinion. Just hope they release it soon.

This will be a Major FLOP! HTC ONE MAX is Like a Huge Version of HTC ONE. LOL. Still, My Money Goes to NOTE 3! Note 3 IS THE BEST SMARTPHONE IN THE MARKET! Along with Note 2 and S4. But Note 3 is undeniably the BEAST! Way to Go Samsung!
