HTC One Max official: 5.9in 1080p display, Snapdragon 600, fingerprint scanner

HTC One Max official: 5.9in 1080p display, Snapdragon 600, fingerprint scannerWell, into the virtual trash go the 250 words I wrote this morning about the latest round of leaked HTC One Max pics, as the phone has only gone and launched earlier than expected. Mother f…

The HTC One Max arrives almost entirely as predicted, so it’s essentially a larger take on the HTC One flagship with a fingerprint scanner on the back.

Diving straight into HTC One Max specs, we have a 5.9in 1080p display, making it the Taiwanese manufacturer’s biggest phone to date. At that size, it’ll go head-to-head with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z Ultra.

As for the widely leaked fingerprint scanner, it sits – as expected – below the rear UltraPixel camera, the theory being that your finger rests there naturally, so the phone will unlock – almost automatically – when you pick it up.

In terms of storage, the HTC One Max will come with either 16 or 32GB on board, and there’s good news in the form of a microSD slot, something that was sorely absent from the HTC One.

Other HTC One Max specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, front stereo BoomSound speakers, Jelly Bean Android 4.3, Sense 5.5, a 2MP front camera, and a non-removable 3,300mAh battery.

There’s no specific word on an HTC One Max UK release date or price just yet, but inevitably we’ll learn more as the dust settles.

What do you think? Too big? Too HTC? Or just the phone you’ve been waiting for?

Finger print scanner is bad. Biometrics are precious and should not be used in this way. If you lose your phone, somone can hack the phone and your finger print is compromised.

I'm willing to bet this decision was entirely due to money; they've already bought X amount of 600s, and either they had surplus to the One production, or its simply cheaper than 800s for negligible real-world difference.

Can't help but feel that this is just another copy paste of the One, but where the One Mini scaled it down, this just scales it up.

Your fingerprints are ON the phone.... If someone wants your prints, you know...
Have you heard of PRISM? The NSA?
