HTC One Max Press Renders Arrives

htc one max

According to famed leaker @evleaks, you are looking at a non-final press render of the HTC T6, better know as the HTC One Max. Since it’s a press render sitting by itself, it doesn’t exactly show us how big this allegedly 5.9-inch device will be, but since we have seen comparison photos of the mega-phone lying next to others, it does somehow give off the impressions that it will be huge. Maybe even massive. Too big? For some. 

No official word has dropped from HTC on when the One Max will arrive, but current rumors suggest that a September unveiling could be in store. For those not familiar, we are looking at what could be a 5.9-inch phone (not tablet), with a Snapdragon 800 processor, UltraPixel camera, BoomSound, and all of the other goodies used in the original One. I think the most important piece to this phone’s success is whether or not HTC has a vision for making this into more than just a blown up One. We need phone-tablet hybrid specific features, like Samsung has done with its popular Note series.

I remember asking last year if 5.5-inch phones were too big. What about this year’s trend which appears to be taking that number and laughing as we approach 6-inches?

    I quit working at shoprite and now I make $35h – $80h…how? I’m working online! My work didn’t exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn’t be happier. Heres what I do, http://www.Pro67.com

    why can’t one company produce a 5″ phone, snapdragon 800 Quad, awesome camera, front speakers and a massive battery. A lot of these phones are almost there, but are lacking one or two of these.

  • KleenDroid

    I think they should have spent their time getting the HTC One released on Verizon before all the other phones gobble up all the sales.

    • jose

      It’s evident HTC has no control over that. Who knows what the hell Verizon is thinking.

  • WAldenIV

    Random guy: That’s a big phone.
    Bane: For you.

  • fauxshizzl

    Going from the GNex to the DNA even felt like a big jump. I don’t think I could comfortably carry around anything bigger than that. Although I have to admit it is fun to watch my iDevice using friends use my phone. They are just blown away by the screen and its size.

  • Such

    That screen is gonna be insane! Not going to lie I was pretty much set on the note 3 but I might have to take a look at this if Verizon gets it. I’m just glad to see we have choices in screen sizes.

    Hello,
    There Long Fellow

  • Mark Schleupner

    Where’s the Beats Audio logo on the back bottom? Please tell me this has Beats!

  • rawson815

    Paranoid android is the only ROM that will do this phone right so count me out if you can’t unlock the bootloader

    • Blue Sun

      That or CM & I would be happy. You know HTC won’t support this device 9 months from release.

      • El_Big_CHRIS

        I’d imagine it’d be sooner than that. I bet by Jan they’d move on to the next batch of ‘only one phone’ and release like 5 variants and forget it, like the DNA.

    Would the Dual-sim w/ expandable storage HTC One work on AT&T or TMobile? just wondering. http://gadgets.ndtv.com/mobiles/news/htc-one-dual-sim-now-up-for-pre-orders-at-rs-46495-404532

    Moto will launch Moto X”L” and everyone suddenly will love large phones.

    • Big_EZ

      I would love that. They just need to add a bigger screen with 1080p, bigger battery, and a microSD slot. I’m dreaming though.

      • Tyler Durden

        Yep. Cause 720p on the Note 2 was ugly.

        • Big_EZ

          I wouldn’t say ugly at all, but the GS4 and HTC ONEs display look amazing. I think 4.7″ and smaller are perfect with 720p, but these 5″+ phones need 1080p from now on.

          • Tyler Durden

            The GS3 looked like 1080p when next to the Note 2. It was nice but definitely not crisp.

  • anon

    Ditch the low res camera and i would think about this phone.

  • Godzilla

    :)

    • Big_EZ

      Hey look it has “Boom Sound”

      • michael arazan

        Crank up the RUN-DMC & NWA

    • Big_EZ

      Hey look it has “Boom Sound”

  • The. Great. Cornholio!

    Can HTC survive on only the One, Mini, and Max?

    • Godzilla

      no, see my comment below

  • MichaelFranz

    you know the whole large phone thing doesnt bother me to much. The main thing for me is pocketability. if it can fit in my pocket and not jab me in the hip or the nuts i’m cool with it

    • Godzilla

      Exactly this. My S4 is the perfect size but it is pushing the pocket size.

      5 inch screen is perfect in my opinion.

      • MichaelFranz

        funny how just 2 years ago we were all saying 4.3 inches was perfect. God use nerds are becoming like picky women when it comes to size mattering :)

        • Godzilla

          True, however back then phones had a lot of bezel.

      • Big_EZ

        My Note 2 fits in the change pocket inside my pocket. I think a 6″ phone would fit comfortably in my pocket, but not so much in my hand.

      • hkklife

        I hate to say it, but the S4 is just a perfect size. I really wish it had soft-touch but it (as well as the S4 Active) just fitS my hand so well. It is still the best example of making a 5″ phone feel manageable. In fact, I find the S4 a lot easier to manage one-handed than the DNA but it’ll be interesting to see how the G2 stacks up.

    • Weber

      You keep your nuts in a weird spot if that happens with any phone.

      • MichaelFranz

        depend on how they hang low and wobble to the flow :)

        • Weber

          Longest conversation I’ve had about another guy’s nuts.
          Welcome to the interwebz.
          Time for me to take a break.

          • MichaelFranz

            HA!

    • michael arazan

      I’d be more concerned about it Microwaving My Nuts

  • Godzilla

    Only a matter of time until HTC is purchased by LG or Samsung. I was just reading about their financial status and its not good at all.

  • http://thebeeobee.com/ thebeeobee

    They need to cancel this phone and release an HTC Flyer with these specs. Oh, and this time, include the stylus.

    • fauxshizzl

      Still blows my mind they touted the stylus as the main selling feature of that tablet and then charged an extra $80 for it. Seems now a lot of manufacturers are doing the same thing with keyboards. MS Surface anyone? Not one advert without that attached to it in the picture, but costs an absurd amount to buy with it.

      • hkklife

        The Flyer/Evo View,along with the TBolt, is still one of the primary reasons HTC remains on my s***list to this very day. I paid big bucks for the View in 2011 and it could have been THE small tablet to have in the pre-Nexus 7 days but HTC totally abandoned all of their tablet customers. At least I wasn’t one of the suckers who fell for the Jetstream!

    • chaoslimits

      I have big hands (6′-2″) and even my GNex is sometimes too large for me. O_O

      • Big_EZ

        I’m 6’2″ as well and the Note 2 fits fine in my hand.

        • Tony G.

          i’m 5’11 and the GS4 is starting to feel very small

          • Tony G.

            to the person who downvoted, i will hunt you down and tickle you

          • El_Big_CHRIS

            Tread lightly. (it wasn’t me, but I couldn’t resist)

          • Tony G.

            final scene of last nights episode….legendary.

        • michael arazan

          I’m 6’2 and my GNex is tiny in my hands.I’d like something the size of the N7 screen size, if it had no bezel and was edge to edge.

          Wonder if the One max will be louder if it comes with bigger speakers

      • KleenDroid

        Now thats embarrassing.
