HTC Sensation Specs Leaked; Release Date on Tuesday with Qualcomm’s Dual-Core 1.2GHz Snapdragon Processor, qHD
Qualcomm Germany has confirmed that HTC will be launching the HTC Sensation on Tuesday. The tweet, posted from the official Qualcomm_DE account, read, “Qualcomm’s 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor powers HTC Sensation” before swiftly being removed.
The link goes through to a video detailing the Qualcomm processor rather than the new smartphone unfortunately – looks like we’ll have to wait a little bit longer for that. HTC is expected to formally and officially announce the HTC Sensation later today, which boasts similar specs to the HTC EVO 3D for Sprint’s Now Network.
Sensation has a 4.3-inch qHD 960 x 540 pixel screen, a deep and crisp display that’s a perfect 16:9, which means no letterboxing while watching modern widescreen movies. Speaking of today’s modern widescreen movies, the phone will come pre-loaded with “Watch,” HTC’s new pay-as-you-go video-on-demand service with progressive download – the movie will start playing before it’s completely downloaded.
Sensation’s other advanced attributes are an 8MP rear camera with dual LED flash, the now per usual VGA front camera, and plays back 1080p video, although on such a small screen you’d hardly notice – no, check that – you WOULDN’T notice if the video was only 720p. But there is an MHL HDMI jack – when connected to compatible MHL HDTVs (of which there are none at the moment) your Sensation’s battery will recharge while playing back HDMI footage. A more critical negative – you get only 4 GB of internal memory, although Sensation will come with a pre-loaded 8 GB microSD card.
Previously known as the HTC Pyramid, the HTC Sensation is set to be officially unveiled by HTC at a briefing this morning.
