HTC Sensation multimedia phone is revealed

by Darren Allan

HTC has unveiled a new smartphone, the Sensation.

This model had been previously leaked under the name Pyramid – which we think we prefer, but never mind – and is a dual-core 1.2GHz processor powered, Android 2.3 smartphone.

The specs are quite impressive, with a large 4.3 inch display boasting a resolution of 960 x 540, and an 8 megapixel camera with full 1080p recording (along with dual LED flash).

Sensation users will find a new improved version of the HTC Sense UI on board, which boasts redesigned widgets, and a customisable active lockscreen (which can display weather info, social network updates and so forth).

The company is particularly pushing the multimedia line with this handset, and it comes with HTC Watch, a movie streaming app that allows you to rent or buy films.

These can be viewed on the 4.3 inch display, which is 16:9 widescreen format so there’s no letter-boxing. Or alternatively you can pipe out the picture to your HDTV.

Peter Chou, CEO of HTC, commented: “Smartphones have evolved into pocket-sized entertainment centres that enable people to take their favourite content with them wherever they go.”

“The HTC Sensation takes this even further by combining the great new HTC Watch entertainment experience with the latest HTC Sense experience to deliver a powerful, evolved multimedia smartphone to our customers.”

Expect the smartphone to be available next month.

  1. I’ve enjoyed HTC handsets since 2004 when the Orange spv1 was released. Over the years the handsets have changed, th media platforms improved. However everytime the handset improves, incorporating a better battery, the “draw” increases at the same or greater daily demand. Net result? Battery life of a day. Not much entertainment in a flat battery.
