HTC are holding a press event next week in New York, and it looking increasingly likely that the Taiwanese company will be launching its latest large scale “Phablet” smartphone, something to Rival the Samsung Galaxy Not 4.
Apparently HTC’s new big boy handset will be called the HTC One M8 Max and if leaked specifications form Chinese website My Drivers are true, the handset could really be after the Galaxy Note’s crown as top Smartphone/Tablet hybrid.
The report states that the HTCV One M8 Max will come with a 5.5-inch 2K QHD display and will be running off a 2.7MHz Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor which has a hefty 3GB of RAM. It’ll also come with a 3,000mAh battery and most importantly a massive 18-megapixel rear-facing camera with OIS.
Software wise its states that the M8 Max will come with the next generation of the Android OS, in the form of Android L but with HTC’s excellent HTC Sense 6.5 software working with it. Now it’s not the biggest assumption to say that the leaked specs are real, as this time last year HTC announced the original HTC One Max handsets, and with the One M8 being this year’s flagship Android running phone form HTC, the logical upgrade is the HTC One M8 Max.
The outside of the handset is aluminium plus a silicon carbide ceramic alloy all adding to allure of the handset.
However, as the names stack up we expect HTC to go with a much simpler moniker, for when the phone Is revealed.
HTC revealed the One Max around this time last year, and a successor to the handset has previously leaked with similar specs under the moniker of the HTC One M8 Prime.
The Taiwanese phone maker is holding a press conference in New York next week, where the new phablet could debut, although the focal point of this event is believed to be a camera accessory.
