HTC One Max phablet visits certification, release date to be October 15

Passing through the Chinese version of the FCC, the HTC One Max has been snapped again, getting ever closer to its release. The handset, naturally, resembles very much the One and One mini in terms of design, but adds that rear animal - a fingerprint scanner - that we are also seeing in Apple's new iPhone 5s.
The huge display, reportedly a 6-incher, gets officially shown, as well as the UltraPixel camera on the back and some sort of dock connectors on the side. The fingerprint sensor was already reported to be very accurate by a tester, so all that is left now is for HTC to unveil the phablet officially, and tell us excatly how it intends to put the unorthodox finger scanning technique to good use. The source mentions October 15th as the possible release date, which is not that far away.

I wouldn't buy another HTC product with somebody else's money. It'll never see kitkat and it still has that garbage camera!

Honestly this camera is great to me. Idk if you've actually used it but a lot of people disregard it because of the size. Its no different than any phone i've used be it 8mp 13mp or 4up and the low light is unbeatable.

That's only three weeks away. They haven't even officially announced it yet...and they haven't even sent out invites to the press for an announcement event. Even if they did an internet announcement today I don't think they could get it into the sales channels fast enough to stock stores by October 15th. Optimistically I do hope it is coming in October because we're switching to Verizon at the end of October and if this isn't out I'm going Galaxy Note 3. But that date speculation is way too hopeful.

Oct 15 is too close, they wouldve announced it already.. Their fingerprint scanner wont be ass accurate as the iphones. They should just save the techonology until it performs on par with the iphone
