Leaked HTC One Max picture shows off size, new hardware features

htc-one-max-side-by-side

The HTC One Max has been leaked in a handful of pictures, but this latest one gives us a very good idea of the handset’s size. The device is lined up with the HTC One and the One mini. The HTC One Max looks massive compared to the two other phones, but that’s to be expected due to the handset’s rumored 5.9-inch display. What’s more surprising is that the image shows off two hardware features on the back of the HTC One Max that have not yet been mentioned.

The first is a black panel below the camera. We could be looking at an infrared port or fingerprint scanner. The second looks to be a pin connection similar to what we’ve seen on the HTC One X, Nexus One and several other HTC devices. The┬ápin connection could be used for charging and automatic Bluetooth syncing for a desktop dock or car mount.

Do you think these minor hardware tweaks will help make the HTC One Max more appealing despire the handset’s massive size?

    Well, the biggest improvements would then be the s800, the larger screen, and the fingerprint scanner. I think that this just fits a different type of consumer; the HTC one I’m typing on seems like a perfect screen size for me.

    They should give it a 3D camera. It’s certainly got enough room for the necessary internals.

    Also, that picture just emphasizes how much I feel like HTC didn’t go far enough with the One Mini. If they’d shrunk the One down for the Mini as far as they enlarged it for the Max, keeping the same screen PPI (not resolution!) and other specs, it’d be a far more attractive alternative to the One. As it is, there’s barely any size difference worth mentioning.

    They need to release an updated HTC one with the max, with the same features.

    It better be packin’ a 3000+ mAH battery

  • surg3d

    That dark square on the back just looks jarring… I’m not sure I’d even use a fingerprint scanner unless it was somehow a much better implementation than what others have done in the past.

    Something blurry at the botton right of the HTC ONE MAX? Is it the stimulus pen?!!?

  • Sid Acidic

    that looks like a high-5-inch , something like 5.8 5.9 inches.
