LAS VEGAS -- AT&T says it will launch HD voice later this year.

AT&T's head of mobility, Ralph de la Vega, made the announcement at the company's developer press conference. De la Vega was announcing a new Asus smartphone, the Padfone X.

The phone will be the first to get access to AT&T's LTE Advanced network, as well as HD voice.

AT&T is the third carrier to talk up HD voice, following Sprint, which first spoke about the feature two years ago, and T-Mobile, which touted HD voice at last year's CES.
