T-Mobile Dealer Leak Confirms June 8th Release Date For HTC Sensation 4G

The HTC Sensation 4G news just keeps getting better over the weekend as we just received the above screen shot confirming the much rumored June 8th release date. This comes on top of last nights leaked screen shot that confirmed Target’s release date and pricing. However, this date is for T-Mobile directly and we expect that Target will launch the phone on a Sunday which lines up perfectly with the June 12th date.

A June 8th release date has been the rumored since the Sensation 4G was first announced as a spotted Google advertisement hinted a “6/8″ release. Along with the Google advertisement which was quickly pulled, the press shot of the Sensation 4G was dated June 8th providing some supporting evidence to release date rumors. Now this screenshot gives us the confirmation we needed in order to faithfully say June 8th is indeed Sensation 4G day.

      Errr….. Phone carriers/manufacturers are getting greedy lately… expect $549, or even $599.

      Moto Atrix – $549
      Samsung Infuse – $549
      Droid Charge – $569
      HTC Thunderbolt – $569
      Nexus S 4G – $529

      See the trend?

    Really want this phone but i’m concerned about what it’ll be like going from the nexus one to a non-stock device. I’ve really enjoyed getting the updates as they happy and not having to deal with all the custom UI stuff. HTC is the only manufacturer I really trust though.

    • Don4Tech

      Long battery life would be a nice bonus but, as a heavy internet and power-hungry software user, I’ve carried extra batteries for my last several phones.  It’s not a deal breaker.  Extended-life batteries will soon be availalbe from several manufacturers.

       Me, too, in spite of the freeze and reboot problems I read about it the T-Mo and G2x forums.  I almost got the G2x yesterday at Costco for $80.  Now I think I’ll wait a few weeks for the Sensation.

    How much it will be without a contract, thats what I want to know.

    • Anonymous

      Should be around 500

    • Tjcabq

      400 if you already have service…with minimal work.

      Simple open up a brand new line, on a brand new contract (do it online and don’t tell them about your current line).  Pay the $199 contract price for the phone, wait 15 days, then call to terminate your service & contract which will cost you $200 ETF.  

      You must hold the contract for at least 15 days or T-mobile will cancel your contract without an ETF…but you’ll have to return the phone to them.

      199 for the phone
      200 for the ETF
      total $399

      I know this works because I did it for my current T-mobile 4G phone.

      T-mobile tells uneducated people that they have to pay inflated prices (500-700 dollars) unless you’re willing to get chained to a 2 year contract.  I call BS, their cost is nowhere near 500-700 dollars.

      I’m getting this phone, will cancel on day 15, throw away the SIM card, and pop in my current active T-mobile SIM card and happily enjoy my phone.  If there’s another new phone that I want 4 months from now (i.e. NEXUS 3), I’ll sell the Sensation on ebay/craigslist…probably recovering my full purchase price.  

      • Mopar6464

        You may get away with that once or twice but then T-Mobile will catch on to that trick.
        They keep records of your opening and closing acoounts. 

        • Tjcabq

          I am completely honest with them when I close the line, and they know the math works in favor of smart customers. They’re also happy to collect the $200 ETF. 

          And I’m sure they have records that show how long I’ve been with them (since 2001).

      • John Doe

        Good luck with that now T-Mobile is doing Device Recovering Fees on top of the ETF. Why do i know this because i am a T-Mobile employee if you want do but don’t be surprised when your bill is $200 ETF plus $199.00 for phone on top of that the additional $299.99 PLUS TAX. $700. and if you don’t pay not only will they throw you in collections possibly cut your CURRENT service.  I bet you felt like you sounded so smart when you were typing this up but do you actually think you are the only i-diot that does this? no, T-Mobile has officially launched the Equipment Recovery Fee and let you walk into my retail store and do this ill track your cancellation (which i could fyi) and manually have them add it.

        • Mopar6464

          So your saying if a person buys a new 4G phone from T-Mobile and use it for say 2 months and they decide it sucks because that person is not really getting any 4G coverage in their area they can’t cancel their T-Mobile agreement and pay the ETF willingly without still being slapped with that equipment recovery fee ?

        • Tjcabq

          I’ve been with them over 10 years, and they haven’t said anything yet. I got the G2 this way. Besides, why would  they cut employee.on a regular paying customer who’s paid them well over 10,000 dollars since 2001?  The high dollar line is completely separate line that continues to operate.  T-mobile’s contract cuts both ways (what I pay, and what they can charge). There’s no way around that!  As always print your contract in case you get a rouge employee.

