HTC One Max rooted, fingerprint sensor proves accurate, camera features leak
HTC's first phablet, the One Max, is fast approaching, and numerous leaks are now pouring from a tester, with the design being compared to the Note II and Note 3 already.
That same tester managed to also root the device, as you can see in the slideshow below, and has posted two screenshots from the camera interface, confirming it will sport panoramic mode and beauty shot with three levels of blemish removal, as well as the ability to record HDR video, hinting once again that we will see a Snapdragon 800 powering the handset.
The tester also confirmed that the intriguing square we see on the back , just below the camera module, is indeed a fingerprint sensor, saying that he had even used it for a few days, and the scanner proved accurate: "Spent a few days HTC one Max fingerprint recognition rate is very high, there was no awkward situation," he wrote.
It seems to be a capacitive touch sensor, just like Apple's new Touch ID technology works in the iPhone 5s, so barring any patent issues, HTC will be sporting the second handset with that technology when it announces the One Max later on in the year.
