This year we came to know that out of nowhere HTC has become one of major rivals for Samsung. The HTC One has been one of the most purchased smartphones of the year after Galaxy S4 from Samsung. Samsung is now working on the Galaxy Note 3, release date of which is expected to be unveiled in September. However, HTC has got the HTC One Max to compete with the Note 3 but the competition won’t be that fierce as most thought.
The HTC One Max release date is not going to happen in September but the phone will be unveiled in the last quarter of this year. The Galaxy Note 3 will be launched at the IFA Event which will be held on 4th of September at Berlin, Germany.
The anticipation for the HTC One Max phablet is increasing day by day. The specs of the HTC One Max seem very promising as it will sport a huge display of 5.9inches. The full HD will be powered with a 2.3GHz quad-core CPU and 2GB RAM. It will house HTC’s very own Ultrapixel camera. It will run on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and like the Galaxy Note 3, it will also come with a stylus.
HTC One Max was expected to come out alongside the Galaxy Note 3 at the IFA event. This is not going to happen. By the time HTC One Max comes out in the market in 2014, the Galaxy Note 3 may lead the phablet market. However, if the specs of the HTC One Max turns out to be better than the Note 3, surely Samsung will have to do something to stay ahead of competition from rising brands.
The HTC One as well as the HTC One Mini are plagued with battery issue. So, HTC needs to work on this area to make sure it does not disappoint its fans. Hence, the HTC One Max should come out with a battery life. According to the rumors, the HTC One Max is expected to be powered by a massive 3300mAh battery.
It has been learnt through Focus Taiwan that the CEO of HTC, Ben Ho is planning to roll out to two or three HTC Desire models in the third quarter of this year and in the last quarter a new variant of the HTC One will be announced. We feel that this new variant is surely the HTC One Max.
American actor, Robert Downey, Jr has been signed up HTC for promoting the new phablet. So, we can expect a swanky launch for the HTC One Max and it would also be interesting to see the after-launch promotional campaign. He has been signed up as the ‘Instigator of Change’ campaigner on a two year agreement for 1 billion dollars.
By releasing the Note 3 in September, Samsung will be sticking to launching almost around the same when previous flagship models were released. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is releasing almost a month or two before the rival HTC One Max. So, if HTC fails to promote its newest flagship device well, chances are that the sales of Galaxy Note 3 can affect the launch and sales of HTC One Max.
Also, by the time HTC One Max comes in the market, new models like Moto X, LG G2 and iPhone 5S will already be competing against each other. So, HTC needs to plan its strategy well. So, let us look forward for the release date of both the phablets, HTC One Max and Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
