HTC has been on a spree releasing color options of the HTC One Max across South Asian countries. Recently they released the HTC One Max in a golden hue (calling it “Amber Gold”) in Taiwan. We have also been seeing color options popup for their current flagship – the HTC One, including an 18 karat gold HTC One released on the 18th anniversary of the MOBO Awards. HTC had earlier released the HTC One Max in its red avatar in their home-base Taiwan before its release in Hong Kong.
The Red HTC One Max released in Hong Kong is the 4G LTE variant of the device and not the standard 3G model. The device is officially priced in Hong Kong is HK $6198 (approximately $800 USD). The device was originally released in two color options – silver and black.
With the difference in color, the specifications and features of the device remain the same. The HTC One Max boasts a huge 5.9-inch 1080p Full-HD display which offers a fantastic 373 pixels per inch (ppi) resolution, with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7 GHz, an Adreno 320 GPU with ample 2 GB of RAM. Internal storage is available in 16 GB and 32 GB options, which can be enhanced further by the MicroSD slot which supports up to 64 GB. The device is equipped with quad-band 2G, tri-band 3G and quad-band LTE (4G) radios. The HTC One Max is powered by a 3,300 mAh Li-Po battery which provides up to 25 hours talk time on 3G. The device is also the first from HTC to sport a finger print sensor on the back – just below the 4-megapixel (MP) primary camera – which can be used to unlock the device or even to encrypt-decrypt documents. The device also sports a 2.1-megapixel secondary camera for video calls.
Though there is no clarity (as of yet) that we would see this color option being available in the US any time soon, we are keeping our hopes up that HTC would eventually release the HTC One Max in all its color options (including the Amber Gold variant) in the US.
