The HTC One is getting a Max variant to add some phablet flavor to the One portfolio and it seems that someone in China jumped the gun and published the core specs. There's also a new batch of photos of the device.

The specs image advertises a 5.9" 1080p screen, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, a 1.7GHz processor (likely a Snapdragon 600 judging by the frequency), 2GB RAM, 16GB storage and a 3,300mAh battery.

The main camera of the One Max is a 4MP UltraPixel camera but it's not clear if it will have optical stabilization or not (so far only the One has it, the One mini and Butterfly S don't) and a 2.1MP front-facing camera. The back camera is accompanied by an LED flash and what is reportedly a fingerprint scanner.

The leaked HTC One Max 4G LTE comes along with dual-SIM connectivity, but this is most likely the Chinese version of the phone (which the image calls HTC 8088). The HTC One also has a dual-SIM version for China with a removable back and a microSD card slot. So the international One Max version will likely be single-SIM, it will drop the microSD card and pack more storage.

The pricing for the HTC 8088 / One Max will be set at around $800, according to the rumors, and the device is slated for an October launch.

Nah, the ultrapixel is not anywhere near dslr. It only captures more light but less overall details than the competition. Ultrapixel is a gimmick, otherwise dslrs or good digital cameras will stick with 4 to 8mp instead.

Ok so why is everyone getting bent out of shape for something that leaked out of China? Also, who says the SD600 is a bad chipset. Also, if one more person says "it should have 3GB RAM". For the last time, Samsung is the only company with t...
