If you're a fan of the HTC One
but wish it had a bigger, phablet-sized display, you're in luck. HTC's enlarged One Max
is gearing up for a retail launch. You can already pre-order the device on Best Buy's website for $250 with a two-year service contract, and according to the electronics chain, it's scheduled to arrive at Sprint on November 15, 2013 (this Friday).
Sprint's been curiously quiet about the impending launch, though the wireless carrier did post a software update page for the HTC One Max on its website. The November 15th launch date is mentioned twice on that page, so barring any big surprises, the phone is headed to retail very soon.
Let's talk specs. The HTC One Max boasts a 5.9-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) display, 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB of internal storage, 2.1MP front-facing camera, HTC UltraPixel rear-facing camera, microSD card slot, 4G LTE support, NFC support, front-facing speakers with BoomSound, and a few other odds and ends wrapped in Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense.
If you're not a fan of Sprint, the HTC One is reportedly headed to both AT&T and Verizon as well, though no official release dates have yet been mentioned.
