The HTC One max has been rumoured to feature a 5.9-inch full-HD display with 1080x1920 pixels resolution, 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM and Wi-Fi. The device is expected to sport a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera and an UltraPixel camera at the back, which was first introduced with the HTC One. Some reports had suggested that the device would run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with HTC's Sense 5.5 UI on top.
Additionally, purported images of HTC One max dual-SIM with fingerprint scanner had also appeared on the Web. The images revealed that the alleged phablet from the Taiwanese device maker would also come in dual-SIM variant and feature a fingerprint scanner.
With the launch of the HTC One max, the company will join the phablet race with Samsung and Sony which already offer the Galaxy Mega 6.3 featuring a 6.3-inch display and Xperia Z Ultra sporting a 6.4-inch display.
