Although no official launch date has been given for HTC’s new phablet, a Best Buy webpage suggests the HTC One Max will be available on Friday. It is priced at $249 with a two-year contract, and is available now for pre-order.

The Max has the same 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 chip as the phone on which it’s based, the HTC One, with a 5.9″ full HD1080p display, twin stereo speakers, 3300mAH battery, (optional) capacitive stylus and fingerprint scanner. Storage is 16GB or 32GB, with an SD card slot for expansion.
