Along with sharper graphics, vibrant animations and new widgets HTC Sense will be better than ever.

There you have it, the Sensation comes this summer. Sensational!


Full Press Release:

    This phone is getting a LOT of press. Here is a comparison of it against the S2, from PC World:

    Blink your eyes for a second these days, and you just might miss the launch of another wildly impressive Android smartphone.

    The latest high-end handset to enter the mix is HTC’s Sensation 4G, a dual-core device announced on Tuesday and coming to T-Mobile this summer. The Sensation 4G boasts a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 768MB of RAM. It has a 4.3-inch qHD display, front- and rear-facing cameras, and HD video-recording capability. The Sensation also ships with Android 2.3, aka Gingerbread — the latest and greatest smartphone-based edition of the Android OS.

    So how does the HTC Sensation 4G stack up next to other 4G Android phones already on the horizon? I compared the Sensation with Samsung’s Galaxy S II, another hotly anticipated device, to get an idea of just how competitive the handset will be.

    In terms of pure computing power, the two phones are pretty darn close. The Sensation 4G has the upper hand on processing speed; its 1.2GHz dual-core chip is a hair ahead of the Galaxy S II’s 1GHz dual-core component.

    The Galaxy S II edges out the Sensation in the RAM department: It packs a full gig of memory, while the Sensation has just 768MB (still no small amount).

    Displays: Both phones sport 4.3-inch screens. The HTC Sensation uses LCD technology, while the Galaxy uses Super AMOLED Plus. Each material offers its own set of advantages and drawbacks, and it’s tough to label either as objectively superior. The HTC Sensation does have the higher resolution at 540 x 960 pixels next to the Galaxy’s 480 x 800.

    The Sensation is slightly larger than the Galaxy S II and about an ounce heavier, too. It also has less on-board storage: The Sensation ships with 1GB of internal space, while the Galaxy S II will come with the option of either 16 or 32GB.

    Only the Galaxy S II will feature NFC support — something that doesn’t mean much now but may prove useful in the future.

    One final point worth mentioning: Though the HTC Sensation and Samsung Galaxy S II both run Gingerbread, the phones provide noticeably different software experiences.

    The Sensation comes with HTC’s Sense user interface, whereas the Galaxy S II utilizes Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. Which is better is purely a matter of personal preference; the best thing you can do is spend some time playing around with each setup to see how you feel.

    If you’re like me and prefer an unmodified stock Android experience — a “pure Google experience,” as it’s called — you may want to look at a skin-free device like the upcoming T-Mobile G2X instead.

    The HTC Sensation 4G is set to launch sometime this summer on T-Mobile. No U.S. launch plans have been announced for the Galaxy S II thus far, but the phone is expected to arrive in the U.K. in early May — so odds are, we’ll be hearing something soon.

    For some readers there appears to be confusion on what is RAM and what is storage. You need to understand the difference between RAM and internal storage because those are NOT the same. This is an important distinction because GENERALLY storage does NOT affect phone performance, whereas RAM does.

    For example, see a comment where someone mistakenly thinks the LG 2X has 8 GB internal MEMORY. It does not. Fact is, the LG has 512 MB RAM. So it would be erroneous to base a buying decision on the assumption that the LG has 8 GB internal memory.

    Internal storage is simply a “built-in” chip that is only deleted when you choose to delete files. In contrast RAM is flash memory (a temporary workplace for program and OS code to function) that gets erased/replaced at times when operating the phone, for example, or when the phone is cycled off.

    Here’s some RAM comparisons of three hot phones:

    Samsung Galaxy S2: 1 GB RAM

    Sensation: 786 RAM

    LG2X: 512 MB RAM

    Here’s the internal storage on each:

    S2: 16 or 32 GB

    Sensation: 1 GB

    LG2X: 8 GB

    I will agree that having a large amount of internal storage is nice. When coupled with a 32 GB capacity microSD slot that makes for a lot of storage space. Plus, if one forgets to take along a microSD chip, it’s handy having internal storage one can fall back on.

    Sidenote: Something to notice on debuting superphones is whether or not it has a microSD slot. Some really nice phones, such as the Nexus S (that has partitioned storage), do NOT have an microSD slot. That makes the handset like the iPhone, whatever the on-board storage, that’s what you are limited to. No thanks. No microSD slot is a deal breaker for me.

      It does, in fact, have 8GB of internal storage memory. My post, in particular, said nothing about 8GB of RAM. If you do not think that Flash memory, drives, etc are memory, than you are sadly mistaken. It is built-in memory and as such can be called memory. Memory has many types such as cache, RAM, virtual, and hard drive (or in this case the internal drive), etc. If you want to correct people then please ensure your facts are right. The internal memory like flash memory is non-volatile as opposed to RAM, which is volatile (though they have flash RAM for some products). They are both memory. This is not meant to be harsh or rude to you, but merely enlightening to other readers who may be even more confused by the different posts and spec talk.
      I understand and I’m sure others appreciate you differentiating between the performance of the phone due to actual RAM for the layman out there but I wanted to clarify that it is considered internal memory for those that may not understand.

      • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/LBDY7YEMNBJT2GEJHHCW6VRYHY daniel

        I.E. All froms of Data storage Temporary or Permenent is called Memory.

        RAM (Random Access Memory): Memory (Data) that is being used by the system to run code of any type.

        Internal Storage: Memory (Data) that you have perminently on the phone that you may delete to remove, but doesn’t disappear when you turn off your device, this is what we would call a hard drive in a pc, or a file cabinet at your desk.

        MircoSD Expansion slot: Extends Internal Storage Memory to a tiny disc you can remove from the phone and place in other devices, up to 32GBs can be placed inside of this slot, but not every app can be placed here, making Internal Storage Memory even more important. Though this would be a great place to put Pictures, Videos, Apps that will move over, and any other data you might want to keep on an easy transfer space.

        In the end, this phone has enough memory for anything today, I really hope that it has 4GB internal though, as that was what early reports were stating and the sheet could be a typo, 4GB makes sense based off of the G2 Specs.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JMTPE5NTJCFYV2A7YTRSX3CVBE John Strange

        Well let me clarify for the layman and you. Removable storage vs internal memory is a huge difference and if you compare the two you are sadly mistaken. One means you can piss on it and drop it and pop out the SD card and salvage your data, the other, the phone you speak of means your data is gone. So clarify that for the people who don’t understand. Phones with NO external storage are like OEM computers with NO free DIM slots, they are garbage and pose a RISK.

    Thought Bubble Over My Head: The way T-Mobile is bring out the big guns, I wonder if the Company is announcing and releasing all these phones because customers are defecting and/or new accounts are down.

    Any T-Mobile employees working the sales floor want to chime in on how business is, post acquisition announcement?

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/LBDY7YEMNBJT2GEJHHCW6VRYHY daniel

      This is the HTC Pyramid, which has been rumored since the G2, so it was before all the buyout talks, or anyone even talking about selling Tmobile USA which is probably because of the recent merger of Orange and Tmobile Europe, I was hoping they would use their power to grow business here in america, but it seems they just want to dump it for a large amount of money and 3% stock in AT&T, hopefully I am not joining AT&T, I’ll be on sprint before that, you can trust in it.

    Can anyone chime in on HTC’s implementation of HDMI-out? I know it’s gong to be through some microUSB to HDMI cable, but is it “what you see on your phone is what you get on TV” or is it for videos/pictures only?

    • http://twitter.com/coma621 cory martin

      from what i’ve read it will have full mirroring of whatever is on the phone will show up on the tv/monitor

    • Anonymous

      Good you mentioned this because THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT NEW FEATURE AND TECHNOLOGY

      The “HDMI” port is on the left side of the phone, and you are correct, it’s a 5 pin microUSB port with MHL (mobile high-definition link”)

      HTC’s site says:

      “micro-USB 2.0 (5-pin) port with mobile high-definition video link (MHL) for USB or HDMI connection.”

      My understanding is that it will have full video functionality, whatever is on the phone display can show on the your HDTV via an HDMI connection on one end and the microUSB MHL on the other end. (This may be confusing, but it’s simply the MHL that handles the connection to the phone on one end, the HDMI on the TV, on the other.

      But the combined microUSB has many functions. It provides the MHL, the traditional USB charging port, a USB connection to the PC, and as a USB docking port (that’s why the port is on the side, for landscape placement on a dock. (Similar to what Samsung came out with on the Vibrant.)

      So the interface from the phone to the TV is NOT USB, it’s an MHL on one end, and standard HDMI on the other.

      If you have a TV with an MHL port (doubtful) it would be able to charge the phone’s battery while it is being used to watch movies, for example. But the MHL provider has a small adapter that allows this functionality on any TV.

      This is an emerging technology with Samsung and HTC willing to take the leap.

      The new HTC EVO 3D has this same port and HTC says it will be used on other high end phones. The Sensation confirms that statement.

      The Samsung Galaxy S2 has this same port. IMHO it’s the way of the future, as the saying goes.

      The logic behind it is to have less wiring inside, fewer things that can go wrong, less costs and reduce the number of ports on phones.

      If inclined, check this out:

      Note: I’m tired so can’t proof this. Hope it makes sense.

      • Anonymous

        I think its awesome that the companies are unifying the charge/data/video port into the same exact USB port. Way more convenient for us as well as less trash in the world.

        I just can’t wait until we are DLNA streaming a game to the TV while the phones screen is only for the controller. It’s coming.

