Alleged HTC One XXL specs outed in leaked screenshot and video, offers quad-core and LTE too
The display on the HTC One XXL is said to have the same 720p resolution seen on the HTC One X (we guess one size fits all there) and the camera will be the same 8MP shooter that went skydiving with the HTC One X. The doubling of RAM to 2GB matches what the U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S III is carrying, surely an attempt to compete with the newest Samsung flagship.
We must confess to having our salt shakers out on this one, though, so while the specs seem tremendous and there is the Samsung Galaxy S III to compete with, we would like to hear something more official from HTC.

Yumm.. How about Lemon Drizzle Cake? It sounds better.

It cannot be "Hot Chocolate" because "H" is already in use by Honeycomb. It'll be more like something that starts with an L, M, or N.

If someone was that bothered by a 'new and improved' version of their phone coming out they'd literally never be in the position to buy a new one. It's just a fact of life that there's always going to be something new a month or two down the line.
I have to stay positive though, I bought a Lumia... ha ha
7. GuiltyBystander (Posts: 199; Member since: 05 Mar 2012)
I know that, if someone keeps waiting for the new and improved he will keep waiting forever but can't companies at least wait like 6 months to release something new and not every couple of months?

Just switch to Verizon, then you won't have to worry about that. They release a new smartphone about once every six months. It's awesome to watch the other big 3 release phone after phone while you have the comfort of knowing you're stuck with your outdated bezel monster. Their latest 'new' flagship is known as the RAZR MAXX. Maybe you've heard of it. Same damn phone as RAZR, just has a bigger battery. Same low screen resolution. Same clunky old processor and huge bezel. Sold yet? The RAZR was released over 7 months ago. Hurry the f*ck up with the GS3, VZ. Just sayin'.

Verizon has been pretty slow this year, with no answer back to the One X/Evo LTE, no Galaxy S3 phone slated yet, etc. They were hella busy last year though, they released new phones like every month (droid bionic, droid 3, motorola razr, galaxy nexus, all within the span of a couple months).
40. pandambaba (Posts: 28; Member since: 18 Feb 2012)
the bionic to the razr pissed me the f**k off because it's like you could've released the slimmed down version from the getgo but, you hype up a brick for all of 2 months just to release the razr? really?
42. BattleBrat (Posts: 1062; Member since: 26 Oct 2011)
I have the RAZR, and now ICS, Clunky? Bezel monster? No, this phone is a work of art, and it will kick the living s*** out of a Nexus. And I get 2-2.5 days battery life, and that's with a RAZR 1 not the maxx.
15. nicholassss (Posts: 348; Member since: 10 May 2012)
I wait until my phone is almost completely outdated, and hardly runs.
then i stretch it until something sweet comes out. then i use the 14 day verizon return policy to get any better phone that comes out in the next 2 weeks or just incase i totally hate the one i bought. ;)

If this HTC XXL really impresses me I'm crazy enough to buy one of these unlocked too.
These phone are coming out TO DAMN FAST!! lol
5. Mitchel (Posts: 228; Member since: 25 May 2012)
This will be a beast once it was released. But G-Note 2 will put this in it's place come October..
6. Tjey007 (Posts: 86; Member since: 22 May 2012)
Damn...its been only weeks i got my S3..already m feeling outdated bcz of these phones....why u no understand HTC,Sam that i dont have a duck which lay money ..i mean golden eggs..:(

By pure processing power this thing should be leaps ahead of SIII.
Quad core S4?
Even the S IV will be lucky with specs like that.
Hah, can't wait to see the excuse remixfa will come up against this one, if true!
Snapdragon will be the most powerful chipset appearing in phones this year, just like I said.

