Like Samsung released variants of Galaxy S4, HTC is also working on building the HTC One brand. The HTC One Mini’s launch is just around the corner. Another device up in the sleeve of HTC is the powerful version of the HTC One i.e. HTC One Max. The said phone is going to be larger than the original HTC One.
The HTC One which was launched in April is undoubtedly one of the best phones of the year and even it is one of the best smartphones ever made. The HTC One Max is also going to be announced officially as the flagship device. The HTC One Max is also called the HTC T6. It is going to compete against the Galaxy Note 3. Both are going to be released at the same time. The HTC One Max should be launch appropriately. Galaxy Note series phones are immensely popular. If the launching is delayed, the Galaxy Note 3 can completely affect the sales of HTC One Max.
The HTC One Max is going to don a 5.9 inches full HD display with 1080p resolution. It is going to be powered with a quad-core CPU which can be the Snapdragon 800 CPU. It will also come with a powerful camera with HTC’s Ultrapixel camera technology. It will sport a metal body like the one present on the original HTC.
Whether it is going to come with a stylus, we are not sure. Whether it is going to come with the newest version of Android i.e. 5.0 Key Lime Pie, we are not sure. The Android 5.0 is not likely to be seen before November. So, it might as well have Android 4.3 Jelly Bean which will be rolled in the coming week.
Before HTC One came out in the market, HTC devices were not offered by major carriers. HTC One first arrived on AT&T and then it came to other carriers like Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon in the summer. Consider that it is a phablet device; many carriers will not be interested in selling right away. Also, it is going to pit against Galaxy Note 3, this can be also one reason why carriers won’t be selling the device.
As far as the price is concerned, the down payment offered by major carriers won’t be less than $250. This is going to be same with Galaxy Note 3 which will be available for $299.99. If the stylus is not available on the device, the cost of the device will be less.
Surely, the HTC One Max is going to be a powerful device but the buyers should be considerate before they make a decision on buying it. HTC is surely a quite popular brand but it is yet to show that it can provide extended support to its devices. For instance, both HTC Desire HD and Driod Incredible 2 were provided with failed software as update, the Sense 5 update was also not available readily for the HTC One S users and the HTC Rezound which came out with decent specs was not provided proper support.
