HTC One Max with finger print reader?
The HTC One is a great smartphone, some would even say the smartphone of the year that has brought a lot of much needed vitality back into the HTC brand which has been struggling for the past few year due the onslaught and dominance of Apple and Samsung’s line of smartphone.
And now in an upcoming event, the company is widely expected to unveil a version of its flagship smartphone; HTC One Max, which would be to HTC One what Samsung Galaxy Note series is to Samsung Galaxy S series. The online community has been waiting for the arrival of the upcoming phone with baited breath or at least some leaks that could provide us with a first look at the device.
A picture of the HTC One Max that featured the front of the device and showed off its size relative to a 4-inch smartphone was released a few weeks back but now a more interesting batch of photos has arrived that provide a much more in-depth look. These photos were made available by a Taiwanese site by the name of ePrice which has been the source of many a leaks related to upcoming smartphones.
The photos feature an unusually large smartphone that looks a lot like the HTC One, but that is not the interesting part. The most interesting part of these photos is the presence of a fingerprint reader under the rear camera of the phone. Another photo of the HTC One Max in which the device’s back cover is removed apparently confirms that the small thing on the back is in fact a fingerprint reader and not a sticker of some kind.
In addition to this, the pictures depicting the software part of the phone also have a fingerprint reader settings icon present in them.
This will make the HTC One Max the first smartphone to boast a fingerprint reader as rumors regarding the presence of the reader in the LG G2 turned out to be unfounded. Still, it’s all pure speculation at this point as we still don’t have anything official at this time. We will keep you updated if anything turns up.[Via: Android Authority]
