 HTC One Max Available now
14th October 2013

The simplest way to describe the HTC One Max is that it is almost identical to the popular HTC One, but is bigger.

The One Max has stretched the display to a 5.9" 1080 x 1920 pixel panel. Inside is a 1.7GHz quad-core CPU with 2GB of RAM and 16 or 32GB of storage plus a microSD slot. On the back is a 4 megapixel "ultrapixel" camera with 1080p HD video capture, plus a 2.1 megapixel one on the front.

This is an LTE capable device with various different bands for various markets and it also supports NFC. All the usual connectivity options are here plus an MHL port for outputting to an HDMI TV, and it can also be used as an infrared controller.

One unusual feature is a fingerprint sensor. Not only can it be used to unlock the device, but it can also launch one of three applications depending on what finger you use to unlock it.

 HTC One Max Power Flip Case Arch-rivals Samsung have the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Mega range, but there's enough that is distinctive with the HTC One Max to make it stand out. The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is also an impressive competitor, but perhaps just a bit on the big side to be practical.

All the usual HTC One features are here, plus the OS has been upgraded to Android 4.3 with HTC Sense 5.5 running on the top. Inside is a 3300 mAh battery, and the One Max measures 165 x 83 x 10.3mm and weighs 217 grams. There is an optional "Power Flip Case" that adds an additional 1150 mAh auxiliary battery to the mix too.

HTC say that the One Max should start shipping from October onwards in glacial silver. No guidance was given on price, although we would estimate that the HTC One Max would retail for between €600 to €650 SIM-free.
