The HTC One Max is HTC’s biggest non-secret at this stage with so many leaks appearing about the device and now carrier China Mobile has leaked the specs on Chinese social media site Weibo.

Listing the device as the HTC 8088, it could of course be an Asian variant, but spec wise, it matches up with previously rumoured specs. The China Mobile listing says it will come with a 5.9″ FUll HD 1920×1080 resolution display, 1.7GHz CPU, 2GB RAM, 5MP Ultra-Pixel camera, 16GB on-board storage, WiFi, Bluetooth and all powered by a 3,300mAh battery.

The type of CPU is still undetermined, with some saying it will be the Snapdragon S4 Pro, while others a Snapdragon 600. With what is sure to be billed as a semi-successor to their current flagship device the HTC One, it would be surprising to have the phone launch with a slightly older – albeit fully effective – Snapdragon S4 Pro.

Software wise the HTC One will be running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean but as to which version of Sense the One Max will be released with is unknown. The recently leaked HTC Zara was said to be coming with Android 4.3 with Sense 5.5 overlaid but this could not be the case with the HTC One Max.

As seen in the title shot, there have also been some pretty pictures of the device leaked online – no test cases for HTC obviously – which show off the larger HTC One design still sporting the square blank that many consider to be where a fingerprint scanner would be placed. Interestingly the back of the device also shows some raised areas that appear to be pogo pins, indicating a dock could be on the cards as well.

The HTC One Max is said to be launching in October with a fairly hefty US$800 price tag. We look forward to seeing exactly what HTC can do in the Phablet range and will let you know as soon as HTC announce something officially.

Does it have the blue tick????


As a small tablet this will be a top 4 device. Sony’s Ultra ( 6.44″ ), the Acer Liquid S2 (6.1″ ) and the Note 3 ( 5.7″ ) being the other contenders in my opinion. There are a number of parameters that should be considered when ‘those in the know’ tell us that this device or that, is a phone or a tablet. Why add a third category with a ridiculous sounding name ‘phablet’. Original rumours suggested the One Max would only be 3mm taller than the One with thinner bezels with a much higher screen percentage/ratio. How wrong… Read more »

I wonder how much it will weigh? The SGS3 in my hand feels like a feather compared to the HTC One. I would imagine this would be unbearable in some positions.

With all due respect, aluminium weighs more than plastic which would explain why your SGS3 feels like a feather. It is a bit like comparing apples with oranges, don’t you think ?

Gregory Williams

Can’t tell if bad troll or stupid? First I asked how much it would weigh, i.e I want to know how much the device would weigh. Following me so far? Second I compared the weight of the SGS3 to the HTC One, insinuating the SGS3 is very comfortable to hold compared to the weight of the HTC One build. Then, to finish, I came to the conclusion that the Max would be impractical in some holding positions. I don’t know how in the world you, or anyone, with a normal thought process, could come to the assumption that I don’t… Read more »

I wonder why people cannot have a discussion without being insulting. I did say “with all due respect”. As for your assertion that you don’t know the difference between Plastic and Aluminium, I never said you didn’t. But you DID compare the weight of the SGS3 to the HTC One. And that is what I commented on. The rest of your post was true to the point of not needing a reply, so I didn’t reply. Maybe the first part of your reply applies to you more than me or any other regular Ausdroiders (at least we contribute to discussions… Read more »

So much irony my head epxloded!!!

but iphone 5 is also aluminium but weighs lot less 😮


I wonder if all the manufacturers are just going to big.. I can hold a galaxy note 2 in my hand no problem. But anything bigger than that and it just feels silly. I was talking to a Sony rep yesterday and I played with the Xperia Ultra and Xperia z1 and the ultra is just way to big. I don’t see it being practical at all. maybe HTC have found the Limit? But I don’t really like holding the One so I doubt the max will feel better. Xperia Z1 feels and looks awesome though (just had to add… Read more »


$800 USD price tag. Ouch. With current exchange rates and the Australia Tax, this HTC will likely be over $1,000 AUD.

Sujay Vilash

Agreed. Hardly worth the effort. I paid $765 for my HTC One M7 so I am not likely to fork out $1K+ for the Max. Mega fail by HTC.


That price difference for a bigger phone isnt that bad. If I remember right the One in the US outright was ~$650 on launch. So it should be in the $900-1000 range for the Max here.

It should hopefully be competition for the note but I think the volume will be slightly larger as most people find the limit to be the note.

16gb storage and the possibility of the s600 is a bit of a dealbreaker though.
