HTC One max price leaks out

HTC One max price leaks out
The HTC One max has been official for a few days now, though the company has failed to communicate a fairly essential piece of the puzzle that may just decide the faith of its new phablet: price. Unfortunately for HTC, the mobile space doesn't much care for the not knowing, so it's not surprising that we've already gotten the first price leak from an alleged Chinese source for GSM Insider.

According to the anonymous rebel, the unlocked international version of the HTC One max will command a $833 price tag (RMB 5,088). We say international version, because HTC actually targeted China as their primary market with the One max for the first time, though according to the source, pricing there is actually a bit steeper: $899 (or RMB 5,488) for the local market, regardless of carrier.

The last snippet of information includes the fact that HTC China, for one, will be offering the HTC One max in a sort of a bundle with extra accessories like the HTC Mini – a featurephone for your smartphone, and a Bluetooth headset. It doesn't, then, seem like a stretch to imagine that HTC may offer a similar deal to its non-Chinsee customers, though this will spike the price, up to $982 (RMB 5,998) in the case of HTC China.

In closing words, this will be every bit as premium as it looks, despite HTC's woeful financial predicament, and that sounds fair.

Not 2 more may be 3. :) That's why they are going down, their pricing is worst and highly overpriced with some old specs as compared to Note III & ZU.

U guys should have a pacifier in ur mouth, aluminum design, 3300 man, 600 is fast and there is no way the phone will ever go higher then 1.5 ghz, finger print sensor, boom sound speakers, the best display with minimum bezel vs zu huge bezel, srsly carrying a zu is like a tablet that can call, has the worst display its not even better then a 720 p, laggy inter face and etc...

Note 3 has a way better display. Don't feed into the Sony advertising.Note 3 is the best smartphone in the world.

Lol note 3 problably has the best amoled display but it’s not good enough to beat IPS + Triluminos technology in ZU display.

i honestly cant understand this criticism from all sides. as a samsung fan i am disappointed at all the negative comments by samsung lovers. i have s4 which lags like a pi*s several people reporting lag on note3 while htc one on s600 runs like a charm i would have this lag-free one max or one than lagsung/lagwiz im sure this 3300mah battery will outlast note3's 3200 battery

You do not know what you are talking about! The Note 3 has zero lag! I now I have about 30 to 40 apps and this phone is smooth as silk. Get your facts straight fanboy. I even know iPhone users that say it is hands down the best android phone they have seen.

I think they should price it about the same as the Galaxy mega 6.3, yes, that's quite low, but HTC needs this to sell more than the xperia Z ultra (with the seriously cool official case that doubles the battery and has a stylus) is just stupid

You people don't understand pricing. Phone in Asian markets have alway been more expensive. You can't compare US price to America or European price. And if PA was not just a bad website that would know that. The S4 when first came out was 5199 yuan which is more then the prices of the 833. Now all the fanboy can keep being dumb.

After the Galaxy 2 had battery swelling issues and now the same with the Galaxy S4; the One Max now looks like a much better option than the Note 3 if you ask me. Also not being made of plastic/fake leather is a pretty big plus. Samsung makes some nice devices but the cheap construction and really stupid issues they seem to have always makes me question the fanboyism.

As a big fan of HTC, I Can now see their true downfall. Only a miracle can save them; lets hope for the best. For now, R.I.P HTC
