Feature Packed 5.9-inch Oversized Smartphone With Rear Fingerprint Scanner
HTC today announced the HTC One max, a super-sized smartphone with a 5.9-inch 1080p FullHD screen with HTC Sense 5.5 and a new Fingerprint Scan feature. Smooth and efficient performance comes courtesy of a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor featuring a 1.7 GHz CPU. Its 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 3,300mAh embedded battery means this level of performance will last and last. Even the most intensive users will find the HTC One max is up to the challenge with the optional HTC Power Flip Case, a stylish 1,150mAh battery expansion for your HTC One max, which offers both protection and extra juice when you need it most.
The HTC One max’s built-in Fingerprint Scan feature located on the back of the device allows users to lock or unlock the screen and quickly launch up to three favorite applications by assigning an individual finger to each.
The HTC One max’s Sense 5.5 upgrade comes with a more social, personalized HTC BlinkFeed that you can further refine by customizable 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.
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 reactions 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.
Price and Availability
The HTC One max Smartphone will be available in Glacial Silver across the globe as early as mid-October 2013, and it will be available in the United States from Sprint and Verizon Wireless this holiday season. Price TBD.
