The upcoming HTCflagship smartphone is rumored to be unveiled in mid October, although HTCis yet to send out invites for a HTCOne Max media event.

Chinese social networking site Weibo and Android Central’s sources point to an October 15 announcement. Assuming that’s the actual date of the event, we’re probably going to see the HTCOne Max – name yet to be officially confirmed – hit stores in time for Christmas.

Furthermore, Taiwanese site ePrice, which has provided plenty of HTCOne Max-related details in the past, says the handset may be released on October 17, and that the super-sized phone may cost as much as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in the region (NT$23,900).

The HTC One Max has starred in a variety of leaks and rumors in the past few months, being HTC’s purported alternative to Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3.

Most recently, the HTCOne Max has been spotted in some images with China’s TENAA (the country’s FCC-like certification agency), where one feature of the upcoming device has apparently been confirmed, namely its fingerprint scanner placed on the back of the handset, under the camera (see following image).

Interestingly, various rumors suggest that the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat will also be unveiled in mid-October, so we’re certainly looking forward to next month, assuming all these rumors come true.