          In today’s environment, T-mobile is bending over backwards to avoid loosing it’s valuable customers who hate ATT.  They are trying to keep their customers, not cut them.

        • Adam

          All those extra fees would have to be in terms/contract then I would believe you 

      • Asian_inspired03

        keep on doing it mr Tjcabq.. one of these days you will be recieving a letter from Customer Relations or Written Corresponce with all the fraud you are doing.. Reason why i know coz i work for the company too and fee ashamed with the people like you trying to cheat the system.. It will not happened.. i would love to see your account one of these days will the EQUIPTMENT RECOVERY FEE AND ETF plus the TAXES.. do you call customer loyalty and tell us that this a TMOBILE ERROR coz its clearly not.

        • Tjcabq

          Just read the terms of your own contract, it’s $200.  You can say whatever you want to try to scare people, but I have done this in the past and will do it again.  If T-mobile doesn’t want my money, I’m sure another company will take it.

           Ahem…. what fraud?  Could you tell me exactly what part of this is fraud?
          1.  Open new line of service, get phone with discount, sign TC.
          2.  Cancel that line of service, pay ETF and acquired charges per TC.

          You’re talking out of your ass. 

        • Mopar6464

          That’s how i see it also.
          How would any customer know if a new phone offered is really any good in 14 days. I say it takes atleast a month to really know the phone and it’s capabilities before you know rather or not to dump it or not. And sometimes it’s not the phone , it’s the spotty T-Mobile coverage in certain areas that tick people off and cancel their service. 

      • Adam

        the also charge taxes on 200 etf and activation so you need to add about $70 to etf. taxes on 200 etf and activation so you need to add about $70 to etf.

      I rather have an 8mp camera as opposed to 5mp for the evo 3D.
      Rather have a thinner, slimmer, and lighter casing unlike the evo 3d that is fatter, wider and heavier because of the 3d internals.
      Rather record 1080p video @ 30 fps as opposed to 24 fps like the evo 3d.
      Evo 3d has a bit more ram but it evens out because it most likely is just using it for the 3d.

    No country in the world calls it 4G, since it is not a 4G phone. I don’t understand why TMO have to lie, they even make you pay more for DATA cause it’s “4G” when its nothing more than 3G. What a scam!

          Every carrier has 4G now. Now that the ITU changed the definition to being Wimax, LTE, AND HSPA+, all US companies have 4G. Also note that the ITU isn’t an American company so it’s not like us Americans just make all the rules.

      Are you honestly going to Jack every post he writes to push people to your site? On the other hand to write a comparison you should be less bias to the two your comparing. And extra for people who have probably never actually used either. I own a g2x and can say there are some things that are nice about the sensation but I will be keeping my g2x. A phone that may not have a 4.3 in screen but I think is a better fit for me. Also I’ve owned almost all T-Mobile’s HTC Android phones to this point (G1, mytouch 3g, HD2 I know, G2 and now the LG G2X. I can say this is by far the best Android experience I have ever had.

    Im all for this phone but, looking at the specs on that Evo3d got me making hard choices. 1. Evo 3d= 1gb ram vs sensation= 768 ram 2. Evo 3d to have hdmi output vs sensation dlna 3. Of course 3D I know thats nothing to alot of folks but that give me Something extra to do. 4. Not sure bout this but do the sensation have a ffc? I use mine on my mt4g Please feel free to give me advice anyone. Lol

    • Anonymous

      The evo 3D needs that boost in ram for the gimmicky 3D (which is complete overkill, no phones IMO need 3D). HDMI, although nice is also not really necessary. But for some I guess it’s a need. I have it on my current phone and have used it once to see how it worked. That was more than a year ago. I assume your talking about NFC? I don’t think it has it. NFC will be super handy but I think it’s not ready for prime time. Not for at least another year.

    • Anonymous

      Evo 3d has a weaker camera compared to the sensations 8mp cam.
      It also allows the sensation to shoot 1080p video @ 30fps . 24fps for the evo 3d.
      Evo 3D is also fatter , wider and heavier than the sensation because of the 3d gimmicky hardware inside.

      • http://twitter.com/jbjtkbw00 jbjtkbw00

         You DO realize that 5mp vs. 8mp on a camera isn’t all that important, don’t you? It’s all about the lenses. As much as I DON’T like Apple, the iPhone 4 is a 5 mp camera and it takes very good photos. Really, the only thing I majorly respect about the device.

