New spy shots of HTC's forthcoming HTC One Max phone have appeared online, confirming two things; It's enormous and there's a fingerprint sensor stuck on the back.
The images, which come from Chinese social site Weibo, show that this pre-production model refers to itself under the development name HTC 8088. It's also much easier to get a sense of the scale of the thing when it's pictured in the real world, as commenter Chris pointed out in the post about the leaked renders: "How can you determine the size when there is nothing else in the picture for reference?." Now there is. We just need to know the age and size of the person those hands belong to.
There's been some debate about the internal hardware that'll sit inside its near-six-inch chassis, mind, with early reports suggesting the HTC One Max would run on a high-end Snapdragon 800 processor. However, renowned leaked EVLeaks suggests it's more likely to come with an ageing Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset.
Which, although still extremely capable, won't get Android nerds quite so excited. [Unwired View]
