HTC’s Sensation 4G showed up at the FCC earlier this week as model PG58100. There was some confusion at the time, with many identifying the phone as the Doubleshot, instead. Today, new FCC filings show another HTC phone, this time model PG58130, and actually emblazoned with “HTC Sensation” on its FCC label. Were we wrong? Was the first phone the Doubleshot, after all? No; the PG58XXX series is what we know as the Sensation, and the variances in model numbers are just regional editions of the same phone.
Today the WiFi Alliance published its own certification document, attesting that the PG58XXX has passed its testing for 802.11 b/g/n WiFi. Both the phones for which we’ve seen the FCC docs fall under this model’s certification; they’re the same phone.
The only thing we’re wondering right now is where the PG58130 is meant to be released. With UMTS 1700MHz communications, it’s going to be somewhere in the Americas, but then why add the extra Chinese text to the FCC label, absent from the PG58100′s?
And the Doubleshot? Definitely the PG59XXX series:
