HTC Sensation 4G launching on TMobile in June

first_imgRumors are swirling that Apple won’t launch the iPhone 5 until September this year, which gives Google some time to figure out how the heck they’re going to pull the two strands of Android back together, now that their mobile operating system has split into tablet and smartphone specific flavors. In the meantime, device manufacturers looking to upgrade their flagship phones need to stick with Gingerbread, and that’s just what HTC has done with their new flagship, the Sensation.Running Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread and driven by a dual-core Qualcomm MSM 8260 1.2GHz processor, the Sensation boasts a 4.3-inch SLCD touchscreen packing a 960 x 540 resolution: not quite Retina, but still vibrant and attractive. Connectivity is HSPA/WCDMA for cellular, 802.11b/g/n for WiFi and 3.0 for Bluetooth, while other specs include an 8 megapixel camera capable of 1080p video recording with stereo sound and HDMI out through the microUSB port with an adapter.AdChoices广告Design-wise, the Sensation is attractive, if unimpressive. Measuring in at just 11.33mm thick and weighing just 148 grams, the Sensation boasts a unibody aluminum design, as well as screen durability afforded by the always trustworthy Gorilla Glass. Other odds and ends include GPS/AGPS, a dual-LED flash on the back and the usual gyro, G-sensor, digital compass, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor.HTC’s been loading its smartphones with HTC Watch, the company’s movie and TV show rental system, and the Sensation is no exception. It’ll ship with over 600 titles available at launch: trailers of these films will be watchable over 3G, while the full movie will have to be streamed from WiFi. Once purchased, these films are stored in a cloud locker, which can be accessed from up to five HTC devices… but, lamely, not a PC.HTC’s also overhauled their Sense UI to take into account some of the lessons they learned building the HTC Flyer.The Sensation will be sold through T-Mobile USA as a 4G phone sometime in May or June. Pricing remains unannounced.More at SlashGearlast_img read more
