What a way to start the week off? EVLeaks earlier this morning leaked out some official looking press renders of the upcoming HTC One Max ‘phablet’ which is slated for launch later this year and set to compete directly with the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III.
The HTC One Max render leaked by EVLeaks is apparently of a non-final version of the device, but there are some slightly noticeable changes to the device’s design. The HTC One Max seems to have a more conspicuous plastic rim around the edges, similar to the one found on the HTC One Mini, there’s also the obvious addition of a larger display. On the rear of the One Max you’ll see the camera’s flash has had a change of position, but other than that, it appears to follow HTC’s new design language. The HTC One Max has been rumoured to pack a speedy Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC and a larger battery alongside HTC’s new UltraPixel cameras and their Sense 5 UI.
An exact date on which the HTC One Max will launch is yet to be revealed, but rumours suggest that HTC will launch the HTC One Max on September 5 at IFA 2013 in Berlin, Germany, just a day after the Samsung Galaxy Note III is set to be unveiled.
