HTC One Max rumors suggest phablet launching with Android 4.3, Sense 5.5
HTC’s One Max phablet has been leaking in various forms for months now, and while HTC has yet to go official with this baby, we’ve already hear a considerable bit about the handset. Today, the most recent One Max rumors to make the rounds go into a little extra detail about the hardware and software configuration with which the Android could arrive.
Like, remember that fingerprint scanner to surface on a leaked image? There’s no mention of such a feature in this leaked spec breakdown, calling into question its existence (which was already pretty shaky to begin with).
As for software, this indicates that HTC plans to have Android 4.3 installed at launch time, running an updated Sense 5.5; unfortunately, we haven’t picked up any details regarding just what improvements may be in store for us.
Beyond that, there’s little new here: confirmation of a 5.9-inch 1080p panel and the presence of a Snapdragon 800 SoC, along with one of HTC’s UltraPixel cameras and a 2.1-megapixel front-facer. With any luck, we’ll get the full story at the IFA in Berlin next week.
