Latest snaps of HTC One Max reconfirm fingerprint scanner
posted by Alan F. / Sep 15, 2013, 2:52 PM
One of the new photos reveals that the code name for the phone is HTC 8088 and it will support GSM and LTE pipelines. The handset is expected to come to market with a 5.9 inch glass with 1080 x 1920 resolution (FHD for those who like three letter abbreviations) and a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor under the hood. 2GB of RAM is on board along with 16GB of native storage. A microSD slot is available and a very un-HTC like 3300mAh battery powers the unit. Let's not forget the UltraPixel snapper, and Android 4.3 is pre-installed out of the box.
Just the other day, the official branding for the phone leaked followed today by the new photos below. So far there has been nary a peep from the Taiwan based handset manufacturer as to when we can expect the phone to be made official.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Did you notice the new Sense? the recent app looks different than what HTC has correctly. they always come up with new cool visually looking UI with new phones. HTC One X also had a nice looking recent app screen. the web OS looking like which then HTC copied and now apple is copying now in iOS7. nothing wrong with copying as long as person gives credit to actually owner of idea.

Why would the new phablet use an older processor than the phone it is based off the HTC One which has a SD 600

Sony is a OEM, unless you meant Z1.

Leaks don't have to be true, you know that right? They're right about a lot of things but why would HTC put a slower processor in this than the regular one?

Well why would the Galaxy Mega have a slower processor than the Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note 2? Remember just because it's big doesn't mean it's their flagship. They think about how to keep prices in check. Especially considering that carriers want them to trim things down to keep their subsidizes in a reasonable range.

I sincerely hope EVleaks is proven to be nothing more than an attention seeking troll with this latest rumour of the S4 Pro, he got a couple of rumours wrong. Note 3 fingerprint scanner, 2.5 GB of RAM, Nexus 5/D280 confusion with G2, false Galaxy s4 rendering taken from a sales website and an incorrect non-final rendering of the HTC One Max's back to which an exec caught out on his fibbing. Plus those yellow Nokia 1520 screenshot renderings look a little copy and paste.

That phone has failure written all over it! Large for the sake of being large isn't going to cut it. And without a stylus, it's just a large phone without a real mission.

The HTC One is an amazing phone. I'd totally love to have a One Max if it's specs were comparable to a One but it had a jumbo screen. It's large enough to steal some need to use my Fonepad but it has the horsepower and front facing speakers that make video games and movies awesome on it. Plus I prefer HTCs recently used apps button trigger style and app management. I'd be in heaven, but I'm getting a Note 3 first then I'll see how a One Max tops it before I resell and buy a One Max.

IMO they will totally fail if this is released to long after the Note3.But I must say it is a very nice looking phablet but I must agree with you cj I have the Note2 and I use my stylus for everything without one as big as that phone is would be hard for me to get it.I don't understand why more companies don't put the speakers on the front tho that was a smart move by HTC and why did they stop putting the kickstand on the back of the big phones that was awesome I loved my Evo for that.Bring back the kickstands for these phablets!

As far as HTC making an in court deal with apple patent wise. Does anybody know if HTC was allowed to view apple's product documents? I just find it too much of a coincidence that the one maxx has a finger print scanner as of now. Yes i know the Atrix had one too.
