HTC One Max leaks as oversized Galaxy Note 3 rival

The first blueprints of the plus-sized HTC One Max have leaked online revealing the handset to have a 5.9-inch display.

Previously codenamed the HTC T6, the 5.9-inch potential Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rival is now said to be called the HTC One Max.

A source speaking to Mobileaks has leaked a blueprint for the rumoured HTC One Max, showing the smartphone to be a super-sized version of the flagship HTC One.

Packing a 5.9-inch screen with 1920 x 1080p resolutions and a 373ppi image density, the HTC One Max looks to have an incredibly thin bezel and the same HTC One design.

It should have a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU with an unknown amount of RAM and be powered by a 3,330mAh battery.

Of course, it will feature the same UltraPixel camera technology as the HTC One with the HTC Zoe software and the front-facing Boom Sounds speakers.

The HTC One Max will be 9.4mm thick and be 140.4mm long. Despite packing a larger screen, dwarfing the 4.7-inch display of the HTC One, the HTC One Max isn’t that much bigger than the 137.4mm long and 9.3mm thick flagship.

What’s more interesting though is that the “tipster” states the HTC One Max will be running Android 4.3 or 5.0 when it is officially unveiled.

That could be the highly anticipated Android Key Lime Pie that failed to make an appearance at this year’s Google I/O keynote speech, despite it being seemingly confirmed on the Google Developers site just hours before.

Google may have teased Android Key Lime Pie during the Google I/O developers’ sessions, but the HTC One Max may be one of the first devices to actually run the next iteration of Google’s mobile OS.

Although a definite HTC One Max hasn’t been confirmed, the source suggests it will launch worldwide in the third quarter of 2013.
