HTC One Max rooted, fingerprint sensor proves accurate, camera features leak

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.
- Display 5.9" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 4 MP / 2.1 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core, 1700 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3300 mAh(25h 3G talk time)

Does the fingerprint scanner double as the power-button? Has HTC finally learned not to put it on the top of the device?

HTC one max is the device to consider now, the only problem was not sporting the SD 800 but from this leak it seems it will.

I'd like to see multitasking similar to Samsung and LG's devices. Heck, even the SGS III supports multiple windows, so HTC has no excuse to include windowed apps on their 5.9" device. If they do that, I can justify my irrational brand-loyalty to HTC and pick one up. If not I'll most likely go for the Note 3.

That would be a must. I use my computer just for simple tasks and yet my phone can do almost everything what my computer can but multitasking. When they make an option for simple but effective multitasking that would be like ewerything. And that is what tablets and phablets should be about. Sorry for my english

Why start a flame war, who cares, this is about the HTC One max that'll do battle with the Lumia 1520 and note 3. Whichever one you like is your choice along with everyone else, we all win, they're all gonna be fantastic devices. I'm glad that HTC and Nokia came out with an alternative to the Note 3 and seeing the SD 800 is reassuring.

"Were" or Where? Pathetic HTC Fanboy. Let me tell you this, that Htc One Max Phablet what ever is not going to be a best Unlike the Note 3 that Packs the advance specs that millions could ask for a Phablet. Still, Millions of people are waiting for the Note 3 to be release world wide.And I can't feel anyone here or even in other tech sites waiting for this except FEW Htc fanboys. And oh by the way, I'm from New Jersey USA. Many people here likes Samsung,Apple and LG Products. Sorry for your beloved HTC. lol

Never really doubted it would have the 800 chip, so once I saw the specs for the note, I knew that the Max was going to be the phone for me. Same specs combined with better build quality and apperance. This beast will be an awesome piece of hardware. Now hurry up and release it HTC, I have been holding my upgrade for months.

Ill have to admit, fingerprint security is pretty neat idea for both Android and Apple. The thing they will have to ensure is the speed of accessing a device since users on average will use their smartphone anywhere from 100-200 times a day.
