Rumor Has It: HTC One Max could be the phablet you didn't know you wanted

Two phone rumors this week, but not one of them about the iPhone. Crazy! Samsung might be working on a flip phone, and HTC could have a phablet in your pocket by next month.

Something big from HTC?

Is HTC working on a phablet called the HTC One Max?

Smartphones all look kind of the same, don't they? Candy-bar designs with touch screens that are big, small, and everything in between seem to rule the market.

So it's nice to know that Samsung is still trying to shake things up, at least abroad. A new rumor popped up this week, alleging that Samsung is working on the Galaxy Folder , a flip-phone Android handset, possibly for the Chinese market.

Not to be outdone, HTC could be working on shaking things up, too. Reports of a new phablet , possibly called the HTC One Max, have been coming in fast and furiously lately, and I think this time, they're right on track. What do you think? Would you be into a phone with a 5.9-inch screen? Let me know in the comments.

Bonus clip: A dismembered thumb makes a cameo appearance.