        Don’t compare devices based on the number of mp the camera hands. It’s irrelevant.

        • Anonymous

          So your telling me that these 2 devices made both by HTC and that are suppose to be similar devices besides minor carrier differences, that htc will put a better lens on the evo? When htc isn’t known for having great lenses to begin with?
          Keep dreaming.
          The sensation is a sexier slimmer device than the gimmicky bulky evo 3d. That.s the bottom line.

        • http://twitter.com/jbjtkbw00 jbjtkbw00

          Read what I said.  What you wrote isn’t what I said at all. I’m talking specifically about megapixel ratings on a camera phone. If you know anything about digital photography, you would understand what I’m saying.  If that’s a major factor in your decision in getting a phone, don’t be surprised if your pictures actually suck because you selected higher megapixels over the type of LENS that a camera is using.

          Please respond accordingly and don’t place words in my mouth. Thank.

        YOUR 100% WRONG BRO. The 1 gig of internals is a big deal. Why should you have to go buy a mem card just cuz your phone comes with a shitty 1 gig. Actually that 1 gig is prob less than 512mbs(1/2 of a gig) When you factor in all the os memory needed sense and android, bloatware(tmobile apps), google apps etc. Also not all apps on the market are allowed 2 be saved 2 an external memory source. There for it has to be on ur phones memory i can name 10 apps that must be on phone mem and they are big music apps and video etc. So having @ least 5 gigs of internals is a very small request

          It’s not a “big” deal.

Not to mention buying a memory card is cheap and easy to come by. Again, it’s people making a big deal out of nothing. Every “problem” has a solution.

        Cheaply made or poorly made? I’ve had every HTC phone made, and I’ve been happier with my Nexus S, Focus, and Infuse. Don’t confuse aluminum bodies with “build quality.” HTC has had poor battery life and speaker quality along with touchscreen issues for the EVO, HD2, Desire, Desire Z, Inspire, and the Nexus One. Where are these phones with great build quality?!

        • Anonymous

          Both. Cheaply made and poorly put together. You’ve clearly never owned a quality HTC handset. And really, Nexus S?? The vanilla experience is great. The crappy Samsung hardware killed it. I hope Google goes back to HTC for the next Nexus. Sorry but Samsung has been and continues to churn out poopy handsets.

The screen is horrible. Washed out if you view from a little angle. The KB is worst I have seen. God knows who designed it. Takes 2 minutes to boot. Hangs. What not. 

        HTC May be durable but for those who keep phones for 4+ years..

        S2 has one of the best screen and is THE fastest. Whatever you say about samsung quality was true 3 years ago. Not anymore.

    Yeah slightly.  The trackball has worn out and I’m out of storage for apps.  Other than that it performs as well as any phone on the market right now.  It was way ahead of the curve when it was released.  I have had the N1 longer than I have ever owned any other phone and haven’t been tempted to get a new one up until now with the sensation.  

    If the bootloader is unable to be unlocked I’ll have to wait.  I want the option of AOSP.

    I don’t know if I should indulge now and get this, or wait for the completely un-US announced Galaxy S II

    • Anonymous

      The Sensation isnt going anywhere so i say wait. PLUS I have a feeling we will find out about our SGS2 prior to this things release.

      Samsung would be stupid to let arguably the best Android to hit our shelves without announcing the US Galaxy S II to thwart those sales. Hell look at how many of us are saying the same thing “This or the Galaxy S II”

      • The ATL Guy

        I am not eligible for an upgrade nor do I need another line so probably wait a few montha and pick up the Sensation on CL

    Since I don’t need my phone to fly, drive, dance, or download every video known to man, I’m very excited about this phone. This is the type of phone I’ve been looking for. 

    • Rawr4dj

       bro your comment is contradictary your saying you dont need your phone “to fly, drive, dance, or download every video known to man” obviously refereing to it being a smart phone. Then why would you buy it? or even be excited for it?to fly, drive, dance, or download every video known to man” obviously refereing to it being a smart phone.

        I’m referring to those who constantly complain about these smartphones not having enough memory, no 3D, or any other over the top spec. You missed the sarcastic tone of my post. Today’s high end smartphones are plenty fast, have more than enough memory, esp if you factor in adding a memory card, and do virtually everything you could possibly want/need a device to do. To complain about something like 1GB of internal memory is splitting hairs.

