HTC One Max bumps Android king's size up to 5.9-inches

htc-one-max.jpgYet another handset bearing the HTC One name looks set to be on its way, with today brining forth the newly leaked HTC One Max Android handset.

Captured on camera by gadget hunters ePrice, the re-worked flagship handset is said to be sporting a giant 5.9-inch display, running at a full HD 1080p resolution. That’s compared to a 4.7-inch screen of the same resolution on the original HTC One, with the HTC One Max managing a 373 ppi compared to the HTC One’s sharper 468 ppi.

For the most part, the design seems very similar to its predecessor (albeit blown up in size), but careful examination reveals a lower speaker grille and the suggestion that the bezel has been shrunk down (or, at the very least seems slimmer in comparison to the larger screen.

Other upgrades are said to include a processor boost, with the HTC One Max sporting a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor and a 3,200mAh battery. Leaking from China, the handset also features a dual-SIM slot, though the relative lack of interest in the feature worldwide makes it unlikely to carry along with any overseas release. Those facts aside though, there’s little else known about the handset. Given it’s a member of the HTC One family, we’d expect the BlinkFeed social and news aggregating homescreen to feature, as well as the Zoe camera tech.

ePrice are hinting at an IFA 2013 reveal next month in Berlin for the handset, which first broke cover as part of a leaked carrier document in the UK from O2.

No official word from HTC, of course, but we’ll keep you posted on any official details as we receive them.
