HTC continues its quest of reversing its downtrodden fortunes as it announces its latest phablet. The 5.9-inch HTC One Max comes with the same aluminum exterior as the company’s flagship handset, the HTC One, except that the Max sports a fingerprint scanner at the back.

Before our readers go “iPhone 5S copycat” on the HTC One Max, its fingerprint scanner does not work as a button unlike Apple’s latest smartphone. It can also accomodate multiple fingerprints, even from multiple people if the user prefers. The prints can be used to unlock the handset, as well as perform specific functions like launching Gmail.

Another feature the HTC One Max has that its smaller cousin lacks is the removable back cover, which pops out easily by pressing the lone button on the left side. Beneath the back cover is SIM card slot and a microSD card slot that allows users to expand this smartphone’s memory up to 64GB.

Other than that, the rest of the specs would remind you of the HTC One. It comes with 16GB or 32GB of internal memory, a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, a 5.9-inch screen with 1080p resolution, 2GB of RAM, an ultrapixel camera at the back with Smart Flash and full HD video recording capability, and a 2.1-megapixel front camera (also with full HD video recording function).

The HTC One Max also features NFC, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and DLNA connectivity options. This device comes with HTC Sense 5.5 UI, Android 4.3, dual microphones, an infrared blaster at the top, and a 3,300mAh battery.

The One Max phablet will be available initially in the US, with Sprint and Verizon distributing it. HTC promises of a global rollout as early as this week.
