HTC offers larger phone, with fingerprint sensor

HTC One Max

HTC is introducing a larger version of its popular HTC One phone.

The new HTC One Max has one feature unavailable on the smaller models: a fingerprint identification sensor similar to that on Apple's new iPhone 5S. It's an optional way to unlock a without using a four-digit passcode. 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.
