We already know the HTC One Max is headed to Sprint and Verizon this year, but a new FCC filing suggests the phablet’s U.S. launch could be imminent. The Taiwanese company officially announced its super-sized flagship earlier this month, but didn’t reveal its U.S. release date or how much it would cost on-contract. Now it looks like the device could hit American shores sooner rather than later.
The One Max comes equipped with an impressive 5.9-inch 1920 x 1080-pixel display, a 1.7GHz, quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 16GB or 32GB of expandable storage, an Ultrapixel rear camera, a wide-angle front-facing camera, BoomSound front-facing speakers, a 3,300mAh battery, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0. The device also features a fingerprint reader on the back, and runs Android 4.3 with HTC’s own Sense 5.5 UI on top.
In our full review we argued that the HTC One is still a better device than its big brother, but we understand why for phablet fans this may be a must-have device. Lucky for them, it looks like it won’t be much longer before the new handset launches in the U.S.
