Report claims new leaked photo shows ‘HTC One Max’ with fingerprint sensor


We’ve been hearing more and more rumors about the ‘HTC One Max’, a variant of the company’s flagship HTC One that will sit on the high end of the family with a 5.9-inch display and compete in the oversized smartphone market with Samsung’s Galaxy Mega and others. While it sports the same overall design of the HTC One, new images of the device’s backside show some unique hardware features. ePrice today posted the image above that shows the HTC One Max next to the HTC One and HTC Mini. Curiously, the HTC One Max appears to have an extra sensor underneath the rear camera. The report claims it’s a fingerprint sensor, but there’s always a possibility it could be an IR blaster or a different sensor. The image also appears to show what looks like a pin connector on the lower right corner that could allow for wireless dock charging.

Previously rumored specs for the device include a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor and 3,300 mAh battery. Today’s report claims the device could hit the market as soon as October.
