HTC Sensation 4G smiles for the camera wearing the T-Mobile brand
The buzz surrounding the HTC Sensation is so loud that it can be easily mistaken for the sound of an angry swarm of African Bees. The handset is expected to bring its honey to T-Mobile on June 8th. Featuring a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and a 4.3 inch qHD display, the HTC Sensation is equipped with an 8MP camera on back and a .3MP VGA shooter in front; the device has been mentioned in the same breath as one of this season's hottest smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S II.

June 8th is not that far away, but for those of you really locked-in to this device, it probably seems like eons until you get to hold this phone in your hand. Until the actual launch date, you have these photos to keep you satisfied until you get to feel the real Sensation. We recently reported that Target plans on offering the phone for $199.99 which gives us a good feel for how much the handset will cost when released by T-Mobile.

The only thing this device has in common OS that it runs Android and it has a 4.3 inch screen. Now in regards to sexy and appealing how about an Audi R8 or Gallardo? Now that's sexy! I'm just curious what are you looking for them to change on the design?

Unless I'm mistaken, this phone only has 14.4mbps HSDPA, not 21 mbps HSDPA like the Samsung Galaxy. That's pretty important IMHO. Especially since T-Mobile has other phones capable of 21mbps HSDPA (G2x and the original Galaxy S 4G)

How come this site keeps saying there's so much buzz around the htc sensation but there's been no coverage or anything on it....I mean the sensation already came out on may 19th in UK. Shouldn't there be some reviews or hands-on?

Will this phone work on AT&T 3g frequency?

21. Anonymous9090 unregistered

AT&T uses GSM technology, which is the same as T-mobile. In theory, an unlocked device should work on its network.

How come people simply ignore the fact that HTC chose a chipset based on ARM Cortex 8? Even if someone thought that it doesn't matter that this device is set to compete with phones based on Cortex 9, there is no more room for speculations - the test results are out. Slashgear isn't the only site to compare these chipsets and the newer platform outpaced the old one by nearly 50%. Yes, perhaps the tests are chipset-biased; perhaps the phone should be judged after a few real world tests... but the theory and the facts available now are obvious - HTC came to a gunfight with a knife
