HTC One Max leaked with fingerprint scanner to rival iPhone 5S

Is HTC taking on Apple with a fingerprint scanner?

HTC's One Max phablet has been leaked again, this time with a fingerprint scanner on board.

We saw no sign of the rumoured HTC One Max smartphone at IFA but the device has been shown online in photos. The leak, via Android Community, gives us the best glimpse of the One Max yet and it's complete with a fingerprint scanner to rival the iPhone 5S.

The HTC One Max, codenamed the T6, has been rumoured for a while with an alleged 5.9 in screen. That would put it in competition with other phablet sized smartphones including the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z Ultra.

A previous rumour suggested that the HTC One Max would be powered by a 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2 GB of RAM but the generally accurate evleaks says otherwise.

"Contrary to prior reports, HTC One max is powered by a Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 (4 x 1.7GHz)." Tweeted the leaker.

Other specifications include 16 GB of internal storage, an Ultrapixel rear camera, a 2.1 Mp front camera and unlike other HTC One phones, a microSD card slot.

An HTC One-style tablet has also been spotted but it's unclear when this, along with the HTC One Max, will be unveiled by HTC.

The firm has plenty of competition from rivals including LG with its G2 and Apple with its iPhone 5S.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
