A 6" phone is a 6" phone and when you have to fit HTC's trademark BoomSound
speakers at the front, too, the handset has all the makings of a humongous one. Just how big?
Well, judging from the leaked picture of the eventual HTC One Max
you see here, its size in girly hands seems more akin to a small tablet of sorts, rather than a phone. It won't be for everybody, but then again Samsung surprised us all with the success of its big screen phones, showing that a lot of people don't mind trading comfort for extra screen real estate and functionality.
As a reminder, the screen will measure 5.9 inches and has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 (FHD). Powering the phablet is a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 (or 800
) with 2 GB of RAM, and there is a 32 GB capacity microSD slot for added convenience. A 3200 mAh battery is expected to be on board.
Beats Audio remains a feature on the HTC One Max, which also supports NFC. The phablet's general looks are those of an elongated HTC One, though it adds a fingerprint scanner on the back of the device to set itself apart from those other phablets out there.
