New HTC One Two designs have leaked, with the prematurely unveiled body suggesting the upcoming phone will support an integrated fingerprint scanner.
With the oversized spinoff HTC One Max having launched late last year with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor in tow, leaked images of the upcoming HTC One follow-on have suggested that the biometric sensor will now be introduced to the flagship model.
Although far from official, the leaked HTC One Two images show cases for the upcoming handset. As well as the customary cut-outs for the rear-mounted camera and integrated LED flash, the accessory shows a large hole for what is believed to be an inbuilt fingerprint scanner.
While the iPhone 5S plays host to a TouchID fingerprint sensor, seamlessly built into the phone’s home button, the HTC One Two appears set to boasts its own finger reader in a more invasive manner.
Although the Taiwanese manufacturer has yet to offer any official word on the device, it is widely expected that the HTC One Two, a device also known as the HTC M8, will launch in mid-February, just days before MWC 2014 kicks off in Barcelona.
With the original HTC One having lined up with a 4.7-inch display, the second-gen option has been mooted to run a larger 5-inch, Full HD panel alongside a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat OS and a new Ultrapixel camera.
Recent HTC One Two rumours have hinted that the flagship phone will sport a refined metal unibody design, with the fingerprint sensor looking set to sit high up in the centre of the phone’s body. Elsewhere it has been suggested the phone will run 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM and a 2900mAh Lithium-Ion battery.
