Australia’s biggest Telco appears to be continuing its latest trend of new mobile phone announcements by confirming it will be shortly launching another two handsets.
Coming off the back of this year’s MWC in Barcelona Spain, Telstra has confirmed that it will be acquiring two handsets from the HTC One range. Although it’s not yet known which HTC One handsets the Telco will acquire, my guess is that one of the handsets will be compatible for their Next G 4G mobile network.
Browsing through the HTC One range, it’s highly likely that Telstra will at least obtain the HTC One XL, as it is the only handset that boasts 4G-LTE network support. I must say that the HTC One range of handsets sport impressive features and specifications and if Telstra happens to make this handset available in their range, their customers will be in for a real treat.

There are three other HTC One models (HTC One S, HTC One V and HTC One X) soon to be released as well, however the HTC One XL is the only 4G-LTE network supported handset, so you can take a guess on what the other HTC handset is that Telstra will announce soon.