        • Anonymous

          I actually prefer the setup on my N8: HDMI on the top, USB/OTG/Charging on the side, Classic charing on the bottom.

          That way I can connect my phone to the HDTV, hook up a KB/mouse AND still charge the phone so it doesn’t die in all my HD gaming.

          Making a single port takes away the ability to watch and charge…UNLESS the device can be charged via the HDMI connection.

          This is no slight to this device and definately no boost to Nokia. I would like to see multiple ports like on the N8 or like PCs on future devices as connectivity is becoming a great mark on the spec sheet.

          Now, this phone is the only phone that makes me want to take the plung and let go of my $5.99 tzones. I am a hardware buff so I’m not excited about android but rather the GPU and 1080p. If only HTC used the lossless intelligent zoom and optics of the N8, it would be a worthy replacement. Why, I am a photographer/videographer and optics and zoom are important and I refuse to lug around a seperate camera.

          I am glad to see T-Mobile get a powerful device with a huge screen. I’m a little disappointed at the 14.4 max but that has never stopped me before as my current devices max out at 10.2.

          All in all, great news for T-Mobile customers!

          Your TV will in fact charge your phone via HDMI/USB with MHL. Boom problem solved. And I personally would rather stream my screen via DLNA (successfully) and use a charger only if necessary.

    I seriously can’t decide between this, the G2X, and the GS2. I’m still on my old G1 and can’t hold out much longer. I’ve also been screwed by HTC on more than one occasion. (TyTN 2, G2)

    I think it’s gonna have to be the G2X still. Then I’ll get a quadcore phone after 6 months or so.

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/LBDY7YEMNBJT2GEJHHCW6VRYHY daniel

      Nah, wait for this phone, Qualcomm’s new processor is the way to go. I also have a G1 unboxed december 2008, I finally decided to flash it with Froyo for trout which is the HTC Magic’s (Dream/G1’s keyboardless sister phone) official Android 2.2.2 release. Works really well, but it won’t stop you from remembering that the phone is 3 years old. Still you get pinch to zoom, and 5 home screens, not to mention a faster device over all, and if you really need to, Overclocking it to 650mhz is as easy as moving a slider to the right. The A11 processor in the G1 runs at 528mhz and still can’t do flash but Froyo4Trout was worth it completely.

    Kudos T Mobile on three winners this year (maybe four).

    – G2X – First dual core and fastest phone around
    – HTC Sensation, now that’s a phone I want, its HTC, it works (please don’t lock it down) and lets hope battery life is nice. No doubt this is the phone for me.
    – LG Slate
    – oh.. yeah Sidekick, it has a drawback its Samsung, …yuck!!! (software updates anyone? look at the Fascinate… yuck!!).

    Finally T Mobile got it, you need great devices! Now if we can get ATT of the Table, and a bit more 3G coverage on Interstates, they become a winner. T Mobile, get ATT deal of the Table, its not worth it! You stand to take market share away from it!. Just increase your coverage and there is nothing ATT will be able to do!

    To HTC, great phones, few areas to work on:

    a) Battery Life!
    b) MTBF needs to be higher.
    c) More Durable. Here is where Samsungs are nice.. you drop them they still work.

    Phones you don’t want..own, as you will never see Gingerbread or anything else:

    – CLIQ
    – CLIQ XT
    – CHARM
    – i1

    – BEHOLD
    – MOMENT

    There are three HTC phones that wont get an official release, but Android’s ROM community will probably work around them:

    – G1
    – HERO

    So remember, when you purchase a phone, it has to have a nice life, take a look at the G1? / Hero? / EVO? Great phones.

    Two phones in TMobile new lineup are setting them selves apart from the competition G2X (Vanilla / fast / fast updates hopefully) and HTC Sensation.

    With HTC you have one guarantee, they work REALLY NICE. They understand USER EXPERIENCE and what FAST means. Now if they can translate this into QUALITY as well, they will easily overwhelm APPLE / NOKIA and all others. (shucks, they already have!)

  • TaylorGangorbuyATT

    Just as my mind was made up and was in full swing for the Evo 3D release T-Mobile finally flexes some muscle with the G2X and then the Sensation. Looking to retire the Nexus One and the Evo 3D has been my first choice up to this point. We’ll see though. With this all I really want to see is better rural coverage and building penetration (0 Signal in the hospital and inside my college campus here in Tampa) and I will be one happy Even More Plus subscriber.

    I just read it has a VGA-front facing camera, well more like heard on a video: http://youtu.be/bGw8BA98bgg . So, the G2x does have a 1 up on the Sensation 4G w/ a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera?

