There's little left to say about the HTC One Max - it's a device that's been leaked more than almost any other smartphone this year. But here in the days before the actual final reveal, we can move down the list with every little bit and piece we've been tipped to know. This begins with the most recent leak of the device internationally with a press render of the European version, complete with fingerprint scanner.
The next phablet from HTC will be the HTC One Max. A few days ago, we mentioned that the Global Certification Form had approved the device meaning launch was imminent. We didn't know at the time was a firm date for when the smartphone will be unveiled. That firm launch date has now been tipped.
Showing up this week in the approval bin for the Global Certification Forum is none other than the mysterious HTC One Max, a device that's about to be unveiled on a global scale with a look rather similar to that of the original HTC One. While HTC has not unveiled the device itself in full detail (or indeed confirmed that it exists at all), the large handset has appeared in leaks and rumors for several weeks. Inside this competitor for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is a brain that looks to essentially replicate that of its smaller predecessors.
We're big fans of leaked smartphone photographs around here and today a new leak has surfaced showing off an unannounced HTC smartphone. The photographs aren't of the complete device itself, but rather the photos are of the front panel for the HTC Butterfly 2. The original HTC Butterfly launched last year and sold as the Droid DNA in the US.
The HTC One Max has cropped up in a myriad of leaks, with things ranging from user interface to design to hardware and back all being leaked in an assortment of speculations. Now word has surfaced via Chinese website ePrice that the handset will be unveiled on October 17th, leaving us with a bit over two weeks of waiting before the official details are dished out.
HTC handed out special versions of its flagship smartphone the HTC One to developers called surprisingly enough the HTC One Developer Edition. Developers who happen to own one of those handsets now have a new version of Android to download and try out. HTC has announced that the One Developer Edition can now run the Android 4.3 update.
The HTC One Max has appeared in a smorgasbord of leaks, so much so that there's not much about it that hasn't been covered in some way or the other. In the latest leak, a tester rooted the handset and offered up a couple screenshots showing an updated camera user interface, in doing so confirming a couple of the anticipated photography features.
Recent rumors are suggesting that HTC is working on an updated model of the One smartphone. And just to clarify, we are not talking about the often rumored HTC One Max, but another variant of the HTC One. According to the details, HTC is working on a new model One with an octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM.
There's little that isn't known about the upcoming device called HTC One Max, with a variety of up-close photos, specification lists, and this week even a set of camera samples pushed to the web by play-testers. What's interesting about this particular machine isn't it's basic specifications - they're set to essentially replicate those of the HTC One save a larger area for the 1080 x 1920 pixels to spread up front - it's the back side of this beast we're interested in.
