Samsung's Galaxy Note might soon have a strong competitor from HTC.

HTC is planning to launch a phablet in September, called the One Max, German mobile site Mobile Geeks, reported on Monday. Mobile Geeks cited individuals who claim to have knowledge of the company's plans. The device will sport a 5.9-inch HD display and be available in early September, according to the site's sources.

Given the size of the device, it's no surprise it'll be equipped with the latest and greatest features, including a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and up to 64GB of storage.

According to Mobile Geeks' source, the HTC One Max will be designed to take on the Samsung Galaxy Note. It's not clear, however, if it'll come with a stylus.

CNET has contacted HTC for comment. We will update this story when we have more information.
