    The HTC One Max sure isn't shy about posing for the camera, and earlier today we brought you the latest pics of the hardware to arrive. While the general layout looks like a lock, we've been hearing some conflicting rumors about internal hardware choices, and last week the idea landed that the phablet might not run a Snapdragon 800, but something more along the lines of an S4 Pro, instead. That's not particularly great news, but one way or another, we'd like to get it either confirmed and learn to live with it, or see it rejected and get back to guessing. Yet another new One Max leak ...

    The HTC One Max, which recently popped up again, after its branding has been confirmed via a leak, will most probably feature a fingerprint scanner, and, according to the leaked images we've seen so far, it will be on the back of the device, opposed to the one on the front of the new iPhone 5S. This latest set of images seems to reconfirm the scanner theory, but, seem to contradict recent spec-related chatter. Some reports claim a Snapdragon 800 processor, while others claim it will be powered by an S4 CPU. A full HD screen is expected to grace the front, 2GB of RAM under the hood, 16GB ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about some Nokia Insider information that mentions the use of Android on Lumia models for testing purposes before the deal with Microsoft came to be. Then we talk about HP as it's now rumored that the company will build their own Windows Phone, even though the report is quite limited. Samsung is up next as the FCC has received yet another Windows Phone for approval, and this one seems as if its going to AT&T. We then talk about the HTC One Max since hey, we're still waiting for it, and leaks in photos continue to surface. We end today's show ...

    There's one fewer Romanian on this week's podcast, and we're no longer hovering over a precarious microphone stand made of empty shoeboxes and trash cans in a European hotel room - but that doesn't mean this latest episode of the Pocketnow Weekly is lacking in charm. On the contrary, we've called in a silver-tongued devil from Honduras and a smooth-talking geocacher from middle America to provide two very different perspectives on some very high-visibility smartphones. That's right: it's Apple week. That special time of year where iOS makes its way to the top of our rundown and instigates ...

    There's been no shortage of leaks when it comes to HTC's upcoming phablet, the One Max. We've had the opportunity to check out a number of pictures, including an early render, as well as images appearing to reveal the handset's rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Most recently, we've been getting confirmation for the phone's name. Today we have a couple new pics to add to the assortment we've already seen, comparing the One Max to some original Ones. Update: Better imagery now available. Unfortunately, these shots are quite low resolution, so we've had to enlarge them just to get a usable ...

    Those expecting the HTC One Max phablet, the rumored phone, at IFA 2013 were disappointed to see it not show up. Despite the fact that it would have made all the sense in the world for HTC to announce it at the Berlin show, you know, to compete with Samsung's Note 3, the Taiwanese company had a very poor presence at the Funkturm-show. However, the leaks continue. In addition to what we've already seen and heard about a future possible inflated HTC One, we're now seeing what is claimed to be the branding of the alleged upcoming phablet. All small caps for "htc one max" is apparently the ...

    The world, and us, was secretly hoping for an HTC One Max unveiling at IFA 2013, but unfortunately that didn't happen. The Taiwanese company had a very poor presence on the show floor, but is apparently preparing to unleash its first phablet upon us, if the recent reports are to be believed. The HTC One Max has been in the headlines for quite some time, and, apparently, the HTC One Max has been reportedly confirmed as the official name of the phone. Furthermore, unconfirmed rumors are talking about the phone being "Sprint-bound". Whether we're talking about initial exclusivity, or a ...

    That's right, it's about that time for IFA 2013 to happen, and you can bet we'll be covering every inch of the show floor in Berlin.

One of these new and emerging categories is the smart watch, and we know the Samsung Galaxy Gear will be a device we'll be covering extensively. Make sure you share your thoughts and predictions on what you expect to see at this event as well, and stay tuned for tons ...

    Earlier this month, leaked images of what's apparently HTC One Max hardware revealed a curious black square on the phone's rear panel, supposedly housing a fingerprint scanner. Such scanning has been the rumor du jour for the next generation of flagships, with companies like Apple and Samsung tapped to get involved. With the One Max, however, we were less sure, and subsequent leaks didn't seem to mention any fingerprint function. Well, today we get another look at the phone's hardware – this time a dual-SIM version for China – and the fingerprint evidence is increasingly hard to ...

    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 ...

