HTC One Max Carriers Shape Up as Launch Nears
While the HTC One Max still remains unofficial, the device known internally as the HTC T6 has seen rumors pick up in recent days with rumors pointing to a launch in September and now, a launch on the United States’ second largest 4G LTE carrier, AT&T.
The HTC One Max, also known as the HTC T6, is thought to be a larger version of the current HTC One. The device, which would join the HTC One and HTC One Mini and challenge the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is thought to have a massive 5.9-inch to 6-inch display, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, a massive battery, a full metal design like the HTC One and a stylus, just like the S Pen that comes bundled with the Samsung Galaxy Note series of devices.
Rumors suggest that the HTC One Max could launch in September, the same month that Samsung is rumored to be introducing the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and rumors have suggested that it could arrive on the two biggest carriers in the U.S.
Previously, we heard that the HTC One Max would be heading to Verizon, the carrier that has announced the current HTC One but has yet to tag it with a release date.
Now, the well-sourced @evleaks has suggested that the HTC One Max will be heading to AT&T as well, which could mean a multi-carrier approach for the larger version of the HTC One. With the Galaxy Note 3 likely heading to a number of carriers, HTC is likely looking into getting its large-screen model onto as many big name carriers as it can.

This of course is no guarantee, but given who the rumor is coming from and AT&T’s close relationship with HTC, it would not be surprising to see the HTC One Max arrive on AT&T’s 4G LTE network to battle the Galaxy Note 3.
No specific release date has been mentioned though with the Galaxy Note 3 likely coming out a few weeks after an early September launch, a late September, early October release is not out of the question.
