HTC has shown throughout 2013 that it’s not afraid to take a paint brush to its One devices. Both the original One and the One mini have been re-released in several different hues. The Taiwanese company has neglected the One max, though, only selling the device in the same silver duds that it’s worn since October. The good news for phablet fans is that that’s finally changing; HTC has officially announced a new black version of the One max.
Revealed by HTC’s Hong Kong arm, the black One max sports an all-black, murdered out look that’s fairly similar to the black One and One mini. The device’s aluminum shell is entirely black as are is its bezel, plastic outer ring and fingerprint sensor. Outside of the new black paint job, this One max is the same as its silver sibling, sporting a 5.9-inch 1080p display and 1.7GHz quad-core processor.
The black HTC One max officially went on sale in Hong Kong earlier this week at a price of HK$6,198 ($799 USD). There’s no word yet on when or if the dark device will be released in other regions, but considering that HTC has offered the various colors of the One and One mini in several regions around the globe, there’s definitely a chance that the black One max could need a passport of its own at some point.
