We usually know everything about a phone before it's announced or released these days so this news isn't all that ‘new' but today the HTC One Max became official. There were various leaks leading up to this, from the chassis and screen to all of the internals, but at least now we know for sure.
The specs will include:
- 5.9″ 1080p display
- Snapdragon 600 1.7 Ghz Quadcore CPU
- 2GB RAM
- 3300 mAh battery
- 16GB or 32GB storage
- Micro SD slot
- Android 4.3 and Sense 5.5
- Ultra Pixel Camera
A new feature with this phone is the rumoured finger print scanner that you can use to lock and unlock the phone. Another feature that comes with the scanner is the ability to assign three finger prints to up to three apps so that they launch upon unlocking the phone, setting it apart slightly from Apple's version.
The camera will include a feature called ‘HTC Zoe' which takes up to 20 photos and a 3 second video and saves it all together in a memory folder allowing you to capture moments as they happen. The camera will also support dual take a picture from the front and rear facing camera at the same time.
The HTC One Max will be available in Silver by the end of October, no exact price or date have been set yet though. If your interested in the phone that came before, we did a review or the HTC One here.
KitGuru Says: HTC have been on to a winner with these newer phones, the HTC One received plenty of praise and the new Sense UI has been greatly improved. Samsung has demonstrated that there is a market for those wanting bigger phones with it's Galaxy Note line so it's about time HTC joined the fight too. Do any of you guys like larger [Ladies? Yes. Ed.] phones?
