HTC One Max to arrive only after Samsung Galaxy Note 3?

HTC One Max to arrive only after Samsung Galaxy Note 3?HTC has quite a few handsets in the pipelines for the second half of the year, though it's hard to keep track what with all the different codenames, model names and territory-specific titles that are par for the course with today's smartphones.

One of them is the HTC One Max phablet, or the HTC T6, and the latest news reaching us is that HTC's Galaxy Note rival will be launched around the same time as Samsung's third generation of Galaxy Note in September.

German site Mobile Geeks is quoting an insider familiar with the matter as having the inside track on the One Max's launch date. The claim fits with previous rumours we'd heard pointing to a Q3 announcement – though only just.

It also means we're likely to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch first, given the likelihood of Samsung's latest phablet arriving at the IFA event in Germany at the start of September, following the pattern set by the previous two Galaxy Notes.

Mobile Geeks also has a few stats to throw at us, though several of the key details emerged a month ago already.

The display is given as a 6in panel, while a month ago we were told 5.9in, probably since it actually measures 5.99in across when you get down to it.

We also hear again that the One Max will have a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor supported by 2GB of RAM, while new info includes the presence of 64GB of storage and a 3,200mAh battery.

Still up in the air is whether HTC will follow Samsung's example (and Sony's more recently with the Xperia Z Ultra), and offer stylus support with the One Max, and there's also no further indication on whether it'll feature the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS, as was alleged last month.
