HTC One max to be released on Sprint this Friday

HTC One max Best Buy preorder

When the HTC One max was officially announced about one month ago (finally), we were missing on very critical piece of information: when the device would be released! Luckily, Best Buy seems to have jumped the gun and is now taking pre-orders for the phone, with an expected released date of this Friday, November 15. Best Buy has it priced at $250 with a two-year contract and a whopping $750 off contract.

To recap, the HTC One max features a huge 5.9-inch 1080p HD screen, a fingerprint scanner, a 3300 mAh battery, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB RAM, and more. The device will also ship with HTC Sense 5.5.  The fingerprint scanner will actually allow users to unlock the screen and quickly launch three different applications according to how you “map” three different fingers.

We’re still waiting on official availability announcements from other carriers, but if Sprint is any indication, this should be sooner rather than later.

      Or you could buy the Nexus 5 on the Google Play Store. If you do that, you get the option of buying the 32GB variant, which Sprint isn’t offering.

      Even the 32GB version is $50 less than the off contract price of the 16GB version offered by Sprint. I’d look at the LG G2, too.

          A true HTC appreciator, thank you, sense 5 is amazing, and I can’t wait to get it soon my HTC Evo 4G LTE. Which mind you is almost as fast and smooth as my cousin’s amazing HTC One.

          Really? I used to be like that, too, but stock Android is just a lot nicer. Sense introduces too many bugs for me whenever an OTA update comes through…

    Or for $50 less you could get the Note 3 with a more powerful processor, more RAM, pen digitizer (stylus), and a better camera. I do like Sense better than TouchWiz but HTC is just getting lazy. And still no removable battery or memory. Tisk tisk, the bell tolls for you HTC and you don’t have many more quarters of life left in you. Bankruptcy isn’t far off…

      I’ve always said that if you are going to make a battery non-removable at least make it BIG. HTC finally got a clue. As it stands…I’m a bit more interested in the LG G2 than I am the Nexus 5. Go big (with the battery) or go home!

        While the Nexus 5 has a disappointingly smaller battery, and no SD slot, performance has been Great.
        Currently at 60% at 13 1/2 hours on battery.
        22.3G available after loading most of my “traveling” music collection and 32 music videos.
