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 [...]
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 [...]
Same Vodafone UK that managed to leak the HTC Sensation before its official announcement now has the page for the HTC Pyramid live and is accepting pre-orders for those who want to grab the smartphone among the first.
The HTC Sensation “Multimedia Superphone” will be available for free on contracts from £35 and if you pre-order now you might get your unit by May 19. It is 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 [...]
There’s a lot to expect from HTC in the release of Sense 3.0, coming out along with the HTC Sensation. We’ve known to look forward to a 3D-enabled home screen, a revamped lock screen packed full of information, and new apps like HTC Watch for movie downloads. We’ve also been looking forward to the unexpected, preparing to experience much of Sense 3.0’s surprises for the first item as we discover them ourselves. One new Sense addition that we hadn’t heard of yet has been revealed today, a very Swype-like keyboard called HTC Trace.
Just like Swype, [...]
If you ever wondered how the LG Optimus 2X compares to the HTC Sensation (ex-Pyramid) in terms of 1080p video recording, there’s a video comparison showing the two smartphones in action.
The LG Optimus 2X scored a 3 out of 5 in our review and as far as video capture was concerned, we found that the lens quality could have been better but despite “highlights certainly got blown out once or twice, overall the video recording is quite usable”. The HTC Sensation was just launched and the manufacturer refers to it as the multimedia superphone. Check out the below [...]
T-Mobile announced the HTC Sensation 4G last week when HTC unveiled the Sensation (ex Pyramid) at the event held in London but there was no information about availability.
According to an HTC sponsored advertisement on Google, the HTC Sensation 4G is slated for a June 8 availability. Not much more to comment on this except for the fact that it will be almost two months after the announcement. Another similar information comes from the official press renders which were here all along but needed someone to notice. If you take a look at the date displayed in HTC Sense below, the [...]
HTC’s Sensation makes it’s benchmark debut, showing up in a series of tests on the GLBenchmark website. The smartphone was tested on GLBenchmark 2.0, but unfortunately only one test was run, giving us a very narrow perspective to compare. We had previously seen the Sensation benchmarked as the HTC Pyramid, where it produced rather sub-par results.
The Adreno 220 GPU inside HTC’s Sensation scored about 7% higher than the Tegra 2 GPU in the Atrix, edging out it’s performance by a small margin. Adjusting the Optimus 2X score by .65x (to account for the [...]
HTC might have made it known that Sense 3.0 won’t find its way onto current-generation devices, but we knew that after a short period of time, once the HTC Sensation ROM was dumped (which happened just a couple of days ago), we’d begin seeing Sense 3.0 ports to all popular devices. Today an XDA user has posted a working (but buggy) port of the Sensation ROM to the Desire HD. If you install this Alpha ROM, you’ll have to contend with an “HTC Confidential” watermark that appears on all screens, and you won’t be able to use the camera, sounds effects, [...]
When HTC launched the HTC Sensation this week in London with the new HTC Sense 3.0 on top of Android, we couldn’t help but wonder whether the older HTC Android devices will get the new Sense or not. Looks like not, at least according to a recent HTC tweet.
Responding to a twitter question whether the new Sense will get to the Desire HD — which in itself is a rather high-end-ish device — HTC said that “due to Sense’s hardware requirements, only our newest devices (Flyer, EVO 3D, Sensation) will be able to support it”. We’re not quite sure [...]
This didn’t take long, just a couple of days: the HTC Pyramid, now known as the HTC Sensation was launched on April 12 at the HTC Event in London bringing the world a “multimedia superphone” and the latest iteration of HTC Sense, version 3.
An HTC Sensation test ROM has been leaked to the public and it seems to contain all the goodies, including HTC Sense 3.0, that would make any ROM developer’s day. If everything goes smooth, we’ll get ports to popular devices and you’ll rock the new Sense on your own smartphone — that is, in case the [...]
When HTC announced the Sensation yesterday, we learned that the smartphone would be launching exclusively on T-Mobile in the US (as the Sensation 4G) and on Vodafone in Europe. While that T-Mobile arrangement should continue to last, other carriers will quickly gain access to the phone throughout Europe. In the UK alone, Orange, Three, and T-Mobile will reportedly start offering the Sensation in the weeks following the Vodafone launch.
