HTC will bring an NFC-enabled successor to the Sensation in November

HTC will bring an NFC-enabled successor to the Sensation in November
The HTC Sensation 4G is coming this Summer, complete with 1080p video recording, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Android 2.3, and a contoured 4.3-inch screen. So the only thing really lacking is NFC capability. But according to an unnamed HTC sales manager, there will be an upgraded version of the Sensation 4G coming in November with NFC.

It's unclear whether this NFC-enabled superphone will be an updated Sensation 4G, or a new device altogether. The HTC sales manager describes it as "positioned slightly above the recently announced Sensation," and says that it will also feature a 4.3-inch screen.

While every manufacturer is preparing for the future of NFC, there still isn't much of a market at the moment. But once NFC payment systems are installed in retailers, and companies like Apple and Google lay the framework, we're going to see NFC become an integral part of our daily lives.

So where does this NFC-enabled Sensation fit in? Given the timeline, it may be the next Nexus device. And it may be the real turning point for NFC here in the U.S.

Wow the phone market is really over flooding. Just five months after a "new" phone comes out there is a slightly better one around the corner. And the Sensation 4g hasn't hit the shelves yet and it's about to be outdated
