We’re not sure when HTC will launch the One Max phablet, but that time is coming pretty soon, judging by the increasing number of leaks related to the device. Today we get one more, this time involving a press render of the unit, coming from China.


The 5.9 inch phablet has leaked a lot over the past months and we were expecting it at IFA 2013 last month, but that didn’t pan out. New renders published on Weibo confirm the specs we already know, such as the Ultrapixel camera, 1.7 GHz CPU (Snapdragon 800 most likely), 16 GB of ROM and a 3300 mAh battery.


The One Max has previously leaked with Verizon branding, but there’s no word on the official US launch. The second imagine in this article is what interests us the most, since it seems to show expanded functionality for the fingerprint scanner, beyond the regular scanning use. It shows the ability to launch various features and apps, just by scanning fingers passing over the back touch area.

A certain digit will be associated to an app or feature or you’ll simply swipe any finger past the touchpad to take pics or navigate web pages. Useful? We’ll see…
