HTC One XL lands in Europe next month, packs LTE and Snapdragon S4 processor
The HTC One XL, which was quietly unveiled alongside the HTC One X back at MWC, is officially coming to Europe in early June. This is what the Taiwanese manufacturer announced together with European carrier Vodafone. What makes the One XL so special, you ask? Most importantly, we are dealing with one of the first LTE smartphones destined for the European market. However, a few hardware changes had to be made in order to accommodate the feature. 

Since the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip, which powers the international HTC One X, does not play along well with LTE yet, it has been replaced with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 clocked at 1.5GHz. You know, just like what had to be done with the AT&T HTC One X model. But other than that, specs and software should be pretty much identical: 4.7-inch 720p HD display, snappy 8-megapixel camera, polycarbonate body, and Android 4.0 running the show. 32GB of on-board storage come standard and those free 25GB of cloud storage, courtesy of Dropbox, should come in handy. 

Vodafone Germany will be the first carrier to offer the HTC One XL, followed by Deutsche Telekom and O2 Germany. Getting your hands on one will cost about 659 euro (roughly $836) off-contract.

I'm sorry but where do you see that the battery life on a HTC One XL is worse than the Tegra 3 supporting X?

The article states the XL will be heading to Germany under the Vodaphone carrier. I'm assuming they have LTE coverage set up already.

PA, please review whether the One XL has a 32 GB storage or 16 GB of storage. The one reason that I didn't let my dad hold out for a One XL and go for a One X is because of that internal storage. I am aware that there's not a load of difference between the two devices, but still the S4 seems to be an overall better chip.

If the European XL has 32 gigs of internal storage, AT&T is bad and they should feel bad.

Maybe because this is just the LTE version of the One X?
