HTC has been eager to spread its One M8 flagship line to capitalize on the success of the Android powerhouse. We have already seen the HTC One Mini 2, but the company then shot down rumours of a super phone version of the M8 called the HTC One M8 Prime. That does not mean that a blazing version of the flagship can now be forgotten, as HTC is rumoured to have something else up its sleeve.The Taiwanese company is said to be working on a new One Max handset that will be based off the M8 and will replace the current Max. The first HTC One Max was a phablet version of the company's original One M7, but it lacked some of the core specs and was a mid-range device. The new Max will follow a similar blueprint and will look identical to the One M8, only it will be bigger, and HTC has decided not to make it a mid-range effort. Instead, a report from TKTechNews says that the new HTC One Max will have some market leading hardware on board. The specs are rumoured to include the latest chip from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 805 and will have 3GB of RAM backing it up. That chipset would put it on par with other Android heavyweights, including the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Of course, as the HTC One Max will be a six inch monster, the Note 4 will its biggest competitor, but the phablet market is really taking shape beyond Samsung's all-conquering range. Chinese brands are releasing their own blockbuster big screen devices, and even Apple is set to get in on the act with a 5.5-inch iPhone. That means that the big screen market could be more vibrant than it has ever been, so HTC will have to deliver something special to stay relevant in the space. source: TK Tech News
