We’re expecting HTC’s Sensation 4G to land at T-Mobile in early June, if the apparently accidentally-posted ads we saw were accurate. The dual-core Android should be one of the top performers in T-Mobile’s stable, with its 1.2GHz dual-core processor and Adreno 220 GPU. Now the smartphone’s one step closer to release, just getting the FCC OK for operation on T-Mobile’s 4G band.
Just as expected, the Sensation is cleared for HSDPA and HSUPA over T-Mobile’s 1700MHz frequencies, giving it download speeds as high as 14.4Mbps.
The Sensation 4G will introduce the world to HTC’s new Sense 3.0 user interface, with new visual flourishes and added functionality like a Swype-ish keyboard and quick app launches through the lock screen.
The FCC documents identify the phone as PG58100, which HTC’s smartphone profiles confirm as the Sensation. This should not be confused with the Doubleshot (aka T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide), which some sites are reporting as the PG58100 featured in this FCC publication; the Doubleshot will likely be model PG59100.
