(Pocket-lint) - According to Pocket-lint sources and more recently an invitation or two to events abroad, the HTC One Max is expected to be officially unveiled next Tuesday - 15 October. So it makes sense that somebody somewhere in the world is testing or using one, perhaps several people. And it subsequently makes sense that somebody with a sharp eye and camera to hand could potentially get a snap of it in action.

That is seemingly what has happened, with a user of Chinese social network Weibo, zacjasonr, posting a picture they claim was taken over the shoulder of someone using the new HTC phablet.

If true, the 6-inch device looks huge - certainly in the hands of the woman using it. If not, it's a rather good Photoshop job.

HTC One Max rumours point to it having an actual screen size of 5.9-inches, a Full HD resolution, 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM. We expect to find out for real come the 15 October.

If that is the date it will be announced in the UK - some suggest that a launch in HTC's homeland of Taiwan could be two or more days later - you can bet that Pocket-lint will bring you all the news as it happens.
