HTC's One Max? ePrice

Less than a month after rumors began circulating that HTC was building a phablet to take on Samsung's Galaxy Note series, images of the purported device have popped up on a Taiwan Web site.

Codenamed T6, the HTC One Max will sport a 5.9-inch, full 1080p screen, according to a post on Taiwan-based ePrice. While the current HTC One is powered by the Snapdragon 600, the HTC One Max will sport a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, according to the post. The One Max also features the same UltraPixel and 2.1-megapixel front-facing cameras as the One.

The device, which is expected to run Android 4.3, includes 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 3300mAh battery, according to the post.

The One Max is expected to be released next month, according to German mobile site Mobile Geeks, which last month was first to report HTC's plans for the device.

CNET has contacted HTC for comment and will update this report when we learn more.
