HTC One Max Could Borrow iPhone 5S, Galaxy Note 3 Features



A new HTC One Max leak suggests that the device could borrow features from both the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Apple’s rumored iPhone 5S.

The HTC One Max is rumored to be a larger version of the HTC One and a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 competitor. Rumors suggest that the phone will boast a 5.9-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, Ultrapixel camera, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and perhaps a new version of Sense, Sense 5.5.

In addition to those features, a new leak from ETrade, complete with photos of the China Mobile version of the HTC One Max, suggests that it could come loaded with a fingerprint reader and a dual-camera mode for the device’s camera as well.

The photos don’t show the fingerprint reader in the flesh but it’s clear that the hole on the back of the phone is likely for a fingerprint reader, something that has been heavily rumored to be one of the key features on the iPhone 5S. A fingerprint reader would presumably provide extra security for iPhone 5S and HTC One Max owners and tie in with the software on both devices.

They also clearly show a piece of the HTC One Max software which appears to be similar to the dual-shot camera mode found on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the upcoming LG G2. The feature allows users to use both cameras simultaneously to take a photograph.

It’s also a feature that is likely to show up on the Galaxy Note 3 as Samsung typically outfits devices with its latest TouchWiz features. Both the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 have been rumored to be getting Galaxy S4 software features so it would be surprising to see the Galaxy Note 3 left out.

The HTC One Max may get a dual-camera mode like the Galaxy S4.

The HTC One Max seen here appears to be made out of plastic and it comes with a removable back and a microSD card slot. It’s unclear if those will be coming with the variants outside of China or if those will be exclusive to China’s HTC One Max. In China, the current HTC One boasts a microSD card slot and removable back while the U.S. model does not have either.

HTC’s new One Max has been pegged for arrival in the fourth quarter and it appears that it could arrive as late as October, or, about a month after Samsung announces the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, one of its main rivals. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 is expected to be released only a few weeks after its announcement on September 4th.

      Actually HTC and Apple have a cross license agreement in which they can use each others patents. Also HTC and Motorola both had finger print scanners on phones in 2011.

    “borrowing”, does that imply that the features will be returned? Did you know the One Max will also have a glass screen and a speaker? Are those features also rumored to be on the new iPhone or the Note 3? Maybe the Note 3 will “borrow” the One Max’s use of a battery? And lastly, a rumor that the One may possibly have features that 2 other rumored phones may possibly have….. really?

    Wow. So Apple is borrowing the finger print reader that was on my LG expo in 2010? More apple ‘innovation’ for you.

    As far as I’m concerned Everyone borrows features from another company it’s no surprise. HTC made the first ever touchscreen wireless mobile device I guess they should sue everyone for borrowing the whole phone.
