With the Galaxy Note 3, Sony Honami and Nokia Lumia phablet all set to come out sometime in September, it may be a hard venture for the HTC One Max to gain traction. New press shots from evleaks show the six-inch device and to the untested eye it looks just like the HTC One.
There are a few minor differences, but like the HTC One Mini, the Taiwanese phone maker has made sure the design is consistent across all One devices. The HTC One Max flash has been moved below the camera and the plastic edges return, as they did on the HTC One Mini.
Nothing on specs came from the leak, but from previous rumors the HTC One Max will be packed out with top of the line specs, to match the Galaxy Note 3 when it finally arrives. It all starts with the 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage and a 3300mAh battery to power the beast.
The real highlight feature has got to be the 1080p screen, 6-inches may be a little too big for some, but for Android fans who love the new larger sized phones, and this is set to be one of the best. Currently the Huawei Ascend Mate, Xperia Z Ultra and Samsung Galaxy Mega target the six-inch smartphone space, but the HTC One Max may be able to take over.
Obviously this will not be the most successful smartphone on the market, the size-factor does target this at a rather niche audience who will want to get their hands on the huge device. HTC are likely to announce the HTC One Max at IFA 2013, alongside the Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Honami.
