T-Mobile's HTC Sensation 4G

Looks like the 3D iteration of HTC's new flagship Android phone - the EVO 3D - will stay exclusive to Sprint. What T-Mobile will get, is the 4G version of the HTC Sensation that just got announced across the pond, at HTC's London event.

Dubbed the HTC Sensation 4G, it shares all the high-end specs of its namesake - 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon chipset of the third generation, 4.3" qHD resolution screen (540x960 pixels), 8MP camera with dual LED flash, and the new HTC Sense UI, that allows you to launch apps straight from the lock screen, among many other improvements. This chipset will allow you to record Full HD 1080p video with the smooth 30fps, just like the other dual-core phones out there.

T-Mobile's handset, however, adds that sweet HSPA+ connectivity, named 4G, which will allow you to download stuff at up to 14.4Mbps theoretical speeds. Furthermore, the HTC Sensation 4G will feature HTC Watch, the company's own entertainment hub that will allow you to watch movies and TV shows on your handset.

All this goodness is stuffed into sleek aluminum chassis, which you can grab this summer for a price that will be disclosed when we get closer to the launch time.

I feel like the 1.2 ghz dual core makes this different than the Thunderbolt.

like i said.. a thunderbolt, minus the dual core. which would be that 1.2ghz dual core processor in the thing. other than that and the difference between LTE radio and HSPA+ radio, its really the same phone.

I don't get it....Verizon has arguably the largest comsumer base in the US, as such they could support many different manufacturers' phones that would compete with each other. Why is the WORLD is Verizon shying away from the option of HTC dual core phones, for Motocrap, LG and Samsung??? How weird is it that the two LARGEST US companies (Verizon and AT&T) seem like they are locked into Motorola like this. HTC why???? I love VZW and HTC, I can't see myself ever not having a HTC phone, but I wants some dual core yumminess

Don't worry, I'm sure VZW will get a dual core soon by hTc and will probably have even more yumminess, if you could possibly imagine that! ;)

cool a$$ video!

Because Verizon has a crappy CDMA/EV-DO network, whereas T-Mobile and AT&T use the same HSPA+ technology that the rest of the world uses. CDMA and EV-DO are only largely used in the US, so naturally Motorola, being an American company, will be the most responsive to building devices for it. For the rest, building CDMA phones means not only crippling them speed-wise, but also limiting them to a particular market. This new HTC phone will be able to be sold all over Europe and Asia, not just for T-Mobile USA, and as such will probably make them a lot more money than a Verizon-compatible phone would.

duran, that holds no water. The world is on an almost even split between cdma and gsm countries.

Verizon gets exactly what verizon wants. VZW dictates to the manufacturer what it wants on the phone (they ALL do that). They prefer a very controlled aproach to always having the "latest n greatest".

T-Mobile keeps getting better with their network speed, plan pricing and phone selection yet they skip the main problem...coverage. I
