Upcoming HTC One (M8) Max phablet tipped to boast Snapdragon 805 chipset

We might be having a successor to the HTC One max in the works, according to tipsters, and it will be looking all grown-up and metallic, thanks to a large display fitted in the general shape and form of the One (M8). That's right, last year's One max with its slightly disappointing Snapdragon 600 processor, could step aside for the One (M8) Max, previously rumored as the (M8) Prime.
expected to sport a 5.5"+ display panel, but this time it should be equipped with the scorching hot Snapdragon 805 chipset, which would make it a fast beast, worthy of the competition with an eventual Note 4 that is also expected to feature Qualcomm's latest. As for the rest of the specs, nothing is confirmed at this point, though we do hope that HTC will reconsider putting a Duo Camera in such a huge handset, but opt for something more orthodox and with more pixels instead.The phablet is
- Display 5.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 4 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, Quad-core, 2300 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2600 mAh(20h 3G talk time)

I love my Note 3, and always wanted a One Max because I really really liked my M7. But I'm not interested in a HUGE bodied aluminum HTC phone anymore. Aluminum ages horribly, and Boomsound speakers add too much size to the body. I love how my Note 3 is predominantly screen with only enough room for off screen nav buttons on the bottom. But I'm thinking of going just a little smaller overall size next time. And I imagine a 5.5" screened One will have such huge bezels that the overall size will be bigger than the 5.7" screened Note 3. I really think my future dollars are probably going to the Moto X2. As long as Motorola left the recipe the same and just added a larger screen I'm there. It will be mine!

The One Maxx last year was a total failure.I can't believe that snobody in htc didn't see that coming.I mean phone to large to handle,specs were mid-range back then even.If you are making a big phone it has to be a spec beast.

The HTC ONE MAX being Downsized from 5.9" to 5.5" while this Phone being Updated is a Serious Epic Fail. Either keep the Screen the Same Size or go Bigger, NOT Smaller! Add More RAM & ROM. DON'T make this Update to the HTC ONE MAX be a Disappointing Fail. Make this Another HTC Achievement that Everyone Will be Talking about and Striving to Catch Up to and Copy!

Who wants this crap when you can get premium Note 4 at the same price? HTC's One Max was a joke last year. HTC phones don't have any features to take advantage of big screen like Note series already have. Eg, multitasking,S Note,etc.

Samsung fans are funny.. HTC makes better phones, no lag... Something that can't be said with their phones being crammed with tons of useless features. HTC does it right every time even with the max you're just upset they are going to make the note 4 look like an average Joe.

If only the one max came to AT&T I would be using it, for what I use the phone for the 600 would be plenty, but if this actually comes around I may give it another shot, I hope the extra size will help with the bezels somehow but I can deal as long as they have nice boomsound speakers again