     Does the sensation have the 3d aspects like the Evo 3d or is that only for the Evo?

    • Rawr4dj

      thats the EVO only Carmen. But trust me the 3D aspect is just a gimmick

         Yep 3D is pointless

     I can’t wait to get this phone June 8th.  For all of those wanting the Samsung Galaxy 2 then GO FOR IT.  That is if it’s even going to T-Mobile.  Personally, I think HTC phones are much better.  Awesome build quality, Sense, faster updates.  Those of you needing the extra 256MB of ram, how will that benefit you exactly?  It won’t.  There will be NO noticeable difference in using the Sensation or the SGS2.   difference in using the Sensation or the SGS2.

      It’s all a matter of opinion and it seems like you are just trying to convince yourself. Now this is great device in its own, but personally I’ll take the unlocked bootloader. HTC would of made a happy customer here, but they had to lock it up. Smh. A shame really such a beautiful device. Now come out with this one so the SGS II can be released in the USA.

       Get ready for sloppy screen, worst speaker… ( I get a headache every time the  mytouch4g is on speaker..), extended boot time, locked bootloader, crappy keyboard layout, oversized icons, unstable wifi etc etc. I do know for a fact that nexus 1 was the best but I have no clue whats going on with HTC these days.

      Sorry for being this way but I just hate my Mytouch4G.. 

      • Anonymous

        LMAO I hate when my girl turns on her MT4G speakerphone! I did a sound comparison between it and my Vibrant last night and HTC speakers are still trash.

        And crappy screen? There are no good phone LCD screens. Outdoor visibility will continue to be piss poor even on the Sensation.

        Yes im a SAMOLED and Samsung Fanboy!

        • The ATL Guy

          Oh ya AMOLEDS rock but it will be interesting to see the quality of the QHD on the Sensation

        • Anonymous

           Detail* not quality.  Nah mean?  I’ve got no problem with a phone’s detail at 800×480 so I’ll take Quality over extra pixels any day.  

      • The ATL Guy

        Yes I would have to agree somewhat here.
        Got a problem free Mytouch which became very sluggish.
        WIFI would routinely disconnect yet no other issuea with other devices connected to my wifi.
        They sent me a replacement phone and same thing please sporadic restarts.
        My Nexus works much better.

      • Starressa2

        I have the mytouch 4G, & love it. I think the speaker is great & loud without even having to hook it up to speakers. Why to you hate the mt4g so much?

  • Kitpogi

    Samsung < HTC … end of story. Sensation will do great just as the rest of the HTC high end devices.

         Talk about iphone clone…I can’t stand the look of the Galaxy line.   The G2x is about as close to it as I can get.

        The Sensation looks much better, probably feels ten times better in hand, and has pretty bang out specs.

    I dont keep my phones 4 years…. I was trying to say who needs a phone very durable these when the tech changes ever few weeks. I have vibrant now and I need an upgrade. I dont plan to keep any phone for more than 12 months…

         For you maybe, but not everyone had a great experience with the G2X. I had mine for a very disappointing 2 days before I returned it and went back to my MT4G. Fast? Sure. Reliable? Nope. Battery life was worse. Bluetooth performance was worse. And believe it or not…I actually LIKE Sense. I wanted the pure Google experience like many people so that I could get updates quickly, but the rest of the phone just wasn’t living up to the hype. Sure, I could have swapped it out, but with the Sensation coming, why bother? I like my HTC products.

        The G2X and its full community of support laugh at you.  The G2X is the new hackers delight, taking the throne from the Nexus One.

        • Anonymous

           ..having said that, I will surely go to the store and fondle the Sensation.  If it feels like my old N1, I may trade the G2x in.

  • Bimmerz

    Since I am not in a major hurry to get a new phone (have the NS to hold me over for awhile), I’ll be holding off to see if T-Mo is getting the SGS2 and N3 – if not, this will probably be my next phone. Either way, I am happy to see T-Mo really stepping it up with phones, and plans etc. =o)

  • HTC Pyramid
  • GinaDee

    Looks like a nice phone for our HTC brothers and sisters out there.  Personally I hate HTC’s reputation for poor battery life Android device, heavy bulky casing, fat protruded camera lenses that scratch up the 2nd day you own it etc.  However I’ll reserve judgement for this device after I play with it. 

