Although it’s not confirmed, but several online reports coming in from China speculates that the HTC is gearing up for the launch of much talked phablet HTC One Max on 15th October next month in the Chinese markets.

HTC One Max

It has already been a long time since we first heard about One Max, and since Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and LG G2 are already announced globally, everyone’s eyes are now targeting at HTC One Max which was earlier rumored to be launched at the end of September.

Touted as the competitor of Galaxy Note 3, LG G2 and Xperia Z Ultra, the HTC One Max will be the first phone from HTC to pack a display bigger than 5-inches. We know a lot about the specification of the phone as it appeared many times in multiple leaks, but to remind, HTC One Max is reported to pack 5.9-inch (0.2-inch larger than Galaxy Note 3) full HD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/ 32GB of storage, 3300 mAh battery and latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

Some reports also suggested that HTC was initially inclined to use latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chips in One max, but it unfortunately failed to secure sufficient chips. It’s now certain the company will use Snapdragon S4 Pro processor (which is slightly older) in HTC One Max.

There is no word on the report from the company, but HTC is expected to come forward soon to reveal its One Max launch plans. We”ll no be surprised if we see it sending invitations to the tech press for the launch event in coming weeks.
