HTC One Max appears again in a series of photos

If all goes well, we might see HTC finally pull off the veil from the HTC One Max this week, which should finally put to rest all rumors of what the phablet will or will not have. But in the meantime, there's still plenty of room for some leaks like these bunch of photos showing off HTC's giant of a smartphone.

Despite the recent break between HTC and Beats Electronics, it seems as if the yet to be announced HTC One Max will include Beats Audio.

HTC and Beats officially part ways

There had been some talk back in August about how Beats Electronics was looking to get the remaining 25 percent stake still held by HTC. That discussion popped up in mid-August and while the details seemed solid at the time, the talk went quiet.

The HTC and Beats Electronics LLC partnership may soon be coming to an end. The details have yet to be officially announced by either company, however a recent report coming from The Wall Street Journal is talking about how Beats are looking to not only make the split from HTC, but also take on a new investor to push forward with some growth.

HTC turns down the music, gives back half of Beats Audio shares

HTC has turned down the music in what appears to be a scale back of their plans with the music company Beats Audio. I'd be lying if I said I was surprised, as I wasn't too sold on the idea to begin with. In what HTC is calling “a realignment of their business agreement” they've sold 25% of their 51% stake back to Beats, and now is no longer the majority stockholder.

HTC probably won’t include Beats headphones with future smartphones

If you're a big fan of Beats headphones, turn down your bass and listen for a minute. Though HTC has been making a lot of its investment and partnership with the Beats by Dr. Dre brand, it looks like they're going to be scaling back a bit, at least as far as pack-ins are concerned. That means no free Beats headphones with HTC smartphones, at least for the immediate future. HTC told Cnet that its research suggested that the headphones included with phone  like the HTC Sensation XL and Verizon's Rezound weren't a significant factor in their buying decisions, making it a fiscally responsible decision to do without them.
