The big version of HTC’s famous aluminum One handset is no secret. Leak upon leak has piled up over the past few weeks, and now we’re seeing what appears to be final specs. The big news? The One Max might come with a quad-core Snapdragon 600 chip, the same used in HTC’s One. Samsung’s Galaxy Note III, which sports a Snapdragon 800 processor, might be ecstatic to hear that.
According to the specs provided by nowhereelse.fr, the device will sport a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 chip, 5.9-inch Full HD display, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.3 and weigh in at just 130 grams. The Max essentially sounds like a blown up HTC One, almost spec for spec, which came out at the beginning of this year. One major difference, however, is the arrival of Sense 5.5, which unofficially made an appearance just yesterday.
Other supposed specs include 16, 32 and 64GB options, Bluetooth 4.0, Beats Audio and GSM, WCDMA, HSDPA42 and HSUPA 5.76 support. Not mentioned is battery size and camera, though previous rumors claimed the device would sport a 3,200mAh battery.
Now that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 is coming to market, it’s likely HTC won’t wait too much longer to unveil its phablet hero. Just this week HTC teased a One Max event, with a probable launch set for Oct. 15. That’s less than a week away, so we’ll find out soon enough.
