Sprint may be the sole US carrier to support the unannounced HTC One Max, reports often correct source @evleaks.

Once known by its "T6" code name, the so-called HTC One Max is rumored to arrive in the coming weeks. Specifications are reported to include a quad-core 2.3GHz processor, a 5.9-inch 1080p HD display, an UltraPixel camera, 16GB internal storage, and 2GB RAM.

Early details indicated Android Key Lime Pie as the OS (or Android KitKat as it's now known), but version 4.3 Jelly Bean seems more likely for the handset. Rounding out the specs are a 3300mAh battery, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, and a microSD expansion card slot.

One particularly interesting rumor that carries new weight is integration of a fingerprint scanner on the backside -- which could be semi-similar to the one we just saw in Apple's new iPhone 5S.

It is unclear whether Sprint will be the lone carrier to provide support for the HTC One Max or if it will simply have a head start on the other providers. AT&T, for its part, has the exclusive on the HTC One Mini, so we know HTC is willing to play that game.
