HTC One Max Makes A Big Entrance In Malaysia

The gigantic HTC One Max with its 5.9″ Full HD display is now available in Malaysia. It’s 32GB storage model in Gracial Silver is priced at RM2,499 and you can get it through HTC retailers. If you’re looking for the Stealth Black unit, it will be available sometime in late December.

HTC One Max is phablet smartphone from the HTC family, and was launched last month.

The One Max is the biggest among the HTC One trio with its 4.7″ HTC One (32GB) being priced at RM2,199 and its smallest 4.3″ HTC One mini (16GB) at RM1,699. All three feature HTC’s aluminium design which gives a more upmarket feel.

The HTC One Max is powered with a familiar Quad-Core Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz that’s mated with 2GB of RAM. Juicing up the battery is a mammoth capacity 3,300mAh battery which unfortunately is non user replaceable despite having a removable back cover.

It comes with a storage option of 32GB and 64GB and it is good to know that it now comes with an expandable microSD slot. New on the HTC One Max is a fingerprint scanner but from our hands-on it isn’t as practical to use as Apple’s Touch ID.

It retains the 4MP effective Ultrapixel camera and Boom Sound stereo speakers, albeit lacking Beats Audio. Unlike the HTC One, the One Max lacks Optical Image Stabilisation. Out of the box, it runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with Sense 5.5 which was recently being rolled out to existing HTC One users.

About HTC One Max and its specs:

The new HTC One Max is well into phablet territory at nearly 6 inches, but retains the slick aluminum case design of its smaller predecessor, as well as the somewhat dodgy Ultrapixel camera.

But its full 1080p screen packs an impressive 349 ppi, and it has a fingerprint sensor on the back with some interesting tricks up its sleeve.

HTC’s fingerprint scanner is programmable for up to three separate fingers, which can instantly launch up to three separate apps without requiring unlocking or a trip to the home screen.

The One Max fingerprint sensor can also unlock the phone, and is located on the back of the device just beneath the camera lens.

Another key improvement for the HTC One Max is that it has expandable memory – there’s either 16GB or 32GB built-in, but you can take off the rear cover and put in a micro SD card for up to 64GB more, which is a considerable advantage.

Other specs include a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor (same as the One) and an IR blaster. It’s set to launch in Europe and Asia in October, and then it’ll make its way to the U.S. shortly after that, likely in early November.

The launch also introduces Sense 5.5 for the first time, which brings slight tweaks rather than a complete redesign to the custom HTC skin.

Sense 5.5 also brings updates to the HTC Zoe picture mode too, such as allowing ‘Zoes’ to be shared directly to Facebook and other networks rather than having to go via HTC Share firsts as was previously the case.

It also introduces a GIF editor and new options for the Highlights reel, such as being able to pick your own music and a removal of the 30 second time limit that had previously applied to Highlight Videos.

There’s also an optional Power Flip Case (in picture) that can charge the handset while it is being stowed away, and can fold over to prop the phone up in landscape mode if you’re watching a movie.
