HTC's long-rumored One Max smartphone is finally official and sports a 5.9-inch 1080p display, as well as a fingerprint scanner on the rear.

The phone has the same metallic style as the smaller HTC One, but will stretch your palms with its enormous dimensions.

It also has the same 4-megapixel Ultrapixel technology as its smaller sibling, while on the inside there's a 1.7GHz quad-core processor. Like the iPhone 5S, the One Max has a fingerprint scanner, but unlike Apple's mobile, this one is located around the back, by the phone's camera.
