The HTC One max has been officially announced and if you want to get your hands on one, it looks like Vodafone will be your only option. The network announced via its official UK blog that the HTC One max will be a "Vodafone exclusive from launch".

The post also suggests you won't have to wait long to buy the device, concluding with: "It'll be available to buy from Vodafone this week. Stay tuned for more news very soon."

We suspect there will be a few more plans available when it comes to launch date, but for now, the carrier has said the HTC One max will be available on a 24-month Vodafone Red 4G-ready plan from £49 upfront for the handset, along with £47 a month.

This will give you 2GB of data a month, as well as with Spotify Premium or Sky Sports Mobile TV, but you can increase your data allowance to 6GB if you sign up before 31 October.

The HTC One max sports a 5.9-inch 1920 x 1080p display, 3300mAh battery and comes with a fingerprint scanner and microSD slot, along with HTC Sense 5.5.
