Posted October 14, 2013 at 5:53pm by iClarified
HTC has unveiled the HTC One Max with a built-in fingerprint scanner and 5.9-inch 1080p display. The fingerprint scanner is located on the back of the device and lets users unlock or lock the device quickly. It also allows users to launch up to three favorite applications by assigning a different finger to each app.

"The addition of the HTC One max means that we now have an HTC One phone for everyone. The family has been built on quality and game-changing innovations and the HTC One max is certainly no exception," said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. "The upgrade to HTC Sense 5.5 will provide our most amazing mobile experience yet, with the HTC One max delivering the size and power required to do everything you want, and more, without compromise."

The full press details can be found below.

Big and powerful
The HTC One max's 5.9" full HD1080p display is perfect for enjoying photos, videos and movies on the go. Smooth and efficient performance comes courtesy of a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor featuring a quad-core 1.7 GHz CPU enabling jaw-dropping performance, ultra vivid videos and booming sound. Whether you're watching videos in stunning HD, playing games or checking out what's hot online, the HTC One max sounds amazing, looks sharp and keeps working when you need it.

The 16GB or 32GB onboard memory can be expanded thanks to a microSD card slot, with a massive 50GB of additional free Google Drive online storage being offered exclusively to HTC One max owners.

The large 3300mAh embedded battery means that this level of performance will last and last. Even the most intensive users will find the HTC One max is up to the challenge thanks to the optional HTC Power Flip Case, a stylish 1150mAh battery expansion for your HTC One max which offers both protection and extra juice when you need it most.

Maximum convenience at your fingertips
The average person checks their phone multiple times a day, so the HTC One max welcomes a new era of convenience and advanced functionality thanks to a built-in Fingerprint Scan feature. Located on the back of the device, the fingerprint scanner allows users to lock or unlock the screen and quickly launch up to three favourite applications by assigning an individual finger to each.

More content than ever before
The HTC One max's Sense 5.5 upgrade comes with a more social, personalised HTC BlinkFeed that can be further refined by customisable topic categories and new integration with premium content providers including Instagram and Google+. Up to 120 articles can also be downloaded for offline viewing, making BlinkFeed even better for snacking on information wherever and whenever you are.

Ultimate imaging
Featuring HTC's UltraPixel camera technology, HTC Zoe mode, that brings your photos to life, and a 2.1MP front-facing camera, the HTC One max will capture stunning photos and full HD 1080p videos whether you're the photographer, the subject or both. Dual Capture means you can now snap memorable moments and your reaction to them in one extraordinary photo or video by simultaneously shooting with the front and rear cameras.

Improved imaging is also introduced through Video Highlights, which combines your photos and videos to create a mini movie complete with the soundtrack and visual theme of your choice. And with the HTC One max, your Video Highlights can now be any length you want.

Design at its Best
Available in Glacial Silver, the HTC One max shares the same premium design credentials as the rest of the HTC One family, providing an all round exceptional experience.

Global Availability
The HTC One max will begin rolling out across the globe from mid - end October. See specific regions for details.

I'm an Android Fan, do they have Penile print scanner?
Yup! - October 15, 2013 at 11:08am
They do, but in your case you also have to buy the optional microscope attachment.

If they wanted to innovate, they should make the whole phone body a finger print scanner. At least Apple innovated by putting it in the home button. HTC's implementation just makes it another sensor on another new location on the phone. People will accidentally touch the camera lens I tell you.

Exactly, this means this scanner is exactly like moto's except you just touch instead of slide!
iFanboy - October 15, 2013 at 12:44am
Fingerprint scanner... Yada yada... Move on. Just thinking 6" screens...how long it will be before could answer a call on a notebook/ laptop?! Look like a real dork lifting one of them to the ear!!
gamerscul9870 - October 14, 2013 at 8:46pm
You on the other hand are just covering for steve, just like moto's phone, it too is on the back but on the 5s it's on a button! The only copy here is you trying to believe others of what they said and htc waits for apple to take it but this scanner is related to moto's version!

Not bad, just sucks it has the SD card slot, not really a phablet fan, tried my galaxy mega for a bit but just felt retarded using it, but maybe this might be ok I guess. Also sucks it only comes in silver, it was a bitch enough to make my Tmobile Htc one M7 Red, well see though I guess.

Fingerprint scanner? Seriously?
m_thoroughbred - October 14, 2013 at 7:27pm
And yet some Android users claim Apple is behind.
Raul - October 14, 2013 at 7:01pm

Did mommy tell you that you have any sense? She lied to you!
gamerscul9870 - October 14, 2013 at 6:20pm
Fricking copters, apple send the lawsuit!
