HTC isn’t quite done competing with Samsung. After releasing the One to put up a very good fight with the Galaxy S4, it looks like HTC is ready to take on Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 phablet with the rumored HTC One Max.
This would be HTC’s first attempt at a phone/tablet hybrid, but now the timing seems right. The HTC One has been a pretty decent success, so why not just make a bigger one? The One Max, which is currently under the codename of HTC T6, leaked a few days ago with a bit of information. It will feature a very similar hardware design to the HTC One, which is good news. Samsung’s plastic outer shell is no match.
Talking specs, the phone will have a massive 5.9-inch display. A 2.2GHz processor will power the device as will Android Key Lime Pie. The One Max is rumored to include a stylus like the Galaxy Note 3. Whether it will serve some sort of specific purpose or just act as a mere accessory remains to be seen.
The rumored release for the One Max is some time within the second half of 2013. That falls in line with recent rumors of an HTC One Mini to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. The One Mini’s photos were leaked yesterday.
