HTC One Max release date tipped for October 15

The HTC One Max release date could be just a matter of weeks away, with the oversized phone tipped to make an official arrival on October 15.

With a raft of HTC One Max leaks and rumours having done the rounds in recent weeks, new reports have claimed that the HTC One Max release date will be held on October 15, the same day that Apple is expected to formally unveil the new iPad 5 and iPad mini 2.

Citing claimed “sources familiar with HTC’s plans,” latest reports have pointed to the October 15 handset reveal will precede an in-store HTC One Max release date later the same month.

With the HTC One Max having been the subject of many leaks, it is widely believed that the HTC One and HTC One Mini sibling will enter the realms of reality with a a whopping 5.9-inch 1080p Full HD display in tow, eclipsing even the new 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in terms of on screen real estate.

A feature not seen on either of its One branded predecessors, the new reports have claimed that the HTC One Max will feature integrated microSD expansion, allowing users to further bolster the phone’s relatively restrictive 16GB of integrated storage. A number of HTC One Max rumours have also pegged the phone as packing an integrated fingerprint scanner similar to the iPhone 5S.

Elsewhere, the HTC One Max specs sheet looks set to be a familiar affair, with a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor lining up alongside 2GB of RAM, HTC’s BoomSound stereo speakers and the same 4-Ultrapixel rar-mounted camera as the flagship phone.

A date that now promises a lot, the claimed October 15 HTC One release date has yet to be formally confirmed by the Taiwanese manufacturer. Similarly, Apple has yet to confirm plans for its own October 15 launch event.
