It’s been so long since we’d properly written about the HTC One M8 Max (early August, in fact), that we were starting to think it might’ve been canned altogether.
But nope! A spanking new rumour from out of China says the HTC One M8 Max is very much still on the cards, with suitably beastly specs.
It’s My Drivers spilling the news, though it’s probably fair to say the Chinese-language publication has a bit of a, uhm, mixed record.
As such, we’ll take this story with a generous pinch of salt, while simultaneously hoping that it is on the mark, ‘cause the device they’re painting sounds hella tasty.
Supposedly, supposedly, HTC One M8 Max specs include a 5.5in QHD display (2560 x 1440), Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 3,000mAh battery, 18MP rear camera with optical image stabilisation (we heard the other day that UltraPixels might be dead), and Android L.
At one point there was lots of talk of an HTC One M8 Plus and One M8 Prime, but it’s probably safe to put those rumours aside (waterproofing, “exotic” materials), and expect what’s essentially a larger One M8 with top-of-the-range specs.
All sounds great on paper, but there’s no getting past the point that the 5.5in iPhone 6 Plus and 5.7in Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are already here. If the HTC One M8 Max does become a reality, it’ll be more than just a little late to the party.
