Leaked images of the HTC One Max gives us a preview of the upcoming “phablet” offering from HTC. The leaked photos were spotted on Chinese microblog, Weibo Wednesday (Sept. 18) along with the Antutu benchmark test results.
Rumors about the specs of the HTC One Max have been circulating the Web for weeks, with a recent focus on the device’s processor. Previous reports expected the HTC One Max to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor. The recent photo leak suggests that the Snapdragon 600/S4 processor will power the device instead.
Last week, leaker @evleaks initially suggested that the HTC One Max would feature a 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor. New clues obtained from the leaked photos appear to support his claim.
One of the leaked images shows the HTC One Max with a benchmark score of 26417. This is within the same performance range as the Snapdragon 600 processor found in the HTC One. GSMArena reported Wednesday (Sept. 18) that Antutu test results revealed a score of 26238 for the HTC One. This is an indication that the One Max may be running an identical processor.
The photos reveal that the HTC One Max, model number 8088 supports GSM and is visually larger than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Rumors suggest that the device has a 5.9-inch LCD display, which is .2 inches larger than the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3 display.
The One Max is expected to run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, include 2GB RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD slot and a 3,300 mAH battery. Specs such as a fingerprint scanner, wireless charging, HTC’s Ultrapixel camera, and Boomsound are additional rumored features of the HTC phablet.
As GSMArena reported Monday, the HTC One Max could be launched in October with an $800 price tag.
