HTC teases One Max in a new infographic of history’s greatest trios

HTC teases One Max in a new infographic of history’s greatest trios
The HTC One launched early this year with a signature and quite unique aluminum unibody design, and it remains on of a very few extremely well designed, premium feeling Android smartphones. Later in the year, the HTC One mini, a slightly smaller, 4.3” version of the HTC One launched keeping the design appeal, and now HTC teases that it’s about to complete the trio of One’s with the HTC One Max.

The hint for that comes from an infographic HTC published entitled “Great trios in history.” In it, HTC, a company that itself is a three-letter abbreviation, mentions “there are so many more trios, and a new one about to be completed.”

So yes, with all rumors, leaks and images of HTC’s upcoming phablet, the HTC One Max, we’re allegedly very close to HTC completing its 2013 trio. The One Max is rumored to feature a huge 5.9” 1080 x 1920 pixel display and run on a Snapdragon 600 system chip with 2GB of RAM. Best of all, it’d come with a huge 3200mAh battery and a fingerprint sensor on its back.

I think their marketing team is the preschool across the road from their office.

If this phone really has a Snapdragon 600 it's DOA. You can't expect customers to pay top dollar for early 2013 specs. The Oppo N1 was excused because it had low pricing and lots of other innovative features, but the One Max doesn't seem to offer anything but increased size.

The reason it has a 600 and not an 800 is because the purpose of this phone is fantastic battery life. The lack of a high power processor doesn't make it a poor choice; as an analogy, there are plenty luxury cars without 500 horsepower.

even the pantecth note/Lumia 1520/Xiaomi Mi3 and various other unknown brands are using snapdragon 800 for their large screened phones, even that crap flip phone from Samsung has an s800. There really is no reason for them not to cut measures or in this case, costs.

but the snapdragon 800 takes less power and is more powerful

So far, battery tests between the Snapdragon 600 and the 800 have shown that the 800 gets better battery life in some areas and pretty much the same in others (give or take a few minutes). It would be a bit silly to include the snapdragon 600 over the 800 when all other competition this part of the year uses it.

HTC is actually smart. If their HTC One series aren't selling well, their niche phablet series will sell even less. Why opt for more expensive components when you can just go for cheaper, depreciated ones? Brilliant marketing and R&D indeed!

Though htc has come up with some very good looking devices lately, their marketing and customer service teams have screwed them up--I was a lucky owner of Htc One until something went wrong with it and device stopped working! Instead of coming to my rescue, the service team showed me stupid reasons (violating TOS blah blah blah..) and denied to offer service under warranty!! If this is the treatment they offer for their flagship phone owners, then how are they hoping to make a comeback?? Even though I don't like samsung phones much, their service is unparalled and no wonder people are tending to buy their phones.

Is anyone else confused with the trio of R2D2, Chewie, and Han? If there was a defined trio in star wars it would be Luke, C3PO, and R2D2.
