Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy Note 3 a few days ago, the smartphone enthusiasts are eagerly anticipating the launch of HTC One Max. Even though the HTC reps refused to comment about the company’s competitor for Galaxy Note 3, the proofs that confirm its existence are irrefutable.
After we’ve seen dozens of leaked photos, specs, and benchmarks of the One Max, today we get to see another batch of spy shots. We already knew that the HTC One Max will basically look like an HTC One on steroids, but the new set of photos also confirms the fingerprint sensor that was previously rumored to be integrated into the phone maker’s phablet.
The guys at Mobileleaks have found the photos on the Chinese social network Weibo and posted them on their website, adding that we might actually look either an One Max prototype of the Chinese variant of the handset. Apart from allowing us to compare Max’s size to the one of the regular HTC One and have a look at the fingerprint sensor, the leaked photos don’t reveal any new details like whether the smartphone will run Android 4.3 with Sense 5.5 out of the box.
In case you aren’t familiar with the specs rumored for the HTC One Max you might want to hear that the yet-unannounced device is expected to sport a 5.9-inch full HD LCD display, Snapdragon 800 chipset with quad-core 2.2 GHz Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, and the 4 MP UlatraPixel camera that is also mounted on the back of the HTC One flagship. Since the One Max will reportedly come with a Snapdragon 800 SoC, the smartphone might also come with 4K video recording capabilities.
The battle for the king of the phablet segment 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 competitor to them. Which one will win? We’ll have to wait and see.
