Codenamed the HTC 8088, the phablet HTC One Max is revealed once again on Chinese micro-blogging portal Weibo. The user has uploaded a few images showing different screens on the phone in Chinese and the back, front and side of the phablet.
First off, the HTC One Max fingerprint sensor on the back of the device looks exactly like the Pantech Vega LTE-A, a device released in South Korea a few weeks ago, with the same specs sheet as the LG G2.
Apart from the fingerprint sensor, the HTC One Max design looks similar to the HTC One and Mini, with the Ultrapixel sensor and single-LED, alongside the white strip on the top, bottom and sides, copying the HTC One Mini plastic sides.
The HTC One Max will have LTE and GSM support, the likelihood of this coming first to the US is pretty slim, considering Asia has been the biggest supporters of larger screen sizes like the Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z Ultra.
Software on the phone is currently an “unknown” version of Android. This means HTC is either testing out some new features making it unknown or it is early Android Jelly Bean 4.3, underneath a thick layer of Sense 5.5 UI.
The insides of the HTC One Max are still a little bit of a mystery, early reports said they would fit the powerhouse Snapdragon 800 CPU on board, but this has been countered by evleaks who claims the phone will sport the Snapdragon S4 Pro.
We believe the phone will come with a 3300mAh battery, 16GB of internal storage, Boom Sound speakers and either a 5.9 or 6.0-inch 1080p display. With the amount of leaks currently we would not be surprised to see a release in the coming weeks.
