“Non-final” HTC One Max press render hits the web


HTC has been teasing a bigger version of the HTC One — known around the tech world as the HTC T6 or HTC One Max — for a bit of time now. With “big things ahead” and a new Robert Downey Jr-injected ad campaign, we wholly expect the company to bring the device to us next month at IFA Berlin. Before that, though, it appears we may have gotten our first semi-official look at the thing in a press render.

HTC One Max

A “non-final” render of the One Max has been leaked by the @evleaks Twitter account, giving us a peak at what the phone might look like once it finally arrives. There are no surprises here, really — it looks like freakin’ huge HTC One.

That said, the specs rumored to be sitting inside that aluminum ball of wonder has us really happy. In case you’re not in the know, we’re expecting:

  • 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • HTC UltraPixel camera
  • 32GB or 64GB of internal storage
  • 3,200mAh battery
  • Android 4.2 or 4.3 with HTC Sense 5
  • and more

It definitely would be quite the looker, though if HTC doesn’t find a way to shave that bezel down some, folks will find it hard to stuff into their jeans (particularly of the “skinny” variety).

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. They need to scrap this phone and just make a new HTC Flyer with these specs and speakers on the front.

    1. How is this not better than the Flyer in every way? That thing was plagued with a pre-tablet version of Android, it was also far too bulky and heavy to be truly portable. I expect the Max will have a much better battery life and display too.

      1. Of course it’s better. so give it an extra inch and make it a flyer. No need for a 6 inch phone. I’d rather get a tablet with these specs for $300-ish than spend $700 for this trainwreck. Got it?

        1. I’d be more interested in this if they get the bezel/thickness down enough to make it pocketable. Trouble with a 7″ device is that you still need a bag or something to carry it in. I did love using my Nexus 7 but it got left at home more often than not.

          1. My Nexus 7 fits in my back pocket just fine. Carried everywhere for a long time.

  2. Or like Sammy release both.

  3. Suprised you guys haven’t mentioned anything about HTCs new ad compaign http://www.androidcentral.com/htc-again-teases-its-rebranding-robert-downey-jr-and-cat

  4. If it has a stylus of some sort, I might be in. That’s really the only reason I see to have a huge phone – to be able to take notes on it.

    1. lolwut… the only thing u can think of to do with a 5.9 inch HD screen is TAKE NOTES!?

      1. My phone is for work stuff, making calls, and taking pictures. So for me, yeah, that’s the only stuff that makes sense. Being able to scribble stuff quickly is very important and a big screen with a stylus makes that easier. Otherwise, why would I want to tote around a gigantic phone?

      2. HD Notes. Gotta be able to read that sloppy stylus writing. LoL!!

  5. This is the phablet I’ve been waiting for… I’m all in. I’d ditch my HTC One in a heartbeat for a Max variant.

    1. I’m already prepared to jump to it. Can’t wait.

  6. This battery appears to be quite small considering some of the new phones coming out. I was expecting a little more in the battery department. But, alas, I dont know how these newest of the new top end phones fair. My GS3 lasts me the entire day on light usage.

    1. my nexus 4 lasts me a day as well (2100 mah) on light usage as well, gets me to late PM on moderate usage, struggles in heavy usage

      1. I get over 2 days of light usage on my note 2 =). And on average I get way over a day. Battery life is something I don’t ever worry about anymore.

        1. that’s fantastic, hopefully the nexus 5 will come with that 3,000 mah battery so i too can enjoy some 30 hour battery life.

      2. That’s that stock.

        1. yeah, i mean i rooted it a few weeks ago to get LTE but i have stock kernal i think. Boy told me to install infinity kernal with carbon rom but i havent gotten around to doing it yet.

    2. My S4 lasted me maybe 7 hours tops, where my One lasts me 15 hours normally. I’m not concerned about the battery in the Max at all.

      1. “but if you want to score the best phone out there for running stock Android, the Galaxy S 4 Google Play edition is where it’s at.

        Compared to the HTC One Google Play edition, the GS4 features superior battery life,

        Google Wallet and AWS connectivity for T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network.”

        Engadget http://www.engadget.com/2013/08/12/back-to-school-guide-smartphones/

        1. I would have to disagree because in my experience the S4 battery is garbage compared to the One so I doubt the Play Edition would change that too much, and I will never need the AWS connectivity.

          1. well the thing that bogs down the s4 battery is apparently touchwhiz. Its become really heavy and has so many “features” that when on suck up the battery. A friend of mine rooted his gs4 n says his battery life is quite lovely.

        2. Battery life is different for everyone. There’s currently no standard as too many factors affect it.

  7. Who cares about a stylus, I want it and I want it NOW!!!! And if it comes as a GPE, take my first born………….

    1. I’m a first born. =.S
      This isn’t very pleasing to me. =.S

      1. Funny thing is, so am I. I’m a first and only. Lol

  8. awesome

  9. That power button better not be at top…. Also is there a camera button on the bottom right like we salll of the SketchUp?

  10. Alright HTC this is a damn good start to beat the Note 3 impress me!

  11. Jeff Gordon already posted on endgaget and his twitter that the photos are fakes.

  12. I want to see HTC make a Tablet with the same build quality that the One has. Speakers and all the awesomeness.

  13. They better not doing that dumb exclusivity with att again for 64 GB version. I want that one… or else I’ll just throw in my towel, never had an HTC’s and may not get one anytime soon either….

  14. I like the bezel on the HTC One. Best speaker placement of any phone, ever. Bottom or back firing speakers are for those that like to cup hands to watch some videos. Plus it’s stereo! :D
