HTC One Max phablet to ship with new version of Sense 5.5 and Android 4.3
A new report claims that HTC's first phablet, the HTC One Max, will ship with HTC Sense 5.5 and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
HTC has a hit on its hands with the HTC One. The smartphone has been so well-received that the company has already launched a smaller version of its aluminum flagship smartphone with the HTC One Mini. HTC will soon announce its first phablet, the HTC One Max. The 5.9-inch smartphone has been designed to compete with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Sony Xperia Z Ultra, and Nokia's rumored 'Bandit' phablet.
Samsung has dominated the phablet world, but HTC is hoping that using the same recipe it used for the HTC One will translate into a similar success with the HTC One Max. The company will use the same aluminum unibody case, full HD glass display, and UltraPixel camera that made the HTC One a hit. HTC will also reportedly add a fingerprint scanner to the back of the phablet to further differentiate it from rivals.
A new report claims the HTC One Max will also include a major update to HTC Sense 5 and include Android 4.3 when it ships. HTC Sense 5.5 will reportedly make its debut on the HTC One Max and is expected to bring more features to the skin HTC uses on top of Android to make it more user friendly, although the report does not list what those features will be. The report also claims that the HTC One Max will run the recently released Android 4.3.
The current rumored specs of the HTC One Max include a 5.9-inch full HD 1080p display, a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, and 2GB of RAM. The device is expected to come in a choice of 32GB or 64GB of internal storage configurations and pack HTC's UltraPixel camera. The phablet is also expected to include a microSD expansion slot and a fingerprint scanner on its rear case, below the camera. HTC is also expected to pack a large non-removable 3,200 mAh battery.
It's best to take this report with a grain of salt, especially since there is no mention of what Sense 5.5 will include. We'll be sure to update you on more details as they become available.
