HTC Sensation XL thuds to life with its 4.7" display and Beats Audio technology
Right on cue, HTC officially announced the Sensation XL at their event in London today, bringing 4.7-inches of screen real estate to the ball with its head pounding Beats Audio technology.

Literally providing the total package into one smartphone, the HTC Sensation XL will surely impress those who are looking for something earth shattering in the Android World. In addition to the obvious 4.7” WVGA display with Gorilla Glass that it’s packing, the handset is known to be a fine image snapper with its 8-megapixel auto focus camera with backside illumination, f/2.2 28mm lens, and dual-LED flash. However, it’s still only limited to 720p HD video capture – with a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

Providing its core horsepower, the Sensation XL is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which is coupled with 768MB of RAM, to offer a rich and satisfying Sense 3.0 experience running on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Of course, it features other standards such as 16GB of internal storage, GPS, Wi-Fi, and HSPA+ connectivity for theoretical download and upload speeds of 14.4Mbit/s and 5.67Mbits/s.

With Beats Audio technology producing some thumping tunes, the handset is being shipped along with urBeats headphones, which integrates perfectly with the handset’s audio centric focus as well. Currently, it’s flaunting 3G support for the Asian and European markets – hence, it’s going to launch there first. Unfortunately, HTC doesn’t mention of any plans in selling the handset in the US, but then again, there might be some chance that it might happen.
