The HTC One XL was announced at MWC 2012. It is identical with the HTC One X, though the former is designed especially for non-US markets. More precisely, the HTC One XL is the LTE-enabled One X to be launched in Europe, where this network is not popular. However, till yesterday we had no accurate information as to when the phone would come and which mobile operator would launch it. Now everything is clear.
Vodafone and HTC have jointly announced the HTC One XL coming to Europe in early June. The first market where this handset will be released in is Germany. Vodafone Germany’s launch will be followed by Deutsche Telekom and O2 Germany. The unlocked model will cost around 659 Euros (roughly $836) and there will be no contract attached to the smartphone.
As to the One XL, the Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset with its four cores is replaced with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 clocked at 1.5GHz because the former doesn’t support LTE. The rest of features include a 4.7-inch 720p HD touchscreen, an 8MP camera, 32GB of native storage, 25GB of Dropbox memory, polycarbonate body and Android 4.0 ICS OS.
