HTC has been struggling lately to capture the Android market with its devices and in an attempt to compete with the likes of Samsung and other Android smartphone manufacturers the Taiwanese giant went on to announce the launch of the HTC One Max which is a 5.9 inch phablet with a design language that on the HTC One which has been appreciated by many but with with a little scaled down internal specifications. And earlier this week, the company launched the HTC One Max in the Indian subcontinent for a hefty price tag.


Going by the specifications, the HTC One Max goes on to pack in a 5.9 inch full HD LCD3 display while it is powered by a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocking in at 1.7 GHz but sadly there is no Snapdragon 800 processor on this device. A 2 GB RAM has been included to support all the processing on the smartphone while internal memory is pegged at 16 GB and 32 GB which will further be expandable up to 64 GB using a MicroSD card slot. The HTC One Max arrives with a removable back plate which will give users access to the microSD card slot but the battery is non-removable and cannot be accessed.

The HTC One Max carries the same 4 megapixel ‘UltraPixel’ camera with LED Flash as on the HTC One while there is a 2.1 megapixel front facing camera for video calls. The device also packs in front facing stereo dual speakers with HTC BoomSound which will give users an enhanced music-listening experience. Android 4.3 Jelly Bean runs the show on the smartphone and HTC Sense 5.5 is on the top of it. HTC One Max comes with a built-in Fingerprint Scan feature which is located on the back of the device. The fingerprint scanner allows users to lock or unlock the screen and quickly launch up to three favorite applications by assigning an individual finger to each. The HTC One Max carries 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, MHL, NFC and 3.5mm audio jack when we consider the connectivity options. There is a 3300 mAh battery on the One max which should be enough to give users a decent backup.

HTC has priced the HTC One Max at a hefty Rs.56,490 which is the MOP while the MRP is quoted at around Rs.61,000 which is too high for the specifications that the device packs in. We really wonder if the device will find any good number of buyers in India or not.
