There’s been no shortage of leaks when it comes to HTC’s upcoming phablet, the One Max. We’ve had the opportunity to check out a number of pictures, including an early render, as well as images appearing to reveal the handset’s rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Most recently, we’ve been getting confirmation for the phone’s name. Today we have a couple new pics to add to the assortment we’ve already seen, comparing the One Max to some original Ones.
Update: Better imagery now available. Unfortunately, these shots are quite low resolution, so we’ve had to enlarge them just to get a usable size. That means there’s not much detail for us to make out, but we once again get to see what sure seems to be that fingerprint scanner. The square cutout for the scanner looks gray here; when we’ve seen leaks like that in the past, it appeared to be because the actual scanner itself wasn’t present, and we’ve also seen pics where the cutout was covered by black plastic. At this point, we’re not sure if that means that the scanner will be a last minute addition, much as one only came to iPhone 5S leaks towards the very end, or if it might not happen at all.
After being an IFA no-show, we’re curious to learn when HTC finally intends to launch the One Max. Will it be in just a matter of weeks, or could HTC be sitting on this guy until the holiday season?
