Jelly Bean 4.3 sporting HTC One Max images appear online!
The One Max is looking like a bigger brother to the HTC One smartphone that will pit its wits against Samsung’s Note range of smartphones and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra when that launches. The One Max is said to sport a 5.9-inch 1080p display and a HTC One-trumping 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor.
Taiwanese tech site ePrice has released some alleged new images of the ‘phablet’ smartphone today and they have seemingly confirmed some of the specs that have already been suggested for the handset.
The phone, which is codenamed the T6, looks very similar to the One handset and will likely carry the same unibody aluminium design and slim feel. The images show that the Max will sport the same front facing ‘BoomSound’ speakers too, for sharing music.
The images also reveal that the Max is being run on the latest version of the Android OS, version 4.3 Jelly Bean, which was recently announced by Google. Inside the One Max is 2GB RAM and 16GB of memory and it also has a micro SD memory card expansion slot so you will be able to expand on the 16GB internal. There is also a camera with HTC’s UltraPixel sensor, support for optical anti-shake and a 2.1 Megapixel front camera.
Also not clear is whether the HTC One Max will come with – perhaps a stylus like many of the other large screen devices?
We love the competition in the larger screen market of phones and welcome more handsets in the vein of the excellent HTC One smartphone as it’s one of our favourites handsets of the year. Plus, bigger equals better, right?
We are all expecting the handset to make an appearance at the Berlin IFA event in September where the HTC One Max may be encountering some strong competition from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the rumoured Nokia phablet device.
