HTC One XL European Release Date And Price Are Early June For €659

HTC One XL, the new flagship device of HTC’s line-up, was officially announced and it’s expected to hit the store shelves of the European retailers in early June.

We’ve seen the HTC One XL for the first time at MWC 2012 event in Barcelona and the smartphone sports a 4.7-inch Super LCD2 display, protected by Gorilla Glass technology with a resolution of 720 x 1,280 pixels. Under the 8.9 mm thick body of One XL there’s a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, clocked at 1.5 GHz.

On the back of the case you will find an 8 megapixel camera, with BSI sensor (BackSide Illuminated) and a group of lens with F2.0 aperture. The primary camera can record videos at Full HD resolution and take stills without interrupting the video recording. The burst shot feature is there, too, which will help you get pictures in lightning-fast succession, on a single press of the shutter “button.”

HTC One XL’s camera also features video stabilization, which should limit the rapid movement in the moment of the recording. On the front of the device you will find the secondary camera, with 1.3 megapixel resolution, which is useful when it comes to making video calls or using the Face Unlock feature, implemented in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the Lock Screen.

Next to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, One XL delights us with the Sense 4.0 user interface, customized by HTC to improve the user’s experience with the 4.7-inch HD display.

As any high-end smartphone does, HTC One XL comes with a policarbonate case with unibody design, just like it’s quad-core brother HTC One X. The features list can continue with MHL-HDMI port, Beats Audio certified sound system, NFC connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0, 3G, WiFi N dual-band (2.4 and 5 GHz), the latter one used for DLNA connections with compatible devices and, of course, 4G LTE chip.

Since Germany is one of the few Europeans countries with LTE infrastructure, the Germans will be the first to get their hands on HTC One XL.

HTC One XL sports a 1,800 mAh Li-Polymer batter and micr-SIM slot. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a the microSD card sold, thus the users will have to limit to the 32 GB of internal flash storage.

As I mentioned above, HTC One XL will become available for purchase in Germany and the release date was set for early June. The white model will cost as much as €699, while the black One XL will have price tag of €659.
