We’ve been seeing tons of leaks about the HTC One max for quite a while now that the only thing left to do is wait for the proper announcement. Now that it has been officially unveiled, let’s find out what it has to offer by taking a look at the spec sheet below.

As you can see, the HTC One max is almost similar to the HTC One in terms of design and hardware. Aside from having a larger display, the One max has a removable back cover to let you access the SIM and microSD slots, and of course, the fingerprint scanner.

The HTC One max is a really gorgeous device but we’re wondering how it plans to break through the standards set by the Snapdragon 800-powered Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

As for information about pricing and international availability, these are yet to be announced.

    horrible specs

    • gary says:

      OA ka naman.. bakit naman horrible?

    • kim says:

      @gary hindi yan OA Bro, reality yan. mahihirapang makipag compete ang HTC One Max sa mundo ng android if specs are way too behind compare sa other major brands. kahit nga ang htc one despite of being an impressive and most high rated smartphone upon its arrival still not too much to compete with other brands eh mas lalo natong htc one max an early 2013 specs will be released late 2013? sa mundo sila ng android nakikipag kompetensiya kaya need ang most updated specs

    • kim says:

      @gary btw rin pala kung mas mababa ang price nito compare sa newest android phone released sept-oct 2013 well hindi na katakot takot to pero if they were planning to compete this one with the s800 devices then DISASTER!

    • wew says:

      @kim mejo may kababaan nga ang specs nito pero ang htc one naman ay tama lang…di lang cguro ganun karami ang bumibili kasi di ganun kalakas magadvertsie ang HTC lalo na dito sa pilipinas, d tulad ng samsung na naglalaunch ng tv commercials

    • kim says:

      @wew ang standing ni one max ngayon IF THE PRICE IS RIGHT, well may pag-asa but if price is head to head with note 3 / lg g2 / xperia z1 alike malamang walang wala tong si one max. the fact na sa mundo ng android palamangan ng specs ang isang panglaban dahil kung hindi walang success mararamdam sila.

    • wew says:

      yeah agree ako sayo

  2. paoo says:

    it would be better if they put Soc 800 instead of 600. How can they compete with Note 3 without good powerhouse.

  3. abuzalzal says:

    This is D.O.A. unless kaya ng HTC na ibaba yung presyo by a significant margin kumpara sa Snapdragon800 devices (never gonna happen of course)

    And one more thing, the ultra-lame 4 MP Ultrapixel has received harsh jabs from tech critiques and various review sites alike, ewan ko kung ano naisipan nila at sinama pa rin dito sa MAX

    Tough, tough sell HTC, pray na lang kayo ng taimtim sa mga Taiwanese gods para magka-milagro….

  4. BTX says:

    HTC…another company on the brink of extinction.
    Hope they learn their lesson before it’s too late.

    • abuzalzal says:

      1. They never learn their lesson
      2. It’s too little, too late

    • red says:

      there is one company na nag survived with super outdated phone “SONY”
      remember there 2012 lineup full of dual core
      but they did sell 8.1M on Q3 2012.

      kulang ang HTC sa something fresh, parang pinalaking HTC one lng yung, compare sa pinalaking Xperia Z, ung Z ultra naman is the slimmest and first S800 equip chipset

    • prosalsal says:

      Mali ka red. Ang nagsurvive na antigo ang kanilang hardware ay apple iphone.

    • wew says:

      @prosalsal its because they are iOS

  5. Zobel says:

    Should have been named HTC One tit (throwing in towel.)

  6. yeah says:

    What the?!!!!!
    At-least they used Snapdragon 800.
    If they will price this lower than S4 then I will consider this.

    • ohh says:

      i agree with you, LG G2 on the other hand is using snapdragon 800 and they provide better and new features than HTC

  7. Pensonic says:

    Is there a huge difference ba sa performance between Snapdragon 600 & 800?

  8. wuyuepak says:

    Kapag ito pumalo ng 23-25k, which I doubt, pwede na guys lol

  9. spooky says:

    A cellphone is just a cellphone. But I will agree with you people that this htc is way too overpriced for the mediocre specs and build as compared to current offerings. Besides the untreated aluminum case is cheap. Just a cheap soda can like the untreated aluminum in apple that brings @+*#!;:*# to those who find rust all over their device. It should at least be carbon fiber, not some cheap material that rust on contact with tropical sweat.

  10. ariel says:

    I love the 1st version of htc one and the mini, but this one looka overkill..parang oa na ang dating tas napakalowend naman ng features nya…

  11. jejefrek says:

    Haaaay ang mga samsung fantards! T.T

  12. Kups says:

    removable back without removable battery? are you kidding me HTC?!

  13. wew says:

    basta wag nilang ioverprice to may bibili nito

  14. I love HTC products and I currently use the HTC One but if I were in the market for a 5″+ device, my first choice would be the Note 3, then the Sony Xperia Z Ultra.

    This device was released way too late, has mediocre specs and fingerprint scanner is a useless feature. Would’ve been better if they included a stylus like the Note 3.

  15. Sharingan_yeah says:

    Bakit kaya ang Vertu phones alang bumabatikos? Lame specs and pricing :(

    But to be fucking honest again, 2014 is the era of 3 or 4gb ram. 2.0 Ghz and up frequency and new processors.

    Only if they want to compete talaga.

    • wew says:

      tanga lang dre? hinde specs ang binabayaran sa vertu, ung pangalan, build quality pati experience magkaibang mundo po ang htc,samsung,sony,etc. sa vertu kahit parehas silang android.

    • kim says:

      @wew TAMA hahaha, baka tulala yan nung nag comment hahaha. compare pa naman ang diamond sa normal stone? hahaha

    • Zobel says:

      At paano mababatikos ang Vertu eh hindi naman nafe-feature yan? Isa pa it’s more like jewelry than a cellphone.

  16. fanatic says:

    they should have used snapdragon 800! just like LG G2 that have the newest innovation and features
