HTC One Family

If your family is anything like mine, you took annual family portraits.  I never liked these very much.  It always took forever to get everyone lined up just right and I always just felt like it looked kind of funny at the end (although they’re fun to look back and laugh at now).  While I wasn’t the biggest fan of those kinds of family portraits, this here is a family portrait I really like.  What you see in the photo above is the HTC One family striking a pose for the camera.  From left to right you have HTC One Mini, HTC One, and HTC One Max.

While photos of these devices aren’t really new, there is something very interesting to see on the big guy, Mr. HTC One Max.  You see that black square beneath the camera?  Well according to ePrice, the site that posted the photo, that’s a fingerprint sensor.  It’s definitely been a while since I’ve seen one of those on a phone.  The last one I remember sporting such a “feature” was the Motorola Atrix, and that didn’t always work so well.

Technology has evolved though so chances are this one will work much better than the one found on the Atrix (assuming they include this on their final product).  And in a increasingly competitive phablet market, you need little things like this to differentiate yourself from the competition, so good on HTC for giving it a try.

[Exclusive] HTC One Max adding fingerprint authentication, the end of October launch, etc. Well you wait?

One other minor thing to note about the Max is that it looks to be sporting some charging pins on the right edge.  HTC has used these pins in the past but their current flagship, the HTC One, lack such an option.

This phone is still on my list of possible next phablet so I’ll be keeping a close eye on all these developments!
