HTC supersizes the HTC One

HTC may be in a bit of a financial mess right now, but the company is still looking to milk its "One" design language with another variant. We've already seen HTC downsize the original with the One Mini, and now the company is looking to go in the other direction with the One Max.
 
The new One Max will reportedly feature a 5.9" display while retaining the same 1080p resolution as the original HTC One. The device is supposed to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with a blazing clock speed of 2.3GHz. Not much else about the smartphone is known at this time, but it is expected to have a 3,300 mAh battery to power its high-end internals.
 
The HTC One Max is currently pegged for an official reveal next month at IFA 2013.

You're not going to challenge the Galaxy Note series as the best big phone without one.

I hope Nokia does something cool in 2014. A Pureview camera, Silvermont based SoC, stylus, and maybe even full Win8.1 would be the ultimate portable gadget.

I have the LG Optimus G pro and it is much better than Note 2.
This HTC could be interesting but I have maxed out my palm size at 5.5" I feel. Will certainly try this phone out though.

I don't use stylus which is feel is very 90s in this day and age.

I like having a stylus for note taking though. Being able to use the phone like a pad of paper would be a very nifty little feature.

little feature
Which is all it is. Most notes are only several words long mad, something most of us these days can txt out as fast as writing it. It isn't a feature used often enough to justify adding it to the design of most current phones. The few people I know with a surface pro also claim they never use the stylus but that stylus doesn't travel securely with the device.

Notes are more than just text. They can include sketches, flow diagrams, math, foreign languages, etc.

The s-pen is also good for more than just notes and art. With hover, it basically becomes a mouse. You can view the desktop version of webpages with fully functional mouseover effects. It's a dream for remote desktop.

HTC has never been a good device for me. I've tried 3 different HTC's throughout the years. I currently have the Note II and love the sht out of it. I use the hell out "90s" stylus. IMHO, I think the HTC brand is trash.

I am this close to buying a G Pro to upgrade from my Note 1, as it is almost perfect (current lack of AOSP support makes me hesitate). But the stylus on the Note really is a cool and useful feature.


Hard to tell but...

It looks like the Bezels are a bit smaller than the standard One, which is good. Looks like a great phone if you want something that big. I was personally hoping for closer to 5.5, but I will have to hold one to decide.

The Snapdragon 800 is a beast though. Wholly crap its fast.

The bezel on the One phones makes me want to throw a baby through a steel door. I don't get why it's so important to these manufacturers to have hard face buttons.
