HTC has just launched the HTC Sensation Android smartphone many of us knew until recently by its codename, the HTC Pyramid. The Taiwanese manufacturer is referring to the smartphone as “a multimedia superphone“.
It’s running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC’s new Sense on top and features a 1.2 GHz, dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 768 MB RAM, 1GB Internal Storage, eight-megapixel camera with auto-focus and dual-LED flash and 1080p HD video recording, 1.2-megapixel front-facing webcam, 4.3-inch touch screen qHD (540 x 960) resolution Super LCD display, 3.5mm headphone jack and a micro-USB 2.0 (5-pin) port with mobile high-definition video link (MHL) for USB or HDMI connection.
Also present are the usual suspects such as your sensors — gyro, G-Sensor, digital compass, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor — Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, and a rather large, 1520mAh battery. The Sensation will arrive on Vodafone’s network across Europe in the middle of May with the rest of the European carriers getting it in June.
