Seeing the yet to be released HTC One Max, complete with its towering 5.9-inch Full HD screen, smiling for the camera is not exactly news, as it’s happened already a couple of times, but there are two intriguing things the newest pack of leaked pics reveals.
For one thing, we’re finally getting a sense of One Max’s real-life size, as it’s being compared with two other giants out and about, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 and 3. Also, there’s an AnTuTu benchmark score, which seems to pretty much set in stone the wild rumor that emerged a couple of days ago.
But let’s start from the beginning by saying you can argue with plenty of HTC choices, like using of specific chips or software update timetables, but you can’t possibly badmouth their designs. Following on the footsteps of the 4.7-inch One, the Max looks gorgeous even next to the GNote 3, being ever so slightly larger than that fellow, which means the bezels are super slim.
And don’t even get me started on the aluminum unibody. In a nutshell, everything about the fellow’s external appearance is undeniably gorgeous.
But I’m afraid the phablet might not be so beautiful on the inside. Seeing as it scores just 26,400 points in AnTuTu, so about as much as the HTC One, there’s absolutely no way it packs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
Then again, it might not come with an S4 Pro chip either, but instead a Snapdragon 600. On the whole, the two are virtually identical in terms of raw performance, so the big scoop here is the One Max will likely not be able to compete on even terms with the Note 3 or LG G2, both capable of scoring over 35,000 points in AnTuTu. Not cool, HTC, not cool at all!
