HTC pegs October 16 launch for One Max, event invites are out

The HTC One Max we were talking about just a few hours ago has gone official. Well, almost. HTC has started sending out invites to the launch event and according to the details, the phablet won’t hit the company’s home country first.

That the One Max has been allotted separate dates for making its debut in Taiwan and Hong Kong, is all we know. Accordingly, the device will be released on October 18 and October 16 in the said regions, respectively.

And forget about finding out the Verizon launch day right now. HTC hasn’t dropped the slightest hint about the phablet’s entry into other markets yet. So how do we know it’s the One Max indeed for which the company has sent out invitations?

Engadget says that the invite carries the words –

‘One finger opens up a big view
You are invited to immerse in the sound with us’

Doesn’t take a genius to figure out the riddle, right? A fingerprint reader to unlock the phone and the dual-speaker BoomSound audio HTC is so proud of are practically written right into words. As for one finger for opening up a ‘big view,’ there have been speculations about a screen size of at least 6 inches on the device.

The smartphone may run on Android 4.3. Rumors have been indicating a quad core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, internal memory of up to 16GB, an Ultrapixel camera and HTC Sense 5.5 on the specs sheet. Piecing together the leaked images we’ve seen until today, the design may include an aluminum back-plate.

Well, October 16 isn’t that far away.
