Unlike Apple's version, however, the Max can be programmed to automatically open one of three favorite apps, depending on which finger is used.

The Max has a screen that measures 5.9 inches diagonally. That compares with the 4.7 inches on the standard version and the 4.3 inches on the HTC One Mini.

HTC Corp. says Verizon and Sprint Corp. will sell the HTC One Max in the U.S.
