HTC’s last attempt at a flagship phablet left us pretty dissatisfied, but it looks like the company may try again this year with a super-sized version of the One (M8). According to a new report from Chinese site MyDrivers, the One (M8) Max will offer high-end hardware and a premium design to match.
Rumors of a One (M8) Prime first started to leak out back in May, but now it looks like the company is finally getting ready to launch the new phablet. The device allegedly comes equipped with a 5.5-inch 2K display, a Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7GHz, 3GB of RAM and runs Android with HTC’s new updated Sense 6.5 software on top. The M8 Max may also feature an aluminum and ceramic design, while earlier reports claimed it could be the company’s first waterproof flagship phone.
From the looks of it the One (M8) Max will offer some seriously impressive hardware, which is exactly where last year’s One Max fell short. HTC is a bit late to the 2014 phablet party though, with Apple and Samsung already offering their own super-sized smartphones. Hopefully we’ll get an official look at the new device in the not-too-distant future, but for now we’re still treating these rumors as just that: rumors.
