HTC Malaysia has launched HTC One max, a supersized version of its flagship smartphone that includes a new fingerprint scan feature, which delivers an enhanced smartphone experience, said the Taiwan-headquartered mobile devices manufacturer.
"The addition of the HTC One max means that we now have an HTC One phone for everyone," said HTC Corporation chief executive officer, Peter Chou. "The family has been built on quality and game-changing innovations and the HTC One max is certainly no exception."
Chou said, "The upgrade to HTC Sense 5.5 [HTC's Android skin] will provide our most amazing mobile experience yet, with the HTC One max delivering the size and power required to do everything you want, and more, without compromise."
He said the device includes a 5.9" full HD1080p display, a high capacity 3300mAh embedded battery, and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor featuring a quad-core 1.7 GHz CPU. "The 16GB or 32GB onboard memory can be expanded thanks to a microSD card slot, with a 50GB of additional free Google Drive online storage being offered exclusively to HTC One max owners."
The built-in fingerprint scan feature, which is located on the back of the device, allows users to lock and unlock the screen and launch up to three favourite applications by assigning an individual finger to each, he said.
The HTC One max is available in Malaysia at all HTC retailers and selected mobile operators.