    Personally I’d be more excited for the Galaxy S2.  I personally prefer the extremely thin and light battery casing (some of you call it cheap) and slick design.  The SUPER AMOLED screen will be the screen to beat.  

    Samsung better step it up and not let the Sensation get all the love.  Come on Sammy give us the S2 on T-Mobile soon!!  Make the HSPA + bands compatible with T-Mobile and AT&T.  

    • Anonymous

       I had the g1 and N1, and battery life was really good.  I was getting 18 hours or so from my N1.

      Of course, it was running CM7….

  • SamSux

    SamSux S II can’t port anything..they can’t even port TouchWiz to Nexus S and it’s the same manufacturer.Talk about porting Sense UI,they been trying to port it almost a year still half baked.
    SamSux what are you gonna do with your unlock bootloader? Flash TouchCrap over and over again?LMAO

    • Mitchell136

      The reason why TouchWiz isn’t on the Nexus S is because the Nexus S is a pure Google phone, meaning stock android with nothing added…

    • Matlock

      From that comment you just made yourself sound like an idiot! The Nexus S, even though its made by Samsung it is considered a Google device, just like the HTC Nexus One! TouchWiz will never be allowed on a Nexus device, nor will HTC Sense, or Motoblur ever be seen on a Nexus device. So before you come out and start saying all that nonsense that your talking about, check your facts!! 

  • trainwreck

    Is this phone a T-Mobile exclusive?
      

  • Pamma83

     Not sure if this is already answered or not, but will this phone work on both AT&T and T-mobile networks if any merger takes place? 

    • Anonymous

       Yes it will.

      • Mopar6464

        I don’t see any AT&T 3G bands listed.

        • Victor19

          Me neither. Nice phone, but I don’t want to have to replace it in 12 months if the merger goes through. I realize T-Mobile needs to continue to act as a separate company, but they’re not acting in the best interest of customers or their suitor (at&t) by releasing phones that cannot be unlocked to use at&t’s 3g bands.

        • Giraffe

          That’s in AT&Ts hands to keep you post-merger.  I suspect they’ll keep Tmo 3g bands rolling for another two years post-merger – remember, they want to use low frequencies for their LTE development, does Tmo use those for their 4g?

          GSM EDGE.  Panna83 didn’t say anything about 3G or 3.5G networks.

        • Mopar6464

          Yes i know , but i wanted to let Panna83 know it’s not AT&T 3G compatable. 

        • Anonymous

           True… but I suspect that he was not thinking about 3G or EDGE.  He was probably wondering if the HTC Sensation will have complete functionality over on AT&T’s networks.  And I also suspect he would pass on this handset if he knew it would only work on 2G, or worse, only make phone calls.

    After using my HTC HD2, this will be my next phone.  I certainly hope they continue the HD series.
    As someone else said, I will also be keeping my HD2, the original 4.3″ monster.
    Snapdragon, capacitive screen, winmo, winphone, android, meego, linux, dual boot, 4.3″ thinness…..I still find no phone that can even reach near the capabilities of the HD2.  For its day (now and in past), the HD2 was and still is a powerful barrier breaker.

    I hope the Sensation would do the same, but I doubt so.  I feel much less excited for this phone than for the HD2.  The Sensation seems to rely more on gimmicky looks and feel to appeal to the consumer.  It does work for most people, so more power to you if you like it.

    Nevertheless, I will be getting the Sensation.  The only really impressive phone right now is the Samsung Galaxy S II, but I have no idea if that’s coming to TMOUSA.

    That’s brilliant info, cheers for sharing.

  • Taaars

    I am torn between this and SG s 2, But now reading that the SGs2 may not be coming to tmobile then I may have to get the sensation. There could be some changes in the next month, but with tmobiles anticipation of being eaten by the death star I don’t have many high hopes of it coming.
    But its probably for best, watch the US version of this phone get the nvidia cpu version of the SG S 2.
    Also Sammy  has a rep of being ultra slow with updates (and abandoning them all together) If Tmobile were to get the SGS 2 I would have to wait and see if it gets rooted and some good roms were released before I bought one, I almost trashed my vibrant before I started flashing better roms on it.

    • Danishswag

       SGS 2 is already rooted, or at least the international version is. Apparently it didn’t have a crazy locked bootloader. First ROM just came out on XDA yesterday too

    • PDX

      The SGS II has already been rooted and Rommed. Check out the XDA forum.
