After many months of leakage and speculation, the HTC One Max is finally official, and we've got our hands on the 5.9-inch handset, which packs familiar internal hardware.
The short version is the One Max is, on the inside, essentially an HTC One. It's powered by a Snapdragon 600 processor with 2GB of RAM and a 1080p display. But it's also got removable storage in addition to its 16GB of onboard flash, and there's a fingerprint scanner underneath that 4-megapixel "Ultrapixel" camera. It's also the first HTC phone to launch with Android 4.3 and the new Sense 5.5 UI.
You'll find the long version after the break.
