HTC Officially Announces the One Max
Big screen lovers would rejoice today, since HTC has finally released its first phablet model ever, the One Max. Clad in a nice aluminum body, the phone fits nicely alongside two other members of the family, the original One and the smaller One Mini. With the One Max, HTC finally gets most of the smartphone niches covered.
Thankfully, it doesn’t have a unibody design, so users can easily slide in a microSD card and pry the battery cover off. However, the 3300mAh battery is a sealed unit and users won’t have an easy way to replace it by themselves.
At the front, there are impressive BoomSound speakers, while the square fingerprint scanner allows users to unlock the device. It can store three additional fingerprint patterns to immediately open three favorite apps, which is a quite svelte concept.
As expected, the device is equipped with the slower 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor. Granted, it isn’t the more powerful Snapdragon 800, but it has enough oomph to run anything users at it. One big attraction of the device is without doubt, the 5.9-inch Super LCD3 display with looks quite vibrant. The 1080p full HD resolution brings the pixel density count to 367ppi, higher than Apple’s latest Retina Display implementation on the new iPhone 5S.
