HTC Australia has confirmed that the HTC One Max – essentially a super-sized version of the HTC One with a 5.9-inch screen (yes, we’re still wondering why a nearly six-inch screen) – is coming to Australia. The phone will be an exclusive phone with Telstra.
The HTC One max also includes a quad-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, 16GB of onboard storage with a microSD card slot, and a large 3300mAh battery. The HTC One Max also includes a fingerprint reader – like the iPhone 5s – which is located at the back of the phone, and lets you unlock the screen and launch up to three apps by assigning them to an individual finger.
The phone also will include 65GB of additional storage for two years with Google Drive.
The HTC One max will be available from Telstra on November 26, on a 24-month $80 Everyday Connect Plan with a $4 monthly handset repayment fee. Alternatively, the phone will be available outright for $816.
Preorders for the HTC One max on Telstra begin today, with a special offer to get a free Beats Pill Speaker.
