Leaked images of HTC's upcoming One Max show what appears to be a fingerprint scanner. The pictures come from Chinese social network Sina Weibo, and show the huge HTC One Max with the back of its case removed. The fingerprint scanner sits between the device's sim slot and its camera. That placement suggests that, unlike the iPhone's thumb-reading scanner, One Max users will be scanning their forefingers.
The existence of the scanner has been purportedly confirmed by Verizon retail staff who have used the phone during training sessions. That confirmation comes with pictorial evidence: poster Jeremy Kessous on Android Central's forums providing images of the phone passed to him by a friend working for Verizon.
