WSJ Says HTC One Max Will Be Announced October 15
It is actually HTC’s effort to take on the Samsung Galaxy Note series, which is really dominating the phablet market. Like me. With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, HTC needs some competition in the oversized smartphone area, and their rumored HTC One max is exactly the device to do it. But when will it become official?
The HTC One is a great phone and all, but with a 4.7-inch display, it’s a bit on the small side for a select group of people.
I am sure that all HTC fans are looking forward to the new addition to the ‘One’ family – the HTC One Max. But when will it become official?
Now it seems we will see it within a week as Wall Street Journal is reporting that HTC will reveal the One Max on October 15, also it is their first with a fingerprint sensor.
It seems like HTC is referring to all of the previous rumors: Fingerprint scanner, huge display and the standard Boomsound front speakers. The first line especially sounds like it will have a fingerprint scanner.
HTC has sent out invitations to a few events hinting at the release of the HTC One max. This first invite for October 18 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan (6PM local time) says:
“One finger opens up a big view.
You are invited to immerse in the sound with us.”
It seems next week, we will hopefully see the next big thing by the Taiwanese manufacturer soon.
Then those in the market for a large phone will have to choose between Samsung and HTC, which won’t be hard for the fanboys.
