We unbox the 4G-capable HTC One XL Android phone
The [[artnid:416593|HTC One XL]] is an identical looking phone to the [[artnid:421149|HTC One X]] with the added benefit of 4G capability.
We've just got our hands on a review unit from online store [[xref:http://www.mobicity.com.au/htc-one-xl.html|MobiCity]], so let's take a look!
The HTC One XL packaging in all its glory. Do note that the Australian retail packaging (when the phone is officially released through Telstra) is likely to be different.
The One XL is an identical looking phone to the One X. Our review model was a dark grey colour, compared to the white model One X that sells in Australia. It is not yet known what colours the Australian model One XL will come in.
The One XL box includes a SIM eject pin tool and other documentation including a 'contact us' card, a warranty statement and a safety and regulatory guide.
HTC bundles a micro-USB to USB cable, a charging adapter and a pair of headphones. Note that the charger is a UK power plug, but that's nothing an adapter won't fix.
The HTC One XL has all the same features of the One X sans processor and memory. This includes a large 4.7in Super IPS LCD2 with a HD resolution of 1280x720 and an 8-megapixel camera with backside-illuminated sensor.
The One XL is designed from a single block of polycarbonate plastic. There are a few downsides to this design — the battery is not removable, there is no microSD card slot for extra storage and the phone uses a micro-SIM rather than a full-sized SIM card.
HTC Australia hasn't announced official pricing or availability details for the One XL, but it is expected to launch through Telstra in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for our full review shortly!
