HTC exhibited the ONE series at Mobile World Congress 12 in Barcelona earlier this year and we got a chance to take a closer look at one of the monster’s powered by Nvidia’s quad-core Tegra 3 (4-Plus-1) SoC – the HTC One X.
Due to some limitation’s in the Tegra 3 chipset regarding LTE support, US carriers asked for an alternative with capabilities to sport their 4G LTE networks, which made Taiwan-based vendor to replace Nvidia’s quad-core SoC with Qualcomm’s dual-core Snapdragon S4 (Krait), a SoC capable of LTE speeds.
This is where the confusion ends because HTC One XL (powered by Snapdragon dual-core CPU) is the US version of the international One X model (Tegra 3 CPU). Now with this being said AT&T’s One XL is about to land on the shelve early next month (Sprint is also preparing to launch it in April).
The image above taken by a tester depicts One XL 16GB variant bound to AT&T network.
