The One Max from HTC is by no means a small secret. The company has done a terrible job at keeping the newest addition to its One lineup hidden from us, but we won’t exactly knock them for that – we enjoy it. We first heard of this device because of the reported fingerprint scanner that it will feature on the rear, but since then, we have seen numerous peeks at the the 5.9″ device. It may or may not be launching next week, but it seems that at least one Max is already out in the wild. (more…)
Invites are flying out for separate events for the supposed announcement of the One Max from HTC. The events are scheduled to take place in Taiwan on October 18, and another one two days before that on October 16 in Hong Kong. According to e-retailer ePrice, the global launch of the One Max will take place in China on October 15, right before the company holds the press events. (more…)
Carrier partners for HTC and their should-have-been-announced-like-two-months-ago mega phone, the One Max, have managed to avoid the leak train up until this past weekend. Thanks to an Android Central Forums member, we now know that Verizon will at least be one of them here in the States. As you can see in the pictures we have included, the phone is as large as you would have expected, but also takes on a new design change that was absent with Verizon’s version of the HTC One. Yes, we’re talking about the “Verizon” logo placed front and center between the home and back buttons where HTC previously used their own logo. (more…)
Just last week, it was announced that Beats Audio would be buying back $265 million worth of stock from HTC. With the phone manufacturer still relying heavily on the Beats brand to sell devices, Beats president Luke Woods, confirmed that the supposedly upcoming One Max from HTC will still carry the audio software/drivers onboard. With the phone almost due for unveiling, it would clearly be too late to remove such a feature from the device, but it is unknown whether HTC will continue to license Beats for future devices.

We don’t know about you, but all of these leaked images of the One Max from HTC are starting to really bore us. Announce the darn phone already, HTC. There were previous reports that the One Max was going to launch side-by-side to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3, but clearly, that is no longer the case. (more…)
At this point, its no secret to us that HTC is looking to hop into the oversized device game with what we believe will be called the One Max. We have had some pretty clear images leak of the device up to this point, but nothing to really judge its large 5.9″ screen against fairly. Today’s latest leaked picture puts it (allegedly) up against the Galaxy Note 2 and Note 3 so we can get a better estimation of its size.
As you can see from the picture, the One Max is enormous, even compared to the newly announced Galaxy Note 3. It looks both taller and thicker than Samsung’s latest tablet-phone hybrid offering. How big is too big? We’re pushing Galaxy Mega size here, aren’t we?
More pictures and details for the One Max (model number 8088) from HTC hit the web over the weekend, this time bringing some of the clearest images we have seen thus far. In these shots, we get a good look at the Max’s user interface that is on the apparent 5.9″ 1080p display, along with a closeup of the pogo pins HTC placed on the backside of the phone. (more…)
Almost exactly one year ago, HTC announced its withdrawal from the American tablet market, stating that it was a “learning experience” for the manufacturer. With sales apparently somewhat dismal, there was just no money to be made when competing with Apple and Samsung. In a new plot twist, if this newly-leaked picture is to be believed, then could HTC be rethinking its stance? (more…)
