Best Buy, Sprint slip-ups suggest Nov. 15 release date for HTC One max [updated]

HTC One Max Release Date

Bigger is better in the smartphone market these days and while HTC is very late to game in the supersized phablet category, its first offering appears to be a relatively strong one. The company’s HTC One max smartphone features a 5.9-inch 1080p full HD display, a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, an UltraPixel rear camera, 32GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, a 3,300 mAh battery and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean under HTC’s new Sense 5.5 software. And according to slip-ups from both Sprint and Best Buy, it looks like the phone will debut this Friday, November 15th. HTC has yet to make any announcements but with both a major carrier and the nation’s top retailer both pointing to the same date, we can likely expect one to come very shortly.

UPDATE: The HTC One max for Sprint is now official. BGR received the following note via email from a Sprint spokesperson:

Just in time for the holidays, Sprint will launch HTC One max this Friday, Nov. 15 for $249.99 with a new line or eligible upgrade and two-year service agreement or $25.00 per month with Sprint One Up (excluding taxes). The device will be available in all Sprint sales channels, including Sprint Stores, Sprint Business Sales, Telesales (1-800-SPRINT1) and Web Sales.

A larger version of the popular and award winning, HTC One, the HTC One max has a 5.9” full HD1080p display, UltraPixel camera, large 3300mAh embedded battery and quad-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 600 processor featuring a 1.7GHz CPU enabling jaw-dropping performance, ultra vivid videos and booming sound. HTC One max is also equipped with the unique features users have come to love such as HTC BlinkFeed™, HTC BoomSound™ and HTC Zoe™.
