SIM-free and unlocked HTC One XL is now available in Australia. Currently, Oz residents can only purchase the black version for AU$850 (€660). It will work on every GSM carrier in Australia and on Telstra’s LTE network. In case you are thinking of importing one over, you'd be glad to find out that the HTC One XL supports the needed European GSM and 3G bands as well. There's even support for some of the upcoming LTE networks in Europe working on the 2600MHz band. HTC One XL is similar to the One X we already reviewed, save for the chipset. The One XL uses a Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 SoC with a 1.5GHz dual-core Krait CPU and Adreno 225 GPU. The NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 does not offer native LTE support, which caused the chipset swap. This makes Australia the second country to get a Krait-powered One X after the US, whereAT&T offers it. We already covered its chipset performance and found that it's often doing better than the Tegra 3 in the One X. In fact we are currently putting the final touches to our HTC One X for AT&T review. It should go live later tonight so stick around if you want to learn more about it.

Samsung Galaxy S III will be launched here in Malaysia

It looks like the Samsung Galaxy S III will be launched here in Malaysia in the very near future, why do we say so? Because our local telcos, or DiGi at least, is readying its preorder page for the device. Over the weekend, DiGi accidentally opened up its ROI page for the upcoming Samsung flagship mobile device that generated a whole load of hype. At the worldwide announcement which happened earlier this month, Samsung revealed that the device will be available in Europe starting from 29 May 2012 while the Malaysian launch is expected to be in early June but from the looks of it, we might be getting it earlier – on the European launch date perhaps? While we’re letting the telcos, presumably all three or even four of them – DiGi, Maxis, Celcom and U Mobile – get their stuffs ready, do stay tuned to Lowyat.NET because we will be getting one in for review very, very soon; ahead of the launch of course. I’m personally psyched, while I’m not a fan of the device because of its shape, it’ll be interesting to see how it performs.
