HTC One Max specs may not include a Snapdragon 800

HTC One Max specs may not include a Snapdragon 800
There have been plenty of leaks concerning the upcoming HTC One Max, which is the phablet that HTC has in the works. The specs of the device have been somewhat up in the air though. The hope has been that the Max would include a Snapdragon 800, because of course people want the best. But, a new leak indicates that may not be the case.

This one come straight from China Mobile via Weibo, so this one carries a bit more weight than the normal rumor. The image sent out lays out a few specs for the HTC One Max. Most of it we've seen before like the 5.9-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 3300mAh battery, and Android 4.3. The interesting difference here is that it lists the processor as 1.7GHz. The Snapdragon 800 doesn't run that slowly, but it could be an S4 Pro or perhaps a Snapdragon 600. 

The leak also says that the HTC One Max will be released in October, and will sell for 4999 yuan, which would be about $815. Though, we obviously don't expect that to be the off-contract pricing in the U.S.

There was nothing that had to be fixed by his post. The only one up the G2 has on the Note 3 is OIS. If I've made this far without it, I can go another few months without it. Just saying.

Touchwiz has been used by hundreds of millions of people, and has helped to make Samsung the #1 smartphone manufacturer in the world.

At least it's Touchwiz and not a wannabe Touchwiz.

Different markets could utilize different processors, lest we forget what Samsung has done with its flagships' processors over the years.

I don't blame them if it's true. This device never would have sold enough to justify the more expensive SoC component. So, minus the finger print scanner, it literally is just an oversized HTC One.

Even if it comes with the S800, this phone will be basically only a stretched version of the HTC One. So fail !

Utter flop. Other phones will be cheaper and faster than this

I was seriously considering getting this for my brother who has very poor eyesight: big screen, high resolution, very easy to read. It was between this and the Note 3, but if this is true, then I guess the decisions is made.

Really impressed by LG G2. It may be my next phone. Great screen combined with good battery life are essential for me.
