HTC One Max is official

Written by Fuad Abazovic



5.9-inch screen, fingertip sensor

After numerous leaks, the HTC One Max is finally out. This is more or less an HTC One on steroids, packing a 5.9-inch 1920x1080 screen in a bit larger 164.5 x 82.5 x 10.29 mm aluminium case. The HTC One Max is a 217 grams (7.65 ounce) phone but this time it has 3300mAh battery that should be enough for decent battery life.

The big new thing is that the back of the aluminium case has a fingertip sensor so HTC joins the family of iPhone users that are willing to share their fingertips with the NSA and other secret services of the world. The surprising part is the CPU is still a Snapdragon 600 at 1.7GHz which is exactly the same as the 5-inch HTC One. Many expected a Snapdragon 800 as a refreshing update.

The phone has 32GB storage and a micro SD slot with up to 64GB additional storage. The HTC Ultrapixel camera with BSI sensor is still on board, the pixel size 2.0 µm and sensor size is 1/3” and it can record full HD video. The front facing camera is a 2.1-Mpixel affair with HDR capability and should do just fine for video chatting.

Other notable features include HTC BoomSound with dual front speakers with built in amplifiers, NFC support, 4G – LTE support EMEA: 800/900/1800/2600 MHz, Asia: 900/1800/2100/2600 Mhz, Sprint: 1900 MHz and Verizon: 700 MHz. Notice that there is no more Beats Audio support as obviously this overhyped equaliser didn’t do the job for the previous HTC phones.

The general feeling that we have about this phone is that this is merely a bigger edition of the HTC One that will target the Asian market as this is the right market for oversized phones like the Galaxy Note. For example, around 40 percent of smartphones sold in South Korea are phablets, while phablets make up just 7 percent of the smartphone market in the rest of the world.

The HTC One Max looks classy with its expensive aluminium finish look and will definitely attract lovers of posh oversized phones, or phablets.
