HTC One Max snapped on the sly, looking huge

HTC One Max snapped on the sly, looking huge
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.

Look at them thin ass bezels, ama buy it only if it has a 800 processor or 600 would just be fine, 2 gigs of ram where's 3 for god sake, and that juicy rumoured 3300 may would be mine. If u think its big its not its only in a girls hand there's even a pic of the max next to the note 3 its only a tiny bit taller and looks tiny bit less wider then the note3

That would be a great mini-tablet specially with those front-speakers.

It looks like it's the same size as the Xperia Ultra and it has a 0.44" larger screen...

And you re saying that based on what? Have you seen them both side by side??? Z ultra has big bezels and doesnt have additional speaker.

Before playing the overly defensive card, it was my opinion based my my observation. HTC One is the same size as the S4 and G2, with the latter sporting a larger screen. At 5.9", one can conclude it would be about the same size as the Mega or XZU.

Look at the dimensions of z1: 144x74mm with 5 inch screen and onscreen buttons. Means the sreen is about 4.8 less the buttons. I know that they hide when you play a movie or a game but in daily use they dont. htc one is 137x68mm with capacitive buttons. So the z1 is the biggest one for me. You know what i mean?

And it is 4.7 inch i know. But anyway sony has also relatively big devices. The same thing is when you consider z ultra. Dont know why couldnt they make it little bit thicker but with smaller bezel

Want it!:D looks great. Even if its s600 it will still be smooth. I dont mind it will be taller then note 3. Wanted to buy a tablet but that looks perfect for me. Dont need tablet anymore:)

"Wanted to buy a tablet that looks perfect for me. Dont need tablet anymore :)" Did you mean phablet, because if not then you kind of contradicted yourself.

No. I was thinking about buying a tablet but now i think having one device like this would be perfect.

yep, HTC One Max is almost perfect for me. I don't like the Note 3 because of its plastic & bloatware. And I don't care if One Max is still snapdragon 600, It's still very fast. 2GB of RAM is enough too.

Except in gaming, which the Adreno 330 crushes it's little brother, the 320 and the significant speed boost.

I'VE NEVER OWNED AHONE I FEEL WASN'T CLOCKED RIGHT, BUT I ROOT AND DELETE BLOATWARE AS WELL AS MANY OTHER OEM & CARRIER SUPPLIED THINGS SO MAYBE THAT'S WHY BUT IM SURE THIS PHONE CAN HANDLE ALMOST ANYTHING YOU THROW AT IT

It looks nice... looks just the HTC One :P i might consider it due to its battery size... however... I don't think I need a phone with a near 6" screen...

I hope this phone has diamond cuts like the HTC one or maybe not for the removable battery.
