Rumors about the HTC Verizon model had been around for quite some time now and as usual the most effective proof of its existence by way of a photograph has been uploaded by none other than EVleaks. They have not only posted the Verizon variant but also an AT&T variant which is a surprise, for this had not been talked about till now.
Looking at the images, the thing that comes to notice right away in both the versions of the One Max is the replacement of the HTC logo by the individual logo of the carrier’s retailing the set. In between the back and home button you would find the HTC logo in case of the HTC One line of smartphone devices. Not so with the One Max where one would instead be greeted with the individual logo of the carrier concerned. Verizon has always been known for their keenness to stamp their logo in every conceivable space on the device though AT&T has also followed suit this time. What is even more surprising is the manner in which the company logo has been replaced with that of the carrier this time with the One Max.
For specification the HTC One Max shares a lot of similarity with its other stable mates in the ‘One’ range, namely the HTC One and One Mini. To begin with, the One Max is powered by the Snapdragon 600 chip and comes with 2 GB of RAM. The screen is of 1080p resolution while measuring 6 inch when measured diagonally. The speakers are front facing and the metal shell which the main device is packed in gives it a sealed up effect.
However, the real surprise lurks along the rear where the case holds the fingerprint sensor located just beneath the 4 ‘Ultrapixel’ camera. There also is a microSD card slot which gives additional storage capacity to up to 32 GB though for reaching to it, the rear cover needs to be popped out.. The battery is rated at 3300 mAh and not removable. The OS is Android 4.3 with the latest Sense 5.5 running over it.
While there has been no official confirmation from AT&T for their HTC model, Verizon and Sprint have confirmed the same. We can be sure of the sets being available by end October for other regions while American carriers may come out with their versions a bit later.
