HTC One Max could be unveiled next month

The last rumors claim we'll see the new phablet on October 17, but with a Snapdragon S4 instead of the Snapdragon 800 expected to power the handset.

The HTC One Max was expected to arrive at IFA 2013 but interest in the device went down since then as rumors of its unveiling proved to be wrong. A new leak shows that HTC's upcoming phablet will arrive next month with slightly different specs than expected.

According to the latest tips, the HTC One Max phablet will feature a 1.7 GHz Snapdragon S4, while previous rumors suggested a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800. The remaining features are not expected to change, so the handset will probably feature a large 5.9-inch Full HD display, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of ROM and a fingerprint sensor.

The rumors claim that HTC One Max will be officially unveiled on October 17 or around that date, while its price will be around $810. Unfortunately, there is no word yet on its availability on the market.

The most probable reason for HTC to hold off the Max One's release could be Google's Android KitKat, which is expected to be unveiled on October 14. This way, announcing the HTC Max One as one of the first new devices to launch with Android 4.4 KitKat preloaded could help HTC easily gain a lot of exposure.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
