The HTC One XL has graced the Far East, Australia and North America (under the name HTC One X), and now it's headed to Europe, with today's news that Vodafone Germany will launch the device next month. The One XL is almost identical to the international One X, except that it sports a 4G LTE radio and dual-core Snapdragon S4 chip instead of the Tegra 3 found in the One X. (That's due to Tegra 3's lack of support for LTE.)

Basically, this is an AT&T One X for Europe, with European LTE bands. In addition to dual-band HSPA on 900 and 2100MHz, the Euro One XL supports LTE on 800, 1800 and 2600MHz bands. This means it'll also run on the UK's 4G LTE networks, whenever they're launched.

The One XL will launch in Germany on Vodafone, T-Mobile and O2, and there'll also be unlocked SIM-free version available. Prices reportedly start at €659 (~$830).

So 32Gig Alex?

Is there anyone who can tell if this would work on AT&T? Are the LTE bands hard wired or simply set via your APN name entries like EG/4G is done.

It doesn't support any of AT&T's bands, 3G or 4G. No idea if it's hardware or software, but without S-OFF, there's no way to flash radio images from the AT&T version in order to tell.
