Rumor: HTC to Launch ONE MAX in September
On July 18, according to German website Mobile Geeks reports that HTC will also join the ranks to build a large screen mobile phone, which will be launched in September with 6-inch 1080p screen- One Max.
One Max’s configuration will be very different from the current HTC One; it will use the 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chip, with 2GB memory and up to 64GB storage space, as well as 3200 mAh battery capacity.
Samsung Galaxy Note is the very successful series that has spawned a variety of competitive products, including LG Optimus Vu and Sony’s upcoming Xperia Z Ultra.
If really launched in September, then One Max will directly face its strong rival Galaxy Note which will be released in September also. Given that Samsung has maintained the tradition to release a new Galaxy Note on annual Consumer Electronics Show in Berlin (IFA), then Galaxy Note 3 should be unveiled in early September this year.
It is still unclear that whether One Max will support handwriting input or not. However, this function has become one of the major highlights of Samsung Galaxy Note, as well as the main feature of Sony Xperia Z Ultra. Therefore it is believed that HTC should also seek to provide such a wide range of handwriting input function. Last time when the function was provided should be traced back to 2011 on the 7-inch Flyer tablet.
