HTC One Max Phablet Is Officially Revealed
Posted: October 15, 2013 by Emily Brown
HTC has revealed its latest smartphone, HTC One Max that entered the phablet territory at almost 6 inches, joining the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z Ultra.
While the phones continue to exceed the standard for regular sized pockets, the device keeps the sleek aluminum case design of its smaller predecessor, along with the rather dicey Ultrapixel camera.
The mammoth HTC One Max comes with exactly a 5.9-inch 1080p display and other key features, i.e., an oddly placed fingerprint scanner on the back and expansible memory.
The fingerprint sensor comes with some cool tricks up its sleeve like the possibility to be programmed for up to three unique fingers which can launch to three different apps with no need to unlock or even land the home screen. We have to admit this is a twist regarding Apple's iPhone 5s that uses its fingerprint scanner in replacement of a passcode, and for authorizing purchases made via the iTunes and App Stores.
As for its "stretchable" memory, there is 16GB or 32GB built-in, and also the option to remove the rear cover and place a micro SD card for up to 64GB more. HTC One Max's other specs include a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor and an infrared blaster.
The device is slated to launch in Europe and Asia in October, while it'll come to the United States in early November.
