HTC is reportedly working on a large display bearing smartphone that will supersede the Butterfly S smartphone. That device is dubbed as HTC One Max, a smartphone-tablet hybrid due for arrive sometime later this year. The HTC One Max is likely to feature design similar to that of the HTC One series. German site Mobile Geeks was tipped by a source to share information that HTC plans to launch and make it available in early September.
HTC is the only handset maker yet to join the large screen phablet game after Sony Mobile. The HTC One Max is the said to be the phablet meant to trump all the large screen devices including the upcoming Galaxy Note III.
HTC One Max is expected to feature 6-inch Super LCD 3 display with full 1080p HD resolution natively. Under the chassis, it will pack a quad-core 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 mobile processor. For running the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update smoothly, the HTC handset might come packed with 2 GB RAM.
HTC will offer the One Max in 32 GB and 64 GB on-board storage options that makes us doubt if there will be any memory card slot. HTC will pack the 3200 mAh battery just like the one Butterfly S smartphone.
HTC One currently retailing for over Rs 40,000 in India while the HTC Butterfly nowadays costs about Rs 37,500 approximately. There is no way we can judge the exact price but we presume it might hit around Rs 45,000 mark.
