HTC Launches Sensation 4G Handset

The company behind Android’s favorite software coating, Sense UI, has delivered its latest Android-powered smartphone, the Sensation 4G. The device will feature a 4.3-inch touchscreen display with contoured gorilla glass and a Qualcomm processor.

HTC said on Tuesday that the qHD resolution display (960 x 540 pixels) on the Sensation provides around 35 percent more pixels than a standard display. It has a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9. The curves on the device (contoured glass) and a slightly curved screen gives you some solid viewing angles, and means that this Android-powered handset doesn’t feel too large in the hand like some other 4.3-inch devices.

Internal specs include a 1.2-GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor that will provide you with standard HTC flagship features, such as full 1080p HD video recording and lightning-fast app switching. It also packs an 8-megapixel camera that contains a super-fast shutter virtual shutter button and a dual-LED flash, WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth.

The Sensation runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and, of course, coats it with the latest Sense UI (also found on the Evo 3D). It’s also 4G capable, meaning T-Mobile will have plenty of time to upgrade its network for this device. The HTC Sensation has a very solid exterior, as its built with gorilla glass and an aluminum unibody, meaning HTC is returning to its initial goal of building great ‘all around’ devices.

If you’re looking for a flagship Android model with all the latest and great hardware and software, the Sensation 4G has it all. Unfortunately, the projected price of $199.99 with a deal on T-Mobile shows it, and the ‘latest and greatest’ on Android has proved to be quite short lived.
