HTC just announced the One Max, its first phablet device and the third member of the One family for 2013. Here's a quick overview of the specs of the One Max:
One of the key features of the One Max is its fingerprint scanner. Besides functioning as a security mechanism, the fingerprint scanner allows you to launch three apps with three fingers. To unlock the device, you have to swipe your finger on the scanner.
The One Max runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but the real treat is the latest Sense 5.5 which brings updates to BlinkFeed and the camera interface. You now have the option to disable BlinkFeed, customize content in BlinkFeed and save content from BlinkFeed for offline viewing.
To power its massive 5.9-inch display, the One Max comes with a non-removable 3,300mAh battery which is stated to provide up to 25 hours of 3G talk time. It also has a micro-SD memory card slot to complement its 16GB internal storage.
At point of publication, HTC Singapore has no information on the price and availability of the device although there are reports that the device is coming to European and Asian markets by the end of the week.
