Less than a month after rumors began circulating that HTC was building a phablet to take on Samsung's Galaxy Note series, images of the purported device have popped up on a Taiwan Web site.

While the current HTC One is powered by the Snapdragon 600, the HTC One Max will sport a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, according to the post. The One Max also features the same UltraPixel and 2.1-megapixel front-facing cameras as the One.

Rendered images of an AT&T branded HTC One Mini have surfaced, suggesting that Ma Bell may soon offer the new smartphone.
No U.S. carrier has officially announced plans to support the One Mini; however, the larger HTC One can be found at the top four wireless providers. I wouldn't be surprised if an official announcement of the small model comes very, very soon.

It's been quite a week for news that starts with the word "smart."
Eric Schmidt was caught last week holding the rumored Moto X smartphone, which opened the flood gates of speculation: When will it come out? Who will carry it? What're the specs?

The large infographic doesn't explicitly name the upcoming smartphone, yet it's hard to imagine any other reason for the post. Citing a desire to "bring the One experience to as many people as possible," it feels as if we're on the eve of an announcement. Rather than tech talk, however, we're treated to references to "Game of Thrones," Donatalla Versace, Spud Webb, and a Trinidad Moruga … Read more
