HTC One Max toys with fingerprint sensor in leaked images

While it's not entirely unlikely that the HTC One Max (still not confirmed to exist in and of itself) would be delivered with a fingerprint scanner aboard, images appearing today appear slightly less finalized than past iterations. What we're seeing in the HTC One Max thus far is a test phone, one aimed at the "phablet" range of devices also being attacked at the moment by the Samsung Galaxy Note, Sony Xperia Z Ultra, and the Samsung Galaxy Mega - a 6.3-inch phone released internationally and just today confirmed for several USA-based carriers. Today's HTC One Max leak includes several pogo-pins for docked charging and a black block suggested by photo source ePrice as a fingerprint reading sensor.

Verizon HTC One release date set for September 5th [UPDATE: August 22nd!]

The Verizon HTC One has been tipped and tipped again - confirmed, suggested for release, then moved again - now the company has released an official teaser with September 5th attached. This release of the 4G LTE Verizon edition of the HTC hero phone has been long awaited - ever since it was first understood that, after a possible dismissal of the device due to their carrying of the DROID DNA, Verizon was rumored to have seen the positive reviews in the media of this device, letting HTC know right then and there that they'd want to work with the machine before the end of the year.

UPDATE: Verizon now confirms that the HTC One will be appearing for sale on the 22nd of August - how's that for a final drop?

Verizon HTC One release delayed again: here’s why

This week a roadmap of Verizon device releases has been leaked depicting yet another date change for the HTC One. If you thought that August 1st was too late, then continued to pull your hair out when an August 15th release date was leaked, you may very well want to just shave your head bald rather than continuing to pull your hair out in frustration, because the new roadmap leaked this week pushes the Verizon HTC One back to the end of this month.

HTC One X+ Android 4.2.2 software update leaked: BlinkFeed and Zoe aboard

HTC One X+ Android 4.2.2 software update leaked: BlinkFeed and Zoe aboard

It would appear that HTC isn't going to keep a selection of key software features from its 2013 HTC One lineup here in the present if one (unofficial) software leak for the HTC One X+ has anything to say about it. Though Engadget's chat with HTC suggests that this software update is not one sent by HTC on purpose, it does exist. And the possibility that HTC could send out something rather similar officially, rather soon, is very real.

HTC One Max may launch aside companion HTC Mini+ in UK

As HTC prepares to launch "big things" in the very near future, rumors of a dual-launch of two machines, one rather large and the other quite tiny, aim directly at the UK. The larger of these in the HTC One Max is tipped by Expert Reviews as quite possibly headed for a UK release right as the smaller companion machine we're speaking of here is placed on store shelves. The smaller device was known originally as the HTC Mini (not to be mistaken for our recently reviewed HTC One mini, the stand-alone smartphone.)

HTC One Max Robert Downey Jr full-length teaser appears [UPDATE]

While just a couple of bits and pieces were spilled yesterday, overnight it would appear that HTC made with the full-length video spot for their newest campaign entitled "Big Things Ahead." They also use the tag #HTChange, a single iteration of the multi-word collection of possibilities for what H.T.C. could stand for. It's also been suggested that this advertisement teases not only the HTC One Max, but the oncoming brand embodiment by Robert Downey Jr., Iron Man himself.
