Samsung Galaxy Note 3 competitors continue to come out of the woodwork and this time, it’s the rumored HTC One Max, a larger version of the HTC One, that has come out of hiding ahead of its launch in a photo that shows it next to the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3. The photo should be particularly interesting to buyers as it clearly shows that the HTC One Max is larger than even the Galaxy Note 3.
On September 4th, Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 3, its 5.7-inch, Snapdragon 800 powered phablet that arrived in many countries at the end of September and touched down in the U.S. for the first time last week. The device is still headed to Verizon and U.S. Cellular with the Verizon model scheduled to ship out sometime before its October 10th ship by date.
The Verizon Galaxy Note 3 in particular is expected to get some fierce competition particularly from the HTC One Max, a device that has been rumored for weeks now and is expected to land sometime soon with October 15th being rumored as a possible launch date. With its enormous display and high-powered specifications, the HTC One Max has shown itself to be a possible contender to Samsung’s new device.
In the next few weeks, buyers will be weighing the two devices in the United States. And while a decision will certainly come easier once the device is made official, buyers can start preparing right now for the upcoming battle. In addition to being able to compare specifications, buyers can now also compare the sizes of the two devices. While we’ve seen photos of the Galaxy Note 3 and the HTC One Max in the past, the latest photo from EPrice offers another glimpse at just how big the HTC One Max truly is.
The photo depicts an HTC One Max that makes the Galaxy Note 3 look small. Other photos of the HTC One Max have pointed to a truly massive smartphone and this photo only serves as reinforcement. In addition to its large design footprint, the HTC One Max is expected to utilize a near 6-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor and an Ultrapixel camera like the one found on the HTC One.
Both the HTC One Max and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 are expected to get competition from an LG device with a flexible display, a device that could be launching sometime later in the year.
