The HTC One Max refuses to stay away from the spotlight, and the giant handset has posed for the camera yet again, sitting next to the HTC One and its mini cousin.
With Apple introducing a fingerprint sensor on the new iPhone, having one on flagship devices is likely to become a trend, and HTC seems most prepared to follow in Apple’s footsteps at this point. The new images once again show what is expected to be a fingerprint scanner on the back of the One Max, though in what way and how well its functionality will be implemented isn’t public knowledge just yet.
The leaked images don’t have any new details accompanying them, but they do give us an idea of how big the One Max is compared to the company’s current flagship. Naturally, with a 5.9-inch screen on the former and a 4.7-inch unit on the latter, the difference is sizable, pretty much like the difference between a Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Mega 6.3. Basically, you’ll have to kick out the phrase “one-handed usage” out of your vocabulary if you plan on buying this monstrous device.
The HTC One Max is expected to feature the beastly Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, all the flashy features of the HTC One such as an UltraPixel camera, BoomSound speakers, and BlinkFeed homescreen, a microSD slot, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, with version 5.5 of HTC’s Sense skin. Whether stylus support is included is still a mystery, though for HTC’s sake, I hope it is, or the One Max won’t be making much a dent in the sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 and Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra.
