Chinese website ePrice has published images that purport to show the HTC One Max, along with several specs which point towards the device being a slight upgrade on the HTC One, and not just in terms of size.
Along with a 5.9-inch display, which will put the handset in the same category as the rumoured Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the smartphone is said to feature a quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset. This is a step up from the Snapdragon 600 seen on the HTC One, although how much difference the upgrade will make in everyday use remains to be seen.
According to the report, the HTC One Max will make use of the same 1080×1920 pixel resolution as the HTC One. Since these pixels will be spread across a larger area the clarity will inevitably suffer but we still have high hopes for the screen judging by the quality of that seen on the HTC One.
The specs also mention that the Chinese version of the device will feature a dual SIM setup, although we doubt that this version will be making it the UK. There aren’t any rumours about a release date yet, and certainly no confirmation from HTC, but we’ll keep you posted as more details emerge.
