Call it drawback of the way the world of consumer electronics has evolved thanks to numerous leaks left right and center, but it was one of the worst kept secrets that HTC was working on a Phablet device in the same body design as that of the vastly popular and highly appreciated HTC One. We had seen several images of the device in the wild, so it was high time all those rumors were confirmed.
Indeed, the day has come when the HTC One Max, a Phablet device with 5.9 Inch display is officially announced. The display is a True HD one with resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels. The device will be powered by a 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor which is a bit of a bummer as most would have expected the Snapdragon 800 on the device. There is Sense 5.5 on board of the device which brings a more customizable Blinkfeed with integration for Google+ and Instagram.
The back of the device also has a finger print scanner and the same Ultra Pixel camera as the HTC One. Rest of the construction of the device is exactly the same as the HTC One. There are dual speakers on the front of the device and a unibody Aluminum body construction. The device also brings IR sensor just like its younger brother.
The device is expected to be in the market around middle of October, though there has not been any word on the pricing of the phone.
