We saw the bigger version of HTC One, HTC One Max, pose for the camera in the past. Images leaked multiple times and led us to believe that HTC has a device in their pipeline that will soon compete with Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Today, we have an unofficial press render of HTC One Max, leaked by none other than the ever-accurate @evleaks. We have every reason to believe that HTC One Max is not just a myth, but a real device to be launched very soon. The Twitter account was spot-on with a number of popular devices such as Moto X and LG G2, just to name a few.

Surprisingly, a commenter on Engadget who claimed to be HTC Senior Global Online Communications Manager Jeff Gordan, denied this image to be the One Max. He did use a nickname to comment on the article but later tweeted about the scenario on his Twitter account. He may be correct, but I will go with the accuracy of @evleaks and believe that there is a phablet in HTC’s near future.
Me: Try to make a helpful comment on @engadget about the company I work for. Engadget commenter: “Get out of here, troll.”

Currently, there is no official word from the Taiwanese manufacturer about what this device would bring at the table. However, the rumors are suggesting that it will pack a 5.9 inch display, a Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz with 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage and a 3,200 mAh battery. The device is expected to feature a semi-detachable back and a dual-SIM design.
There is no official news about the availability of the device but it is expected to rock the show at IFA 2013. Samsung has already announced the Unpacked event on September 4. If its true, our main question would be, ‘can it compete with Galaxy Note 3?’