      I hope not.
      The internal spec stuff is fine to me
      but I don’t like the hardware design.
      I seem to be in the minority but I could do without the rounded corners
      and I think the back is ugly.
      An all black phone would have at least kept me from being on the fence.
      but the rounded corners and unattractive back are two strikes for me.
      At the HTC site, I looked over the EVO 3D–it’s all black-even the speaker grill-
      except for the silly red accent on the back.
      I can even forgive the unnecessarily circled buttons but two-toned is not really my cup of tea.
      This Sensation looks like it’s three-toned even.
      I’ll cross my fingers and hope that Europe gets this version and we get-
      Oh-who am I kidding?
      I’d have to cobble together my own design before I see a phone I am truly in love with.

    its irritates the crap out of me when a new phone is coming out and lacks something as simple as a kickstand that everyone wants. Especially since the HTC Sensation is pre loaded with a movie application so you can download and watch movies . I guess HTC expects us to watch our movie and hold the phone in our hands for an hour and a half. Cmon HTC…Get with the program !!!

    • Vibrant Addict

      Buy a stand that works better than those kickstands…


      Problem solved, fits in your wallet/purse/ (back of your phone if you have a stretchy case)

    • Youngt82

      They will have a kickstand case/accessory straight out the box like theyre doing with the Evo 3D

      • Farhan

        Not sure about that. Have you read that somewhere? The reason they have a kickstand accessory for the Evo 3D is coz they couldn’t include the kickstand on the back due to the 3d cameras and higher capacity battery.

        The Sensation doesn’t have those limitations and if they wanted to they could have included the kickstand on the device. But I am hoping they come out with a kickstand accessory since that would be sweet.

    • http://twitter.com/mcasao ManwellC

      Because they expect you to buy a case or dock. Good business sense since not ‘everyone’ as you state wants a kick stand. Me being one of them. A Dock? Yes.

      They’ll probably force you to buy a cover that has the kickstand as they did with the hd2

    hopefully they will make one for the ATT bands cause thats where we are headed folks. My 12 year old lamented to me that his phone, which he paid cash for, wont be working in a year. He is so mad at t-mobile.

    It sucks, I will help him out if need be. I think ATT will make it right for all of us. We will finally have some decent coverage tho nothing like Verizon. I was getting my SIM card replaced today and my friendly rep noticed my mifi. Man, he was pissed. Better looking and totally blew the doors of the ugly T-mobile. We measured 3D on his and 13.4 D on mine. He had to put his right near the window.

    Once Verizon puts out full LTE phones, ATT is in trouble.

    I love tmobile for their plans but the coverage drop call compromise is tought. As the Verizon rep said to me, you want to rule the air you have to pay. I was annoyed but he is correct. I am rocking with my modem. No buyers remorse here.

    The problem with this phone is the locked down bootloader. Seems HTC has been locking down all their newest phones. For a company that made the Nexus One, I still use it, can go from one extreme to the other is very sad. Android is open, what happened to HTC, they make great hardware, I think the best, but locked down bootloaders should be a freaken criime. HTC completely forgot what the Android platform stands for.

      All bootloaders are locked…. I’m sure you meant encrypted. No biggie. Everyone gets this confused for some reason.

    Too bad Tmobile is taking forever to release their first 4.3″ Android with LED(flash).
    This Tmobile Sensation will be released more than a year after Sprint released their first 4.3″ Android with LED(flash). Sprint is now selling a double-screen Android mobile. I sure wish Tmobile would lead the pack with Android (again) and not be last in line to get the top of the line mobiles.

      t-mobile is leading the pack in terms of dual core smartphone availability, both with this and the G2X. 4.3″ screen and an LED flash are not groundbreaking achievements/specs. This one has both, plus a qHD resolution, 8mp camera, 1080p video at 30fps. The sensation is pretty current, as is the LG G2X. T-mob might even be getting this ahead of Sprint getting the Evo 3D

      I agree with you Meagan, perhaps this is why T-mobile decided to sell off their US market to At&t? I love T-mobile, but they are always the last to release killer devices. Their sales suffered due to lack of nice devices that people want while Verizon, At&t and even Sprint were releasing devices people wanted, When you have a choice in carriers and the competition has what you want, you go to them.

    Awesome dont know if i should wait for the sensation or buy the g2x

    I think a lot of people lose interest in T-Mobile when it comes to buying phones, because they wait to long to release them. Very sad. What is the wait for? If they know it won’t be release for another 2 months, wait to announce it. Not just TMo, many other companies. Sadly, the one company I care the least for does not do this. We all know who that is. They talk about it, and then within a week…it’s out. Come on with it already.

    Anyone know if this is a quad-band. The G2X is not, the S II will work on all networks, so I lament…. HTC, Samsung OR the upcoming MyTouch 4G. Is Sammy’s SII the only one that will work on both TMO & AT&T?

    • Smackeytf

      More than likely an HTC stock preloaded wallpaper
