We’ve been hearing a lot about the turmoil that HTC is going through as it tries to make the best of a Q3 that they have been expecting to make a loss during, and in the midst of all this uncertainty surrounding the company is the question: where is the HTC One Max? We’ve been hearing tidbits here and there regarding the device, but nothing official, though it was once rumoured that the 5.9-inch device would have the highly regarded Snapdragon 800 processor which is the choice processor for the next generation of smartphones and phablets alike.
It’s with great surprise then that we report that evleaks has tweeted this on his Twitter account:

If this is to be believed, the HTC One Max is going to be severely underpowered compared to its phablet rivals like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and LG G2 and is really going to struggle put itself at the forefront of the market without something very unique (a fingerprint scanner perhaps?). While this is certainly unexpected, it doesn’t quite surprise me that HTC would be using a slightly older processor like the Snapdragon S4 in its first phablet phone primarily due to its financial downturn.
What do you think about this rumour: true or false? And if it were true, would you still want to get the HTC One Max?
