HTC makes Sensation XE official

HTC makes Sensation XE officialWe were promised a barrage of new smartphones from HTC in Q3, and the Taiwanese manufacturer hasn’t disappointed. We recently met the HTC Titan and Radar, and now HTC has made the rumoured Sensation XE nice and official.

Being completely modest ‘n’ all, HTC describes the Sensation XE as a “mega-powerful, multimedia superphone”. Excellent.

There was some dubiety about the HTC Sensation XE’s processor, but we can confirm that it is indeed a 1.5GHz dual-core monster.

As we’ve been hearing, the HTC Sensation XE will boast Beats Audio goodness, which means you get some nice in-ear headphones thrown in. HTC promises that the “specially tuned software and user interface delivers the ultimate mobile audio experience”.

Battery capacity is increased from 1,520mAh on the original HTC Sensation to 1,730mAh on this new XE fellow. Otherwise it’s much the same phone that you (possibly) know and love, ‘cept with some nice red touches here and there.

We’re told to expect a European release date of “late September”. I bloody want one.

Now this is more like it! Surely HTC is running out of words to describe these phones. What's next, hyper-awesome super-duper smartypantsphone, I reckon. Not fond of the "Beats" branding on the back, but everything else looks great.

Kinda weird is the fact this has a 4GB storage chip inside, but only 1 GB available. Huh?

"pant wettingly fantastic" perhaps?

Am liking the increase in battery size although I suspect that may be negated by the ass kicking processor and trouser ripping screen size

Meh.
My Sensation already runs at 1.5Ghz (as the stock handset is actually underclocked), I've already picked up an EVO battery (1,800mAh) and my ROM of choice has Beats Audio AND Dolby Mobile installed.
If I wanted the red bit I could just nick some of the Mrs nail varnish ;)

Great news. Sensation XE = cheaper original.

Reminds me of the days when every couple of months Plextor or Toshiba would come out with a slightly faster CD/RW drive for sale until someone worked out that all they were doing under the covers was upgrading the firmware......

@mrew42
Is that an official EVO 3D battery? I've got the same idea as CTPAHHIK.

@blizzard,
No it's a generic amazon thing but seems to do the job beyond the paltry offering that came in the Box.
Get on that 'reduced price' bandwagon straight away :)

Interesting to know an EVO 3D battery fits in there! Thanks for that.

Well my upgrade period is from 1st October and I'm officially out of contract 31st December. I really have no idea what to do. I've got a final months redemption for £25 on my HTC Desire contract so if I upgrade earlier I miss out on that. Then again, I do have a craving for some 4.3-inch, qHD action. Argh.

If your anything like me you'll do your damndest to wait it out and then crumble and call them at the first available moment.........

I think, now a days, htc launched so many handset like htc sensation, htc sensation xe, htc sensation xl etc in comparision to iphone brands. so many people also says, sensation is much better than iphone brand handset.

By the way, Thanks for sharing information about HTC Sensation Xe deals.
