Talking tech since 2003

Big smartphones are officially in, and now just weeks after Nokia announced their first super sized smartphone we’re getting a look at what ePrice is calling the HTC One Max, a 5.9-inch variant of HTC’s popular “One” line of smartphones. Leaked photos of the device shows a device that looks expectedly similar to both the HTC One and the just released HTC One Mini, the HTC One Max is essentially a beefier, larger version of the same flagship smartphone we all know and (mostly) love, but with a few tweaks.

First, the HTC One Max keeps the HTC One’s 1080p resolution mostly in tact, simply stretching it from 4.7-inches to 5.9-inches. That means the HTC One Max will have a very noticeable degradation in pixel density, and therefor sharpness. Still, a 5.9-inch 1080p display is nothing to scoff at, though it does impose some potential issues with battery life, with HTC is reportedly combatting by including an amped up 3,300 mAh battery, up from 2,300 mAh in the original HTC One. The rest of the internals are also getting a nice little upgrade as the HTC One Max will be using a super-powerful 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 300 quad-core processor, which means that the One Max should be able to be noticeably zippier than the already zippy HTC One. 2GB of RAM will also allow you to do more at once while the 16GB of internal storage will find itself a companion in a micro-SD card slot, allowing for storage expansion as your needs grow.

Now, all of this is just rumor until HTC confirms the gritty details, however given the popularity of the large-smartphone market these days I’d wager you’ll be hearing more about this overgrown One sooner rather than later. No saying what markets this is due to be launched for – we may never see this device Stateside – nor what carriers or pricing we’ll be looking at when and if it does come. Still, it’s quite the phone to wonder about and long for, isn’t it? Let us know what you think in the comments!
