Earlier this month, the HTC One max became available on Sprint, and now the device has officially launched on Verizon Wireless, as well. It is priced at $299.99 with a two-year contract, $599.99 unsubsidized, or $25.22/month for those who opt to take advantage of Verizon’s Edge phone financing program.
Internally, the phone is not too different from the regularly-sized HTC One – it’s got a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz and 2GB RAM, although there are some nice differentiating features: namely, the huge 5.9-inch 1080p HD screen, a fingerprint scanner, a microSD card slot with support for cards up to 64GB in size, and a monstrous 3300mAh battery. The fingerprint scanner will actually allow users to unlock the screen and quickly launch three different applications according to how you “map” three different fingers.
It ships with Android 4.3 and Sense 5.5, but is expected to be upgraded to KitKat relatively soon.[Android Community]
