HTC One Max Release Date Rumored for Oct. 15

If the 4.7-inch HTC One seems too small for you, don’t fret. The Taiwan-based manufacturer is likely to launch its long-fabled HTC One Max as early as Oct. 15, according to new reports.

The Wall Street Journal has reported that HTC will release a 5.9-inch version of the One that will include a fingerprint scanner and maintain the same form factor of HTC’s current flagship. The company has also sent invitations for a press event on Oct. 18 in Taiwan, with a similar event taking place on Oct. 16 in Hong Kong. According to other sources such as Phone Arena and eprice, the global launch for the HTC One Max will take place on Oct. 15.

The invite appears to tease the addition of a fingerprint scanner– one of the most highly rumored features of HTC’s alleged phablet. The invite reads: “One finger opens up a big view. You’re invited to immerse in the sound with us.” This hints that not only will the One Max get a fingerprint scanner, but we can also expect some improvements to the One’s already superior audio.

Previous leaks have indicated that the One Max will sport a 1080p display, a 3,300 mAh battery and either a  2.3-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor or the 1.7-GHz 600 chip that powers the HTC One. The One Max is said to swap out the One’s aluminum body for a less-expensive aluminum and plastic housing, similar to the One Mini’s build. We’re hoping to learn more from HTC as the 15th approaches.
