Rumor has it that the HTC One Max will sport a handsome 5.9-inch display with full HD resolution and Super LCD3 technology, while being equipped by Qualcomm’s flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 800 unit based on a Quad core Krait 400 clocked at 2.2 GHz. It seems that the phablet manufactured by the Taiwanese phone maker will also come with 2 GB of RAM and 32/64 GB of internal flash storage, but the drawback of having no extendable memory still persists.

The HTC one Max is expected to leave the factory gates with Android 4.3 pre-installed and with HTC’s proprietary Sense 5.5 user interface.It is rumored to have a 4MP front facing camera, just as the HTC One, with ultra pixel technology and auto-focus,2µm pixel size.

Meanwhile, some pictures showing off the HTC One Max’s About screen identify it as “HTC 8088”

The war for the king of the phablets will be very interesting to watch this year. Sony and Samsung already launched the Xperia Z Ultra and the Galaxy Note 3 and HTC’s One Max is expected to be a worthy rival to them. Which one do you think will win? We’ll have to wait and see.
