Sprint recently recently announced the availability of two of its three 4G LTE phones, the LG Viper and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus for April 22. Not to be left behind, AT&T is expected to release its flagship 4G LTE device, the HTC One XL, as early as this week, according to BGR. As reported, AT&T is expected to announce the availability today with a release to follow in five to seven days.
As a reminder, the specifications of the HTC One XL are:
- Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.0
- 1.5 Ghz Qualcomm dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor
- 4.7″ S-LCD 2 display
- 720×1280 resolution, 312 ppi
- 8MP rear camera with HTC ImageSense, 2MP front camera
- 1GB RAM
- 1800 mAH
Unlike the complete makeover that turned the HTC One X into the HTC EVO 4G LTE for Sprint, the AT&T version is largely similar to the international release. The only notable difference is the swapping of the quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor (found in the international version) with a dual-core Snapdragon S4, to provide 4G LTE capability. Like the international version, the HTC One XL won’t have a microSD slot, but will include the 25GB Dropbox storage for free.
Pricing and release information will be available with the official announcement expected soon.
