It was love at first sight for many that saw the HTC One range – the One (M8) even made it to Stuff's Top 10 list. And now, rumours are indicating that the Taiwanese mobile device maker could be making a jumbo version of the device.
And don’t mistake us – we’re not talking about the purported HTC One (M9) that has been nicknamed Hima Ace. It’s actually a bigger version of the unit, speculated to be called the Hima Ace Plus or HTC One Max.
According to sources of 4GNews, HTC’s been busy crafting up the device behind closed doors and if the speculations prove to be true, it could reign as one of the company’s best phones created.
That means the alleged device should have more than just a decent set of specs. By the looks of what sources are saying, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be a shabby over-hyped unit. Word’s out that it will be a 5.5in device that comes with a bezel-free edge-to-edge display.
If that’s already got you swooning over it, there’s more – the alleged HTC Hima Ace Plus might come out of the box with a quad-HD display, at 2560 x 1440 (coming up to a stunning 534ppi), meaning your eyes might be in for a treat especially if it’s got no or very tiny bezels.
Its camera is said to be pretty impressive too – a 20MP rear snapper and a 4MP front-facing selfie camera is said to be fitted on the device, with he UltraPixel sensor that was seen on the Desire 826. A fingerprint scanner could also be included.
Its innards might include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor running at 2.3GHz, 3GB of RAM, internal storage of 32GB (although it’s unclear if it’s expandable), and a 3000mAh battery.
The HTC One (M9) could be making its debut at Mobile World Congress 2015, so we’re expecting the Max to arrive not much sooner than that – that is, if it’s in the make.