I don't know, but Adreno 320 is quite disappointed. GL Benchmark show that it's in the middle of Mali-400Mp (in GS3) and PowerVR SGX543Mp4 (in the new Ipad), and the CPU power of quad-core Krait is quite the same as Exynos 4412 (from Antutu benchmark).
16. Mitchel (Posts: 228; Member since: 25 May 2012)
Did you know what you're talking about?
Exynos 4412 Quad > Crapdragon S4 Dual> Tegra 3 Quad
Exynos 5250 > Crapdragon S4 Quad > Tegra sucks again.
24. skymitch89 (Posts: 1044; Member since: 05 Nov 2010)
And by the time they come out with a quad-core S4 that supports LTE, Samsung will have come out with an Exynos-Quad that has better performance than the current one and will also support LTE.
30. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3949; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
The S4 Quad will support LTE, and Samsungs next processor release will be an Exynos A-15 dual. Whether it will support LTE is unknown, considering they didn't put LTE in the first Exynos dual or the quad, it's doubtful.
35. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
you are such a fanboy troll... good lord.
the S4 is pretty tied with the T3. Neither are as strong as the exynos quad.
Do a little math. the Exynos is what.. 30%-40% more powerful than the S4 by most benchmarks. If you add 2 more cores, your adding probably about 50% power. IF that holds true, the CPU will be just a smidge faster than the current exynos quad.
The exynos A15 dual and quad (the A15 dual's CPU will be nearly the same as the A9 quad CPU, but the A15 quad will have the same roughly 50% power increase, which easily tromps the S4's) will be out at the same time period, both with the new mali 6xx GPUs. On paper, the mali 600 series blows away the Adreno 300 series.
So if all that holds true, Exynos 5250/5450 will still be the kinds of the jungle by a good margin.
But at that point... does it matter? They will both be doing nearly Xbox360 graphix on the phone. These numbers games are for geeks like me and a few others. For regular people anything that's out now or coming out is more than plenty.
37. hung2900 (Posts: 779; Member since: 02 Mar 2012)
The thing I mentioned is the GL benchmark and Antutu Benchmark. From the score of Antutu Benchmark, quad S4 and exynos 4412 are the same, ok?
Im not Exynos or quadcore fanboy, but Im a Qualcomm hater.
43. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5561; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
it wouldn't just be a 50% increase. the new S4 Pro would add a new pair of cores and a much needed and significant improvement in the GPU department from the Adreno 320. it would really be around a 75%-80% increase. the Exynos 4412 would be as comparable to the Pro as the S4 is to the 4412 but that doesn't matter because like you said the Exynos 5 and the OMAP5 should be there to compete but if Samsung doesn't get on it and bring LTE support they'll be out of the game in the US completely unless we were comparing Wi-Fi Only Tablets. if that were to happen it would just be between the S4 Pro and the OMAP5 which i'm certain the ladder would more than hold it's own. if the current time table is still accurate it should be safe to assume that the next Nexus will be the OMAP5 premiere device. the OMAP is still Google's reference SoC and it can be used on any network much like the S4 and i'm sure we'll see the next Nexus in around October-November, that's around the time the rumored Pro devices should be making themselves known so Samsung has until then to get ready for the next leg in the race or they'll be relinquishing their title to Texas Instruments.

As long as it is not limited to 16GB capacity with no SD Card, then i will be putting my money down for this.
11. legion77 (Posts: 2; Member since: 22 Jun 2012)
Its fake !! . Even adreno 320 GPU hasn't been released and this phone uses adreno 350 GPU ?
17. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 6260; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
Video says private. and it's obviously a FAKE. It's too early for any HTC phones to come out with a QUAD CORE COMPATIBLE LTE phone
18. babyk (Posts: 221; Member since: 03 Nov 2011)
htc and snapdragon are like brothers and sisters. this phone will be out it may not be adreno 350 but there must be quad core krait from htc this year with adrena 320 at least.
20. lubba (Posts: 1310; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)
Days of camera and innovation are over for android oems. Its all about how much they can cram a core into their phones just to satisfy the techies. Lets put four, six, or eight cores in. Lets cram it up! That'll get their attention and keep them coming back. At least with MS OS, HTC won't have to worry about cores. They'll have to compete by design, camera, and innovation. Otherwise there is no way they can differentiate from the other oems.
27. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3949; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
I'm pretty sure they will keep it at quad-core. They will just upgrade the quads and the GPUs to keep up with the latest version of Android and the high-res screens. Quad is enough, anything more will be approaching desktop power territory, and we don't need that. That extra power will be unnecessary
25. rpankaj (Posts: 29; Member since: 21 Jun 2012)
yeah.. its adreno 320 gpu... not 350.. Qualcomm doesn't has any such gpu.. n snapdragons are way ahead in usability than those exynos frm samsung.. just powerful in benchmarks... real users use tegra or snapdragons...
26. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3949; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
I wouldn't say Snapdragons are better than Exynos. Exynos was the most powerful dual-core processor until the S4 came along, and that's only because the S4 used the new architecture. Exynos is on top with the quad right now, and Exynos will be on top again when their new A-15 dual core comes out.

I'm passing on the SIII in the U.S. because of its garbage Adreno 220/225 GPU, flimsy build quality, and dim screen, but the XXL would definitely be for me if it was released quickly. I loved the screen and build quality of my international One X, but hated no LTE and awful battery life. I can't justify getting the U.S. version because it is gimped like the SIII, so the XXL would do the trick.
33. TROLL.ISAHA (banned) (Posts: 535; Member since: 28 Mar 2012)
This is a killer in specs. Adreno350 that's better than the sgxmp4..
34. lpratas (Posts: 96; Member since: 09 Nov 2011)
what i've read in the GSMARENA site it was that the GPU inside of the HTC XXL it will be the Adreno 320, not the 305. Now, i don't know which site it's wrong about this information.
39. pandambaba (Posts: 28; Member since: 18 Feb 2012)
hmmm. contract is up in december so the one x should be super cheap if this is really coming out. i honestly don't think there are gonna be any more major changes in hardware this year, so if i get the first one x i'd just be getting relatively the same thing at a cheaper price. decision made!
