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…)
Well, in case the previously leaked photos were not enough, this new set of shots showing off the upcoming One Max from HTC should pretty much confirm any suspicions we had. The One Max, will in fact, rock a fingerprint scanner. Will it be available in all markets, though? No word is coming from HTC quite yet, as the company will most likely announce the device sometime around when Samsung plans to unveil the Galaxy Note 3. Whether that is a good marketing strategy or not shall remain to be seen. (more…)
The idea of a fingerprint scanner on your phone is nothing new and you will have a hard time selling a device solely based on that – just ask the Motorola Atrix. Nevertheless, fingerprint scanners seem to be making a comeback in popularity, and today’s picture of the back of the upcoming HTC One Max shows that it might include one as well. (more…)
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. (more…)
