September launch rumoured for HTC One Max and HTC One Mini

HTC is set to expand its range of smartphones with the release of the HTC One Mini and the HTC One Max in September, it is believed.

The HTC One Max, a large phablet device, will be released in early September in order to challenge the Galaxy Note 3, a source has told German site Mobile Geeks.

According to the source, the device will boast a six inch Super LCD 3 1080p display, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB RAM. It will be available with 32GB or 64GB of storage.

The source did not allude to whether the device will use a stylus, a technology which HTC's unsuccessful tablet, the HTC Flyer released in 2011 utilised.

Meanwhile, HTC has posted a blog post/infographic to celebrate "Little Things That Pack a BIG Punch", something which has encouraged rumours that an announcement to confirm the HTC One Mini is imminent.

"The HTC One, nearly everyone agrees, is the pinnacle of smartphone achievement. The beautiful metal design, powerful hardware, and innovative user experience pack a lot into a svelte package, making it hit with critics and consumers alike," the post reads.

"This success has only boosted our passion to bring the One experience to as many people as possible. In that spirit, here's an homage to little things that back a big punch."

Mobile Geeks' source also handed them the specifications of the HTC One Mini, claiming it will have a 4.3in 720p LCD Display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 Dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB of storage.
