HTC One XL coming to Telstra, launching June 5th

The HTC One X may have been out in Australia for a few weeks not, but the One XL has yet to drop in on our shores. That is, until the 5th of June when Telstra will start selling the 4G LTE version of the HTC One X, exclusively on Telstra’s 4G network (where coverage is of course).

We’re not going to dive to deep into this, but you should read out HTC One X review first. Secondly, it’s worth noting that this model only comes with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, unless it’s elder brother which comes with a Quad-core processor. Rip off you might be asking? Not quite you see because quad-core processors aren’t configured with work with the LTE network yet, so you’re going to have to drop the extra two cores to get your hands on the fastest speeds in the country. Aside from that, you’ll be getting the exact same build quality, the same software and the entire HTC experience.

Pre-orders start from the 1st of June, and pricing starts with $59 Freedom Connect Plan with a $6 handset repayment per month (after using an included MRO Bonus), with $550 worth of included calls and MMS, unlimited SMS and 1.5GB of data, all to standard Australian numbers (excludes use overseas) each month. Min cost over 24 months is $1,560. Furthermore, the first 300 customers who pre-order their HTC One XL online will receive a set of Beats Solo High Performance On-Ear Headphones with ControlTalk (valued at $279), so you better get in quick if you’re wanting to get your hands on this model. Business customers can purchase One XL for $3 per month (after using their MRO bonus) on the $90 Business Mobile Advantage plan for 24 months, which includes unlimited standard national SMS, unlimited MessageBank diversion and retrieval in Australia, and free national voice calls to eligible mobiles on the same account in Australia. 2GB of data is also included to use in Australia each month, which can be shared with other eligible services on the same account. Min cost over 24 months is $2,232.

So if you’re wanting to get your hands on this 4G goodness device, then head over to Telstra and place an order today!
