Leaked photos show off the HTC One Max

HTC One Max leakWe’ve known for a little while now that the HTC One Max would be arriving later this year, and now we’ve finally got some leaked photos to share with you. These come courtesy the Taiwanese website ePrice, and show us a phone that looks almost exactly like the existing HTC One – just bigger (surprise!).

Rumored specs for the HTC One Max include a 5.9-inch screen, which is a full inch larger than the screen on the original HTC One. It will have the same 1080p resolution, which means it will have a slightly lower DPI, although this probably won’t be very noticeable to most people. It’s also rumored to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.3G GHz chip, instead of the Snapdragon 600 that the original One has, along with a 3300mAh battery.

However, other than that, the device is expected to keep the same 2GB of RAM, the same 4MP “Ultrapixel” back camera, the same 2.1MP front-facing camera, and the same front-facing dual speakers. It is expected to come with 16GB of onboard storage and a microSD card slot, which is sure to please many of you. Chinese markets will apparently have models that offer dual SIM functionality, but most of the rest of the world probably won’t see that. AT&T is expected to begin selling this in September.

Will you be upgrading to the One Max, or are you happy with your current device?

    I’m happy with what I got (HTC One) right now so I won’t be updating :)

    Also, I think the HTC One is the perfect size for a phone. Anything bigger then that and you’re going to look like one of those idiots that take pictures with their iPad hahaha

    Good article John!

      Lol, that’s funny!! I always compared it to holding a flat screen TV to take pictures!

    I wouldn’t trade my current HTC One for simply a larger screen, it would need something else to make it more compelling.

    I’d prefer to see HTC develop a ruggedized version of the One like the Samsung S4 Active.

    A larger screen (and larger battery) are really the only things that would cause me to consider this… and honestly, I’m happy with my under-five-inches Nexus 4 right now. The EVO 4G LTE was also a good size. These mega-phones just seem so huge!

    I have been watching this for a while, and love my EVO 4G LTE. With that said if this device is able to use all of Sprint’s LTE blocks (in particular the old IDEN 800MHz network), and has SVDO and SVLTE then I may consider. I am also waiting for news to see if the MicroSD slot is confirmed but so far only rumors.

    It would be a go for me if it had an external SD card slot. That is what is making me go the way of the Galaxy series.

    I’m not really interested in a phone that is much wider/taller than the EVO LTE. For me to carry a phone, it has to be pocketable which is to say, it should be able to fit in my jean back pocket WHILE wearing a sufficiently protective case (Otterbox, Seido, etc…). My EVO LTE with Otterbox Defender case is really pushing it for me. That being said, I’m happy to go a little thicker if it means bigger battery.

    I’m a little disappointed at the aspect ratio. If that picture is to scale, it’s a little too tall for a “phablet” if that is what they were intending. A slightly wider device would have been more useful and in line with the competition (Note).

    If everything were true and it came with an eight mp ultra pixel camera.

    Still running an HTC One X+. No plans on upgrading anytime soon. Nothing has really peaked my interest that has been recently released. Having a pocket anchor is not my idea of a phone anyway.

    I still using my HTC3D. I don’t like the EVO 4G LTE, because of no MicroSD slot. With that said, My contract is up with sprint soon, should I move to the a different cell provider and switch brands (Galaxy series).
    Or
    Should I be a faithful customer (15+ years) wait for this phone and stay with sprint.