    For all the talk there's been of fingerprint scanners showing up on any one of several upcoming smartphones – from companies like Apple or Samsung – evidence has been seriously light. What we do get to see is often circumstantial, and it's been notoriously difficult to just get a nice, clear look at some scanner hardware. Today, we may get just such a fabled run-in, with some new imagery surfacing of the HTC One family, including the upcoming Max. We've got two surprises here, from this look at the phone's rear. The most obvious one is the presence of that odd black square; if we're to ...

    Big phones are in. Well, sort of. Some manufacturers seem to think so. Smartphones have been growing in size for years now, from a once normal 3.5-inches to upwards of 4.7-inches. Ever since Samsung introduced a smartphone that broke the 5-inch threshold, the idea of carrying a phone that rides the ever-shrinking barrier between smartphones and tablets became somewhat popularized. Now, a great deal of flagship devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S 4, come with displays that measure 5-inches, diagonally. And that's only the beginning. We just finished reviewing the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, a ...

    If you thought the Palm commercials of 2009 were as weird as mobile tech advertising would ever get, HTC and Robert Downey Jr. have something to show you. That's the conversation that kicks off this week's edition of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, and it's followed by some heartening news about this year's IFA in Berlin. If the rumors hold true, we should be in for some powerfully geeky, if unconventional, tech in Germany this year - and even if they don't, we've got plenty to talk about in the way of chipsets, Nexii, smartwatches, and phablets. If none of those terms make sense to you, ...

    Not too long ago we've seen a purported image showing just how big the HTC One Max will be. The Taiwanese company is reportedly preparing an HTC One-like phablet to complete the line-up consisting of the One, and One Mini. The image above, coming from @evleaks, allegedly depicts the One Max phablet in the form of a leaked press render. Apparently this is not the final version but it is as close as it gets as far as pictures we've seen of the device. You can clearly see the One-like design and construction. As with the One Mini, HTC repositioned the LED flash at the back of the device. ...

    After the first leaked photo of the HTC One Max reached the webs yesterday, it was the general consensus that even though it does look like an HTC One, it's hard to tell if it really isn't just a good camera trick to make the HTC One or HTC One mini seem bigger. We've heard about HTC's phablet project for the longest time, but until yesterday, we hadn't really seen it in anything other than diagrams. Today we have some more leaked photos from ePrice, and this time they were nice enough to put all our worries to rest by actually comparing the HTC One Maxx to another phone. Surely comparing ...

    A little earlier this afternoon, HTC posted a short Vine clip to Twitter with the announcement "big things ahead," and featuring the hashtag #HTChange – what could the company be up to here? The "big things" part might conjure up thoughts of the HTC One Max, especially after we got to check out that leaked photo. It looks like Phandroid was thinking the same thing, but claims to have received a tip that this could be in reference to something else entirely. The video quality is simply awful, with the aspect ratio highly distorted – in fact, if this wasn't on an official HTC account, ...

    For those of you who have a hard time deciding between the HTC One or the HTC One mini, things clearly won't end there as HTC has been reportedly working on a phablet that many are already dubbing as the HTC One Max. Still, it was hard to confirm if this device, codenamed T9 would retain the famous design of the HTC One, but the speculation should end today. A new leaked photo has surfaced, and apparently the company's new phablet will include a 5.9-inch display. Among the other enhancements reported, the specs include a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor and a 3,200mAh battery. The display ...

LG takes the spotlight next with some new trademarks that include a smart watch and a tablet. We end today's show talking about Google's event tomorrow and how we plan to give you the best live ...

    Yesterday we heard a new HTC codename for the first time: the Zara. The rumor out of China talked about both the Zara and the T6, which we're looking forward to as the One Max. It talked a little about how Zara would be a plastic phone, in contrast to the metal T6, and while we had some guesses about this actually being a plastic-bodied HTC One, we were seriously hurting for details. Well, today we get might be a few new pieces to the puzzle, courtesy of tipster @evleaks. Supposedly, in the US AT&T has its eyes on the T6/One Max, and Zara might end up on Sprint. For the Zara ...

    Last month, right around the time when HTC announced the Butterfly S, I wrote a little about the relationship between Butterfly phones and the HTC One, and applauded how HTC seemed to be setting up a pair of parallel tracks for these models – the One in metal, the Butterfly S in plastic – yet both running what's essentially the same hardware. While there was still the problem of the different phones being sold in different markets, the idea intrigued me, and I felt that HTC might be able to find more success by selling both phones alongside each other – really give shoppers a ...
