HTC One M8 Max specs: 5.5in QHD, QS805 CPU, 3GB RAM, 18MP with OIS?

HTC One M8 Max specs: 5.5in QHD, QS805 CPU, 3GB RAM, 18MP with OIS?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.

Probably too late to the party. The first HTC One Max was huge and this one will be too. A lot of people wanted bigger phones hence the new iPhone but this will be ridiculously big. The specs sound great, why can't manufacturers make phones between 4.8-5.0 inch screens with these kind of specs? Surely they would sell better?

Seems like promising device. Time to replace Note 2 with something non Sucksung.

Yep... too big.
Maybe interesting for the camera, but the Z1 and Lumia 1520 taught me that such big devices are awkward for snapshots. I'd like high-end sub-5inchers. Seems Sony and Apple are the only two catering to me. And yet... nah
