HTC may unveil its supersized HTC One Max within just a few weeks.

Reportedly outfitted with a 5.9-inch screen, the HTC One Max will be unveiled on October 15 -- at least, that's the information from Chinese social network Weibo, as spotted by blog site Phone Arena.

Just this week, photos of the One Max popped up on the Web site of China's TENAA, which is responsible for certifying such devices. Those photos suggest that the phone has received regulatory approval in China, according to Phone Arena.

Based on the photos and other recent reports, the HTC One Max will offer a 5.9-inch 1,080p HD display, a quad-core 2.3GHz processor, 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, and an UltraPixel camera. The phone will also reportedly include its own fingerprint scanner, likely similar to the one Apple introduced with the iPhone 5S.

Known leaker @evleaks recently said that Sprint will carry the phone when it makes its US debut.
