More HTC One Max images, release info and other details emerge

htc-one-max-3We must be getting close to the HTC One Max’s launch. The rumor mill has been going at full speed with leaks and rumors, but lately we have been getting much better looks at the upcoming “phablet”. Today we bring you another look at the HTC One Max, as well as some details we have all be waiting to hear about.

These images come from Chinese social network Weibo. They are nothing we haven’t seen in the past, but bring more proof that some of the features will be present. The fingerprint reader is still present, for example. In addition, we can see the usual HTC charging pins for docking the device.

HTC One Max rumored specs

There is also some bad news, though. The specs are not amazing, though they are still very good. The device is said to sport a 1.7 GHz processor (probably Snapdragon 600), 2 GB of RAM, a 5.9-inch 1080p display and Android 4.3.

HTC is really catching my attention with the battery on this phone, though. That 3,300 mAh beast should have no problem getting you through the day, even with the large display.

HTC One Max price and availability

In addition to the images and specs, we are also hearing about the price and release date. Rumors say the HTC One Max will be ready for release next month with a price of $800. Of course, this would be in Asia. We are not sure when and how much it would cost when/if it comes to the States.

You can go ahead and stay tuned, though! We should be hearing all these details soon. Are any of you buying this device?

    No way this could have anything less than a s800 chipset, if this is true then there is no way I will waste my money on this.

    • Kale Dostick

      Exactly my thoughts on the situation. Why spend $800 on that, when you can get a Note 3 for the same or less price with better specs.

      • Bart Heuts

        I really love how people start to react after hearing some rumor. They actually got the pricing details of of some Chinese image where they directly converted the Chinese currency to US dollars, and this is obviously the wrong way to do that. Just like you cannot convert euros into dollars regarding smartphone prices, so the phone will probably be a lot cheaper than $800.

      • holdmydroidandwatchthis

        Even if it had the s800, the 50% increase in ram is the deciding factor for me.

  • Worldclassflame

    I love my HTC one, every aspect, the only thing that to me is an issue is its the battery life, it’s less than stellar to say the least. Anyway, for me it’s nexus or nothing so hurry up Google and announced the Damn thing!

    • domatau

      battery also takes forever to charge, major minus pts there for me

      • No_Nickname90

        That’s to aid with preserving the overall battery life since it’s a nonremovable battery.

        Though it does charge uber slow. LoL!!

      • Worldclassflame

        Yes!!! It. Takes forever to charge lol glad I’m not the only one who notices it

      • phatmanXXL [16,000+ posts]

        I can burn through the battery on my HTC One in 3 hours then it takes all freakin’ day to charge it again. I’m sure the Max will be just as bad with charging, my Note 2 charges in about 90 minutes, sometimes less.

    • No_Nickname90

      I can’t agree with you on that. The battery life has been amazing for me. And I don’t go out my way to preserve battery with those apps and turning useless settings off.

      So I’m more than sure I can get more battery life out of my phone. For what I do with my phone, it can make it home for me to charge. It’s not like I have to charge it within the day if I start my day with a full charge.

    • DavidVarghese

      My battery life gets me through a 13 hour day, without it being in power save mode.

      Pro tip: if you got Facebook synced with your phone, un-sync it and log out from the Facebook app. My battery life improved drastically because of that.

      • Worldclassflame

        Really? Gonna try to do the Facebook thing. Honestly I sleep about 7 hours a night and on stand by alone it drains anywhere between 12 to 15 percent, I think that’s a lot

  • phatmanXXL [16,000+ posts]

    I love the design, but I’m leaning more towards the Note 3

  • Blkegk

    So much for waiting on the HTC one max. Note 3 is my next purchase.

  • https://plus.google.com/108596272537415356460/posts Jason Farrell

    That seals it: The Note 3 is still the king of phablets for 2013-mid14 while being ~$100 cheaper as well!

    The only things the One Max has going for it are the front-facing speakers and a “premium metal” design that’ll be hidden inside a case anyway, unless you’re looking forward to dents and scratches.

    • No_Nickname90

      I hope the front facing speakers are louder.

      And I prefer the design of the HTC One. It looks cool. I don’t care if I hide it in a case. When I take it out the case to clean it of the dust build up, I’ll have a cool looking phone to look at.

      It’s like a little surprise. I’m tired of using plastic and black phones. I want a change in scenery. LoL!!

      • Steven Cannan

        Ok guys I am eye balling the Acer liquid s2 check it

  • ari_free

    Well, it has the fingerprint reader for those people who think they need it because Apple told them they do

    • No_Nickname90

      Because a fingerprint design was not already in the making. =.P

    • phatmanXXL [16,000+ posts]

      Hopefully its a touchpad and not some stupid gimmicky fingerprint reader.

