HTC One Max Officially Announced with 5.9-inch Display, Fingerprint Sensor – Specs & Details

The HTC One Max Android phablet is officially announced, just a day after the actual specs were all leaked through a retail packaging. And all the leaked specs were all true, with the One Max having a 5.9-inch touchscreen, Snapdragon 600 processor but the pricing of the device is not known yet. Running the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS, the device comes with an Ultrapixel camera with the LED flash on the rear side, while there is a 2.1-megapixel front facing camera too included. Check below for all the specifications of the HTC One Max.

The HTC One Max phablet again made an appearance in a few leaked live photos where it was wearing the Verizon tag, and the sources did claim that there was a removable back cover in place along with a fingerprint sensor on the back. The rest of the rumors are still the same, where one is expecting a Snapdragon 800 SoC processor, a 6-inch display with the 1080p resolution and the same HTC One camera with the 4-megapixel Ultrapixel technology lens.

The phone is expected to be made official in the coming week or two.

More clearer photos of the HTC One Max have come out, and it’s again through Weibo, and it clearly shows the Fingerprint Scanner and a lot more things, with the specifications too. So, just like what was being expected and leaked before, is what you are actually going to see in the One Max. The HTC One Max 8088 is going to come with a 5.9 inch screen with the 1980 x 1080 pixels screen resolution, and there would be a 1.7 GHz processor (we haven’t been able to see the chipset, whether a Snapdragon S4 Pro or a Snapdragon 800, as we had found both in the different rumors), 2GB RAM and a 5-megapixel camera which could be the ultrapixel one.

16GB of onboard storage is what is being shown, and the battery capacity is 3300 mAh. And as expected, it would be the new Android 4.3 version that the device would come with. The pricing is expected to be around $800, and the expected launch is around October 2013, and we might have to wait for the Android KitKat based Nexus device for the One Max to become official.

The scanner though doesn’t take it’s place on the front button area but it lies below the camera lens on the rear side with a squarish design which might have just the single purpose.

The One Max is codenamed the HTC 8088 and it is expected to come with a 5.9 inch full HD display, and as the leaked screenshots suggest, there would be the GSM and LTE support in it. The internal powering is expected to be 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor along with 2GB of RAM and the camera is the UltraPixel one, which was introduced in the company’s flagship HTC One smartphone earlier this year.

The screenshots even suggest that we might be seeing the new HTC Sense UI in the Android 4.3 KitKat version that was recently announced by Google, and we might see that officially along with the announcement of the Nexus 5 device.

It won’t be a long wait before we get to see this device officially announced, but that shouldn’t come before the Nexus 5 entry, we guess.

    If the HTC One Max is going to compete with the Note 3, then it needs better or similar hardware to the Note 3. The only advantage that Max has is the camera and the slightly larger screen size. I have the Note 2. I would have definitely been more intrigued if the Max has an micro SD slot and 3G of RAM. I hope that it has the Quad core processor also. Deal breaker for me when I found out the Samsung Mega has a 1.5 GHz dual processor. The removable battery would have been good, however, I prefer just a larger capacity battery in the range of 4000mAH. It is a hassle to change battery because you have to take off the case also. Too many steps. I found out a great way to preserve battery life, one can turn off the mobile data as well as your wifi, Bluetooth, GPS. You can make phone calls and still receive word text. You won’t be able to get SMS text such as picture mail and group text. However, you will get an alert. At that point, turn on your mobile data to fetch those SMS as well as emails.

    Here is hoping HTC and Motorola can do well and challenge Samsung so they ALL will innovate.

      That is where HTC failed to provide what was being expected. They came up with the Snapdragon 600 boosting, unlike the Snapdragon 800 and also there’s a 3300 mAh battery, although that isn’t any less because even the Note 3 has a 3200 mAh battery but yes the draining speed would depend on several factors. And for the camera, I have to tell you that the 13MP camera of the Note 3 or the LG G2 are way better than the Ultrapixel shooter from the HTC One, and that same Ultrapixel camera is being brought in the HTC One Max.

    Chetan Kitkat is android 4.4 and not 4.3… 4.3 is still Jellybean.

    Note 3 is far more matter how much Htc tries to increase their screen size they can just not compete with the galaxy note series.

    I also wish HTC luck on their new phone. I will like the size if the overall dimensions are not too large. I hope they include a SD slot and removable battery. With a phone like this, it needs to have more portable computer functionality like the Note 2 & 3. I would love to see HTC jump into a strong position for the future again. No more locked down misses like the One.

    The Note 3 has a user replaceable battery. Done.

    I love my HTC EVO 4G LTE but my phone leaves the charger at 0400 and I’m out of juice at noon. I’d rather carry an extra battery than my auxiliary battery pack.

    Whew. The thing is… When I see that 3gb RAM by the note3. That’s it. I gotta have it. …and the Samsung galaxy series devices are just so easy to root. All the “software gimmicks” that people complain about. Swoosh – gone lol

    what HTC lacks is software gimmicks that Samsung has like that of gesture controls.

    Good luck to HTC they are definitely wondering into uncharted territory. This category is owned by Samsung for 2yrs now. All other participants are seriously rookies and so are their products. Nothing will compare to the Galaxy Note 3 from October 2013 to July 2014.
