It’s Official: HTC Officially Unveils The One Max- specs, features, and availability +Video

share on:

it’s been leaked a couple of times in the past, but early this morning HTC finally took the rather large wraps off the One max. The new phone is essentially a supersized version of the HTC One stretched out to a massive 5.9 inches. HTC hasn’t been sitting on its hands for the last few months: the One max (little “m”) also includes an oh-so-trendy fingerprint scanner beneath the camera.

From a hardware perspective, the One max and the older One have quite a lot in common indeed. The same 1.7Ghz Snapdragon 600 processor (not the faster 800 that some were surely hoping for), same 2GB of RAM, same 4 “ultrapixel” camera, now minus optical stabilization. The screen is 1080p, stretching out the same resolution to a larger LCD panel. One important difference is that the rear panel is now removable, allowing the user to expand the built-in storage (16 or 32GB, depending on model) with a MicroSD card. This is something that a vocal subset of users has been begging for. Unfortunately you can’t swap out the battery, so 3300mAh will have to do.

Design remains consistent with the One family, with the notable addition of the fingerprint scanner sitting in the same finger-friendly location as the hardware controls on the LG G2. The power button has been shifted to the side, but the IR port and “Boomsound” speakers remain in place. The software is HTC’s improved Sense 5.5 over Android 4.3, including improvements to the Zoe, Blinkfeed, and gallery apps. And of course, you’ll be able to unlock the phone with your finger, not unlike another late-breaking high-profile phone. HTC has thrown in a little more functionality with swipe-based app launches that incorporate the scanner.

FLIPCASE

HTC says that the One max will start rolling out later this month to worldwide markets which also includes Nigeria.  Considering that it’s competing directly with the Galaxy Note 3, you can expect the price to be high in the region of 120,000  Naira . HTC will also be offering the Power Flip Case, a first-party case/battery combo that packs 1150mAh of extra juice.
