As pointed out by the dudes at CoolSmartphone, the HTC Sensation briefly appeared on play.com with a price tag of £499.99 delivered. It’s the first time we’ve been given an indication of how much HTC’s superphone might set us back.
Furthermore, play.com suggested a release date of 30 June 2011, however both the price and ETA have now disappeared. It’s quite possible that the eager beavers at play received a bit of a bollocking from HTC.
Other retailers are still being vague about the HTC Sensation. Expansys is taking pre-orders but notes: “Price Not Announced”. The dual-core powerhouse doesn’t yet appear on Amazon, however Clove does tell us: “First SIM-free stock expected 10th June”. That’s less than a month away. Exciting.
The HTC Sensation joins the Samsung Galaxy S II, Motorola Atrix and LG Optimus 2X in the first wave of dual-core Android smartphones. It has a 4.3in display, 8MP camera and 1.2GHz dual-core processor.
It’ll also rock the brand new HTC Sense 3.0, which sadly won’t be backwards compatible. Only the Flyer and US-bound Evo 3D will receive 3.0 treatment. Bah.
