The two upcoming phablets from Samsung and HTC will be released this year and it will be a very intense competition between them. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the phablet that the Korean giant will release this year while HTC will release the HTC One Max. Users are already anticipating both and in this article we will compare them head to head to see which one of these two phablets will have better features and which one will be the “star” of the phablet market.
So far, Samsung had the monopoly of the phablet segment, as there was no real threat for its Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 2 terminals, but as things are about to change as the phablet market will be very competitive this year. We already know which will be two of the best selling models this year, LG’s Optimus G Pro and Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra, and at least two more are yet to come: the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the HTC One Max.
The two companies – HTC and Samsung did not reveal yet all the info about the HTC One Max and the Galaxy Note 3. If like us, you too are impatient, you don’t really need to wait for the official release date of these two devices to find out about the entire list of new features. We say that because there are many reports and rumours that have surfaced online so far, enough for us to be able to figure out what the main features of these two devices will be and which one would be the best choice for us (and you). Since we already know everything about the LG and the Sony phablets, I though we should talk about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and HTC One Max and put them into a head to head battle, based on the rumored technical specifications that already hit the web.
HTC has a lot of work to do with their HTC One Max if their main objective is to compete against Samsung’s upcoming phablet, the Galaxy Note 3. HTC One Max has great features but there are two things that have to be improved if it wants to be a strong competitor against the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The design of HTC One Max is very stylish and the features are great, but the reality is that the design and the increased size are not enough to make the HTC One Max better than the Galaxy Note 3.
The South Korea-based company is set to continue the success of the Galaxy Note line up with the unofficially dubbed Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which will be officially introduced on September 4th during a special Unpacking event.
The two things that will make HTC One Max a strong competitor are a removable battery and an SD card slot. This were the two main problems that users had with the HTC One. If these two issues will be addressed (customers being allowed to increase their device’s memory and allowing them to change the battery) it will mean a great improvement for HTC One Max and it will transform it into a top phablet.
Sources are pointing out that the HTC One Max will be officially unveiled at IFA Berlin 2013 tech fair. If so, then there’s no way we will see the HTC phablet coming pre-loaded with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie as the next major Android update will not be released sooner than October, when Google will celebrate its mobile operating system’s fifth birthday. Personally, I believe that the IFA 2013 launch is most likely to happen.
Since we’re talking about phablets we’re talking about 5+ inch display and both Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and HTC One Max will sport one. Moreover, since all the high-end smartphones that made it on the market this year come with full HD displays, in order to stay competitive, the two companies will fit displays with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution.
In my opinion and according to the latest reports, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the HTC One Max will come with HSDPA, 42.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps; LTE-A, Cat4, 50 Mbps UL, 150 Mbps DL, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0 v4.0 with A2DP, EDR, LE, NFC module, microUSB v2.0 (MHL 2), USB On-the-go, USB Host, and an infra red port.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 however, is a power house and offers (if the rumors are true), as expected, great specs: a full High Definition display, 3 GB of RAM and an of course the company’s S-pen. It seems, at least according to reports, that HTC and Samsung will begin their battle for the best phablet on the market sometime during the next quarter, when both phablets are rumored to be released.
