HTC’s next big thing after Sensation, the Sensation XE, is going to be released starting this week in India. The phone is already available from online stores.
HTC has launched a new version of its flagship Sensation smartphone. The new HTC Sensation XE is the refreshed version of the older device, but has the same form factor and design.
Sensation XE is the first smartphone to benefit from the HTC and Beats Audio tie up, which should translate into an awesome music experience. Besides, Sensation XE gets a minor cosmetic upgrade as well in the form of Beats inspired red accents all around the phone.
HTC Sensation XE runs on Android v2.3.4 (Gingerbread) and has a 1.5 GHz dual core processor couple with 768 MB of RAM.
The Sensation XE from HTC has a 4.3 inch qHD screen with resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. HTC has integrated its Sense 3.0 user interface into the phone and that makes the whole experience much better.
The camera is also powerful with an 8 megapixel sensor with auto-focus, and a powerful dual LED, that can shoot images at a maximum resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels. Geo tagging is supported on the phone.
Touch-focus, image stabilization, face detection and instant capture on this HTC handset make photography easy and fun. A secondary camera on the phone can be used to make video calls. You can record full HD 1080p videos at 30 fps with stereo sound recording.
A 1730 mAh battery powers this HTC mobile phone. The battery is claimed to offer talk time of 9 hours on 2G and 7 hours on 3G. This phone gives you a standby time of 310 hours on 2G and 540 hours on 3G. Sensation XE from HTC has an internal memory of 1 GB and is expandable up to 32 GB with the help of microSD cards.
Other standard features of Android are all available in full force without any compromises, including 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and all the sensors, along with Google’s suite of applications
Another phone from the Sensation series the Sensation XL with much larger 4.7 inch screen and 16 GB internal memory is also expected to arrive soon. Rest of the specs are similar to XE but pricing will be an issue as it has to be priced significantly higher than XE given the specs and that could mean very few buyers.
