Verizon Launches HTC One Max, Priced $299.99 with Two-year Contract
Earlier today we’ve told you that a leaked photo was indicating that the HTC One Max will soon go on sale at Verizon with a price tag of $299.99.
It seems that the leak was accurate, as Big Red just launched the HTC phablet in their virtual store. As mentioned in the previous article the price of the HTC One Max is of $299.99 if you agree to sign a two-year deal with the carrier.
Alternatively, you can choose the Verizon EDGE contract, grab the HTC One Max for free, then split the fee in 24 monthly payments of $25.22 each. If you don’t want to commit to a two-year contract with Verizon, you can go month-to-moth, but pay $599.99 up front for the terminal.
Well, now that it’s confirmed that the Verizon HTC One Max costs $299.99, this make it $50 more expensive than Sprint’s variant, which has a price of $249. For the time being, Verizon and Sprint are the only US carriers to have the HTC One Max in their portfolio.
Since it would be a shame not to mention anything about the terminal’s technical specifications, hear that One Max boasts about a massive full HD 5.9-inch Super LCD3 display with 1080 x 1920 resolution and Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
The pahablet is underpinned by a Snapdragon 600 chipset with four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU, while sporting 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB storage, microSD slot (up to 64 GB supported), and a 4 MP camera with UltraPixel technology. Unlike HTC One’s 4 “UltraPixel” camera, One Max’s doesn’t come with OIS (optical image stabilization). Right below the Max’s UltraPixel camera, you will find a fingerprint sensor.
The connectivity features of the handset include HSPA+; LTE, Cat3, 50 Mbps UL, 100 Mbps DL, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, IR blaster, and microUSB 2.0. A non-removable Li-Po 3300 mAh battery is keeping the lights turned on.
The HTC One Max comes pre-loaded with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and it’s the company’s first smartphone to feature Sense 5.5 UI.
