Is the HTC One Max (T6) shown in this blueprint?

    HTC T6

    The HTC T6 has been apparently shown in an alleged blueprint that has made its way to the Internet, revealing its potential size in the process (provided it’s real).

    Dutch site Mobileaks has published the blueprint, which you can see below, and the same source claims that the device, which is set to be HTC’s answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, will be called the HTC One Max, a name we’ve seen in a previous T6 report. HTC One Max would be a pretty logical name for such a device, since HTC has also been rumored for some time to have a One Mini in the works, said to launch, just like the HTC T6 (or One Max, if you prefer that name), sometime during the second half of the year.

    Here’s the blueprint, as provided by the publication:

    HTC One Max

    As you can see, we’re looking at a device that essentially shares the HTC One‘s design, but is bigger in size. According to this image (if it’s real), the HTC One Max would be 140.4 millimeters tall (the One measures 137.4mm in height), and 9.4 millimeters thick (almost as thick as the HTC One, which is 9.3mm). The device would also have Boom Sound speakers.

    The rumored specs for the smartphone include a 5.9 inch screen with a Full HD resolution, a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, as well as an UltraPixel camera. The handset is said to run Android 4.3 or 5.0 at launch.

    We don’t know how much of this could be true, but if such a device is confirmed, it should give the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, as well as the rumored Sony Xperia Togari (which seems to have appeared in another leaked image) a pretty good run for their money.

    What do you think? Is the device in the picture above the HTC One Max (T6)?

      it’ll take more than just some big screens to win the phablet war

      software & features make or break the phone

        I suppose, for those who do not root it outa the box….

      Too much bezel and borders for a device of that size.

      • Torabora

        Then what the fuck are you supposed to hold it with idiot?

        I agree, Check out the Xperia Togary, its IP58 rated super thin.Also compare the screen sizes using an online simulator. Hate to say after seeing the T6 blueprint I’m buying Togary instead.

        • Andrew Baxendale

          Yes, Boom Sound is really that great. It puts the audio quality of the HTC One is a whole other league when compared to the other top-tier smartphones. Plus, the way the speakers look make the phone look even better.

          • Gilles LeBlanc

            Nah im a phablet kinda guy. I’m liking the Sony Togarry right now.

    • Gilles LeBlanc

      Experia Torgary is IP58 rated with bigger screen, super thin HTC is beautiful and aluminum. So hard to decide, my heads gonna explode!!! Take my money!!!! Whats a PLASTYSUNG Note?

        Underdog mentality playing into that frog mind of yours.

      It’s fake, I know them, they hire a designer to make these things. You really think a small Dutch site have access to blue prints?

      I have a really hard time believing they’d be able to fit a screen 1.2 inches bigger in a body only 3 mm taller. The One does have some pretty substantial bezels that could be shrunk, but I’m not sure there’s THAT much.

      • AndyCappLives

        The One is rather tall for its 4.7″ screen. It’s almost as tall the Note II with it’s 5.5″ screen.

      i will not believe this now because a friend of mine works at htc i hear htc will have SD card in it.

      Yet another reason why the “One” product name was incredibly stupid. This is the “One” our shining example of Android hardware. Oh, and by the way, we will have the One Mini, One Max, etc… Next up is the HTC One Pony to be the next unicorn of HTC top-of-the-line handsets.

      • Andrew Baxendale

        So you make jokes about HTC when Samsung released the most phones out of every smartphone manufacturer last year? The galaxy line includes so many phones that it is losing it’s reputation. All we’re getting here is the Mini, the One, and the One Note-Size. That seems like the best strategy.

        • Ryan Lounsbury

          The Galaxy name to a consumer indicates the mobile portfolio of a Samsung. When HTC launched the One they billed it as the single Android brand that unifies their Android product line. Perhaps had they chose a product line name that didn’t indicate a singular existence vs. a portfolio of products.

          • Andrew Baxendale

            I do see your point, but using the names “One Mini, One, One Max” can work. The HTC One 2, One 3, One 4, and so on will not. I agree, they could have (and maybe should have) picked another name, because people will want the next generation of this phone next year, but might not know what the name will be. If HTC doesn’t overuse the One series name, then it will be fine. But when companies such as Samsung make phones such as the Galaxy S, Galaxy S Blaze 4g, Galaxy SII, SII SkyRocket, and so on, the name loses its luster. If HTC can find a way to make this product line continue then kudos to them. So far most people are perfectly fine with it.

            • Ryan Lounsbury

              I do agree that Samsung is BS crazy with their naming conventions and are often more confusing than not. Their main hardware devices at least have some sanity in it being the SX and the Note X. I’m being nit picky but I would have avoided the naming convention that HTC went with.

            • Christopher Vanwinkle

              Maybe it will be the HTC Two, Three, and Four for their next gen products. Or maybe they will forever call their phones the One?
