Take this with a huge grain of salt, but we’ve been hearing from a few people — and it’s been posted on Telstra’s own community forums — that the HTC One XL for Telstra may have been delayed until the middle of June (next month). We’ve heard no definitive reason for the delay, but it has been widely speculated that the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip powering the device has been in short supply. That would make sense as to why the One XL has only been launched in major markets such as North America (AT&T in the US, Rogers in Canada) to ensure there’s enough supply to meet demand.

We assume that once there’s enough S4 chips to go around, the One XL will make its appearance here in Australia on Telstra. Whether that’s the middle of June, or perhaps a little earlier (we’d like to think so!), remains to be seen.

I currently work for Telstra and my only concern is that there really won’t be any redeeming features about the HTC Velocity once this is out.

I’d really love to have confirmation that it will indeed be LTE. And-what happened to our Samsung Galaxy SIII LTE as well?????( I will keep on dreaming 🙂 )

I noticed MobiCity now seems to stock the HTC OneXL:

Doesn’t list the 4G frequencies though, so not sure if it’s the Asia one or the US (price is also a bit crazy).

Buzz you could have written 20 articles like this based in what a telstra store manager said, all with different dates.
