HTC One Max Available In India For Rs 56,500

The 5.9" smartphone comes with a quad-core Snapdragon 600 chipset and fingerprint-scanner.


Announced last month, HTC's big phone aptly named One Max is finally up for grabs from stores. The 5.9-incher looks exactly like the original HTC One, save for the bigger size. With it's full-HD screen and 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 chipset, it's meant to compete with Samsung's GALAXY Note 3. HTC's offering feels premium compared to the plasticky Note 3, but this up-market feel comes at a price though as the One Max is pegged at Rs 56,500. On the other hand, Samsung gets an edge due to its S-pen (stylus) integration and a lesser price tag.

Similar to the iPhone 5s, the One Max comes with a fingerprint scanner. This rear-side sensor let's you unlock the phone as well as launch your favourite apps with a single finger swipe.
