HTC One X (XL?) Swings By FCC With AT&T LTE Bands

After hearing about HTC’s first quad-core phone for months and months, HTC finally announced the device at the Mobile World Congress, officially revealing the HTC One X as the highlight of its new One-series of Androids. We learned that HTC planned to launch the phone in the US on AT&T and its new LTE network. Today we see the FCC publish certification documentation for a new HTC smartphone, and it looks like it just might be the One X.

Now, to be fair, there’s still a little uncertainty about how the phone will be named. From HTC, we keep hearing about the One X, which features a quad-core Tegra 3. However, the company has revealed that the version of the phone that will run on LTE networks, including AT&T’s in the States, will only feature a dual-core processor. Publicly, HTC’s been referring to this as a dual-core One X, but the company’s website suggests that this LTE version is a fully-distinct model, the One XL. We don’t know if the company’s going to keep using the two names largely interchangeably, but that seems to be the case thus far.

Dual-core One X or One XL, whatever hit the FCC today is definitely on its way to AT&T. Besides the standard voice and 3G frequencies for phones running on the carrier, there’s support for LTE bands 4 and 17, the 700MHz and 1700MHz ranges used by AT&T.

The international version of the phone should arrive around April 5; no word yet on its AT&T launch.
