Purported images of HTC One Max leaked

Purported images of HTC One Max leaked
We have not seen a deluge of information leaking about a larger-sized HTC One device, presumably to be called the HTC One Max. The gang at ePrice in Taiwan have apparently been able to take a few snapshots of this phablet sized HTC.

The HTC One Max, also known as the T6, is arriving late to the party to take on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Mega, Huawei Ascend Mate and Sony Xperia Z Ultra, but seeing as how it looks like HTC has preserved the design language of the HTC One, we think it will be a contender.

The HTC One Max is apparently being tested in China as we speak and will be available in a couple different flavors to accommodate specific markets. In China, a dual-SIM model with detachable back plate will be available. The international version will be a “real” HTC One with uni-body design.

On the specs front, it has been rumored (and continues to be so) that the HTC One Max will have a 5.9-inch full HD screen, UltraPixel camera with optical image stabilization, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage with support for microSD card expansion. The battery is reportedly a 3,200 or 3,300mAh cell and the processor will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 tuned to 2.3Ghz.

Software-wise, Android 4.3 is a must, and the latest version of Sense UI is surely on board as well. There is no confirmation if the HTC One Max will have a stylus or not. Rumors are pointing to a September announcement at IFA in Germany.

Install a good camera not 3mp one and make AWS frequency version and I'll buy it.

You may see a bump in the camera compared to the HTC One, at least if HTC is smart enough to update it. I would expect them to have something within the 10-13 MP range. I would also assume they would have frequencies to support all of the major carriers. I do have a minor complaint about the article where it stated: "The HTC One Max, also known as the T6, is arriving late to the party." It's not arriving late to the party. It's trying to compete with the Galaxy Note III, LG G2, and the Xperia Ultra. The only one out of that list that has been officially announced is the Xperia Ultra but I don't think it's been officially released yet (I don't keep up with releases in foreign countries). If it is announced at IFA then that means it will be announced around the same time as the Galaxy Note III which is one of it's direct competitors.

I just wanted to say that I really appreciate your feedback Dr. Phil. You always have well rounded reasons and arguments and aren't so biased like so many others. Love hearing what you have to say. I am a Droid fan (although I have Apple products) . I much prefer Android (because of the openness and flexibility) but for what I use it for Apple works better for me at the moment. I think Android is a much better platform overall but I do see strengths (and weaknesses) in all OS's and I see that you feel the same way (or at least present it as such). So thank you for your well balanced comments.

This is one SEXY looking device. It's CLEARLY the best looking & judging from the HTC One design it just looks VERY well build. This phone will definitely contend with the Samsung Galaxy Note III. Let me please see what the NEW Note III will look like.

we'll know in a month about the Note 3, but i gree that the One Max may eliminate my distaste in HTC over the last few months. Like I said, the "battle of the phablets" wil begin sooner rather than later and I'll have some choices to make in december when Im eligible to upgrade. Will it be........Galaxy Note 3..........Xperia Z Ultra..........or the One Max???

Can't say i like it... Recently, the design language of all OEMs are like "The design that sells is the design for all". Not just this one...just about everyone of 'em. It seems like all their thoughts on shapes and sizes have all gone haywire.

Well bro, their bottom line is money. They'll go with the trend till it stops being profitable. All these companies are greedy and looking for the dollar.

Don't EVER compare this or any HTC to an iPhone. They are not even in the same universe to compare.

Finally slim bezels on the sides. That's what I give the Moto X a ton of credit for. a device with a .7" larger screen than the iP5 yet almost the same size. The HTC One 4.7" was too big for it's screen size.

I never actually saw it as too big. Maybe a bit too tall, but not by much. Compared to the Razr HD (4.7" display), Galaxy S3 (4.8"), and One X (4.7"), it's about the same size, the Razr being the most compact of them all. It's about 5.5 mm taller and less than 1 mm wider than the Razr HD. Less than 1 mm taller and about 2 mm more narrow than the GS3. And about 4 mm taller and 2 mm more narrow than the One X. Really the only difference is in the height, and that's because of the front speakers, which is a welcomed addition despite the added height.

Right sorry I agree. I should correct myself and say that it wasn't too big -- but rather I appreciate the effort to minimize the bezel more. Tablets need some of that bezel, but phones could use less for better one-handed operation.

Yeah the One had alot of wasted space with all the bezel. It reminds me of what they were saying about the note 3 being roughly the same size as the 2 but with less bezel. This looks amazing, on that aspect. Except for them buttons, of course.

Remove the friggin' stupid buttons and the HTC Logo. On screen buttons would do great on such a humongous smartphone. Plus it would make the phone look a little more pretty. Take a look at this:-http://goo.gl/G8CGJh

LOL 5.5mm is a lot and the GS3 is much much more compact with a bigger screen. The GS3 has huge dimensions on paper but it has so many curves that most of the phone measures much less than the largest points, which they have to report. The HTC One is bigger overall than the GS4 for example and that has a 5 inch screen. Not to mention the Xperia ZL and the upcoming Moto X. The HTC One is HUGE for a 4.7 inch phone.

I've always said the One was too tall, but the width isn't much different from other phones with 4.7" displays. And, you're comparing it to the most compact phones out right now, it's not very fair. Compared with the One X, Nexus 4, and Razr HD, the only thing that's "huge" about it is the height, and that's because of the front facing speakers, which are well worth it.

Install a camera on the htc one max and please don't call it ultrapxel and tell us a true number of megapixels,although it's a good camera people want it to be a megapixel camera with a good number of megapixels,I don't think that most people like the ultrapixel term

Not seeing a slot for a stylus. The stylus is a key feature of Samsung's Note series. This kinda surprised me as the company who made their stylus tech for their tablets just recently developed a scaled down stylus likely for future phones. Without having that unique feature separating it from the other phones it becomes an over-sized phone more of a burden to carry and call from. Not having a stylus will make it even harder for HTC to jump into the game and compete with the Note 3 that already has a large fan base.

Basically a HTC One on steroids. Bezel-less screen is pretty nice. Let's see how this turns out.

They have eliminated from the side bezel like 50% from HTC ONE, so it looks like it wont be much wider than the ONE but it will be quite taller.

This thing is gonna be huge with those front facing speakers which makes the top and bottom bezels too big.
