According to a report from Bgr, Best Buy and Sprint accidently made a “slip-up” and announced the debut of the smartphone before HTC had a chance to release an official statement.
In a press release, Sprint stated, “Just in time for the holidays, Sprint will launch HTC One max this Friday, Nov. 15 for $249.99 with a new line or eligible upgrade and two-year service agreement or $25.00 per month with Sprint One Up (excluding taxes).”

A fingerprint scanner similar to Apple’s iPhone 5S will also be on the new device. HTC stated in a press release, “”A new Fingerprint Scan feature takes convenience to a new level while acclaimed features including HTC BlinkFeed, HTC Zoe and HTC BoomSound, combined with the new HTC Sense 5.5, which are all enhanced to continue to deliver the best overall smartphone experience, now on a larger screen.”
