I don’t know if you know this, but big phones are a thing. Maybe not in your neck of the woods, but in some Asian countries, they’re all the rage. The logic behind the decision to purchase a phablet goes something like this: Why should I buy a phone and a tablet when I can just buy one thing that I can take with me everywhere I go?
At least that’s what I thought when I bought my Note II earlier this year.
Now HTC has yet to release a phablet, but that’s soon going to change. Rumors of a device known as the One Max have been floating around the internets for months. As the name suggests, the One Max is essentially the HTC One, but with a massive 5.9 inch screen. The exact specs of the phone are a bit controversial at the moment, no one knows which Snapdragon it uses, but one thing is for sure: The phone has a fingerprint sensor on the back.
And today, thanks to China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center (think of them like America’s FCC), we have absolute undeniable proof that this phone not only exists, but that it’s fully certified to run on China’s mobile networks.
There’s only one unanswered question here really: When will this phone be announced?
