Rooted HTC One Max Shows Camera and Verifies Fingerprint Scanner

September 22, 2013 - Written By Cory McNutt

The HTC One Max has been popping up all over the place and even though we have no launch date, it hasn’t stopped our friends at weibo.com from sending out some pictures for us to digest and learn more about the capabilities of this HTC Phablet.  The other day we were treated to the shot above, where the HTC One Max is compared in size to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Note 3, and as you can see it seems to tower over the Notes, even though the screen size is only 2/10 of an inch larger than the Galaxy Note 3.

Some new photos today, from the same tester, show an HTC One Max that the tester/leaker was able to root and show us a nice shot of the front with the phone actually running.

The tester was able to send a couple shots of the camera interface, claiming that it will have the capability to record HDR video.  It will also have the feature called Beauty Face built-in which will have three levels of blemish removal to touch up a photo…I wish they had a Skinny Body option to shave off a few pounds.  It will also have Panoramic capabilities and the dual camera setup that should allow you to take a picture with both cameras at the same time.  Unfortunately, it is all in Chinese and only a few words were translated for us at this time…perhaps another leak.

The tester was also able to verify the square spot directly below the camera is indeed a Fingerprint Sensor and was able to use it for a few days and said, “Spent a few days HTC one Max fingerprint recognition rate is very high, there was no awkward situation.”  It appears to be a capacitive touch sensor, much like the Apple iPhone 5s, so barring any court cases, the HTC One Max will be the second new phone with a fingerprint sensor.

This is all rumor and speculation at this point, and there are few details about the specs, although it is looking like it will not have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, but the 600 model.  It also appears that it will not sport a stylus like the Galaxy Note series.  With leaks coming out almost daily we may actually have this HTC One Max nailed down in a couple weeks.
