The HTC One Max, set to debut in a few weeks time, is currently the first mainstream “phablet” device to feature a fingerprint sensing component. Though its 5.9 inch display isn’t necessarily the biggest in the market, the One Max still possesses a lot more size and elegance than some of the existing large handhelds, and packs enough interesting new features to warrant attention from first time, as well as existing, HTC users.
Earlier this week, we were fortunate enough to get our hands on a completely new One Max device that was sealed in its original package. The photo gallery capturing the entire un-boxing process can be seen below:
▲ The HTC One Max’s box, featuring a similar design artwork as the New HTC One’s.
▲ Cutting through the package’s shrink wrap.
▲ The 5.9-inch One Max device is the first thing to show up after the box’s lid is taken off.
▲ Key accessories, including: headphones, extra ear pieces, wall charger, usb cable, protective cover.
▲ A closer look at the box’s internals.
▲ The One Max’s transparent protective cover; The opening at the top is intended for the rear camera and finger print sensor.
▲ The headphones still feature a red and black color scheme, though unlike the previous versions, the beats audio logo is no longer visible.
▲ Front and back sides of the HTC One Max, with the plastic wrap intact.
▲ When viewed from the front, the One Max looks almost identical to the HTC One. The two do not appear to have many major differences as far as design is concerned.
▲ The back of the HTC One max shows off its rear 4MP camera as well as the finger print sensing component. Given the broken ties with Beats Audio, the company’s Logo is no longer shown at the bottom.
▲ The One Max phone and iPhone 4S placed side by side.
▲ The One Max and Sony Experia Z in a side by side shot.
▲ A view of the One Max from four different angles. On the top you’ll find the 3.5 mm headphone jack and infra red emitter, and on the sides are the power and volume buttons as well as a tiny switch that enables the back cover to be removed. At the bottom are the usual spots for the device’s primary microphone and micro usb sync connector.
▲ Detaching the back cover exposes an intricate looking back panel where the Micro sim card and Micro SSD can be removed.