  • Christopher Kirby

    A HTC Representative that was promoting the HTC One, had an oversized HTC One that resembled the phone here. Looked larger than my Note 2. Questioned what model phone he had behind him and he quickly put it away stating we were not supposed to see that. I said looks like a large HTC One and he said its the HTC One Phablet.

  • EnX$$

    this sucks. Htc doesn’t Listen or Learn. always making the wrong
    choices. the HTC ONE MAX needs Snapdragon 800,16mp camera,3gb of
    ram,stylus, im very disappoint in HTC….

    • No_Nickname90

      First world problems.

      • ari_free

        It’s HTC’s problem if they can’t do what it takes to survive in this market. And right now they are in big trouble.

        • No_Nickname90

          Our little must-have-the-most-up-to-date group isn’t large enough for HTC to tailor to just us.

          Why does Samsung do it? Because they have the money to tailor to a larger group of people’s needs.

          Of course, I would still be upset if the HTC One Max didn’t come with the best of the best. Even though the Snapdragon 600 is running just fine for me. LoL!!

          I just want more because I’m a spoiled brat and I complain about things like that. =.P

          • ari_free

            It’s called HTC One Max. Who are they trying to selling it to if not someone who wants everything?

        • RussianDroid

          In trouble indeed. If this phone doesn’t fly off the shelf, HTC will be forced to become somebody’s bi*ch.

          Don’t get me wrong, I love(ed) the brand and i’m really disappointing that the company is on the decline.

          • Antony

            This phone will not fly!! They’ve just made a dumbest move ever, NO S800!! Cutting its own throat before even coming… Sorry, now I’m going for Note 3!!!

    • Fel Pe

      Sounds like u need a note 3!!

    • bluevoodo

      Why dafuq do you need a Snapdragon 800, HTC one is already the smoothest of the android phones and thats with sense running atop of it. If you want a spec sheet go with Samsung theyre glad to sell you 8 cores that lag, burn in prone Amoled screens, and 9 Gb internal memory.

      • pr34687

        faggot

        • bluevoodo

          aren’t you cute?

      • deuceja

        Could not have said it best, I just hate the fact that Samsung customers only look at the specs, but don’t see that the Note 2 lags. Me personally its the TouchWiz, but hey if you beef the specs up hopefully you can over come that right. It’s like driving a manual and not shifting at the appropriate time, and you can have all 500 horses it not gonna run at its best.

        • Baka

          Where does the Note 2 lag?

        • Wesley Da’Nomad

          I’ll take TW over Sense any day. Granted, my last experience with Sense was on my Evo 3D, but the idea of the GUI doesn’t seem to have changed much.

  • BUZZ KILL

    I gave up on waiting for this phone (I mean phablet) and got the HTC One. I’m on Verizon, so even when the Max comes out Q4 2013…. Verizon won’t have it until Q3 2014!

  • Bob

    This phone has to have SD card and removable battery otherwise they even come close to competing with note 3. TRI BAND would put htc on top!

  • Steve

    Ok so why is everyone getting bent out of shape for something that leaked out of China? Also, who says the SD600 is a bad chipset. Also, if one more person says “it should have 3GB RAM”, just stop it already. For the last time, Samsung is the only company with that particular memory unit, and I’m sure they wont sell it until sometime next year.

    Now, the 16GB of internal storage is somewhat a let down. Not completely, but only because the Nexus 4 does fine with it. $800 is what makes the 16GB a terrible decision.

    At the end of the day though, this is just a China bred rumor that until I see the actual product, is just that…….a rumor.

  • Wesley Da’Nomad

    I really want front facing speakers on the Note3. Then it would be perfect to me. I do not want to wait another month+ for a possible One Max to come out with low storage, no SD card, lesser chipset, or replaceable battery.

  • robsa walker

    Don’t give a monkeys about the ram or processor, just as long as it’s smooth to use like the HTC One. A bigger battery would be ace – the HTC One battery isn’t brilliant, although I put a lot of that down to the fact I can’t stop playing with it!

  • Shawndh

    I’ve been using the HTC One for about 2 months and I’m not as impressed as I thought I would be. If they release this new device, they need to make some changes to Sense. It’s just down right boring and they’ve removed some features from the previous version. And that big lense on the back is loose at times and very easy to damage. Wish I would have kept my One X

    Now I know why the rumors & leaks for this device caused me so much headscratching. Could also be why HTC didn’t showcase it at the last IFA.