Vodafone’s first dibs on the Sensation start with the phone’s first retail availability this May. Pocket-lint has learned from [...]
If you weren’t lucky enough to be in the audience yesterday in London at the HTC Event you can always catch up by looking at the below video, courtesy of HTC itself, with the highlights of what actually happened and how.
HTC has launched the HTC Sensation — previously known as the HTC Pyramid — multimedia superphone and its T-Mobile Sensation 4G variant, both running on Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread and the all new HTC Sense 3.0 on top of it. Check it out below!
Update: The full event was just posted. Find it below:

The latest version of the HTC Sense interface for Android, version 3.0, brings some pretty significant changes and will debut on the EVO 3D and the Sensation. Chief among these changes are a new lock screen, new widgets, a new home screen configuration, and many little enhancements to the stock programs you use everyday. If you’re rocking a current generation phone like the Desire HD (Inspire 4G), EVO 4G, Thunderbolt, or even the brand new Incredible S, you’re probably wondering whether you’ll get an upgrade to Sense 3.0. First, a bit of history.
Most of the [...]
As rumored, T-Mobile will be the exclusive carrier of HTC’s latest flagship handset, stocking it starting this summer as the HTC Sensation 4G. With 14.4Mbps HSPA+ data speeds, the 1.2GHz dual-core handset is a natural for the soon-to-be-acquired carrier. It will be the second multi-core device on Magenta, following the G2x.
HTC and T-Mobile will be pushing the HTC Watch service heavily, seemingly positioning it as an iTunes alternative for the Android ecosystem.
Like its international counterpart, the Sensation will feature a 1080p eight-megapixel camera, 4.3-inch [...]
Major mobile retailer Expansys has posted a product page for the so-called HTC Desire HD2, referring to it as “Pyramid” in the part number. As we heard last week, Pyramid is supposedly a flagship Android device running a dual-core 1.2-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon and featuring a 4.3-inch qHD (540 x 960) display with 16:9 aspect ratio, along with HSPA+ capabilities. At the time, a May T-Mobile launch was rumored.
This new information lines up nicely with previous reports, as well as with some recent boasting that HTC has been doing. Presumably we’re now to expect the [...]
We first heard of the HTC Pyramid back at the beginning of February when certain rumors of a dual-core Android smartphone with a huge screen surfaced indicating it might come to T-Mobile.
Turns out that the mystery device indeed exists and is upcoming as it showed up in Telstra Australia’s ordering system. Additionally, there appears to be another HTC device in the Telstra system but for the moment we only have its codename: HTC Prime.
Whether the Pyramid will come to T-Mobile or not is still unknown but at least we’ve got proof of its existence and hopes we [...]
The HTC Pyramid is a 4.3-inch device with a 1.2GHz processor and 540 x 960 qHD display, according to a report in XDA.cn, which is accompanied by the images located above and below. However, the blurb also states that this is an Android 3.0 Honeycomb device, which seems unlikely given that Honeycomb is supposedly reserved for tablets. The report goes on to allege 768MB of RAM and dual cameras: eight-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front-facing. It’s not entirely clear from the machine translation how many cores are supposedly present in the CPU.
We’ve heard of the [...]
HTC Pyramid, spotted just yesterday in product renders shows up again today with some interesting benchmark results from the dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon platform. Utilizing the MSM8260 1.2GHz dual-core CPU and coupled with the Adreno 220 GPU, the device manages to place middle-of-the-road performance for a 2011 smartphone.
Benchmarked in the Smartbench 2011 Android app, the device scores 1743 on the productivity test, and 1642 on the gaming test. The productivity test focuses on CPU performance while the games test focuses on GPU performance. When compared to HTC’s other [...]
Shortly after showing up on Telstra Australia’s system, we saw a couple of renders of the HTC Pyramid with its alleged 1.2GHz processor and large, 540 x 960 qHD display.
It didn’t take long for Mr. Blurrycam to step in as a picture of the HTC Pyramid, its back to be more specific, showed up on the Greek Techblog. Placed next to an HTC Desire HD, the Pyramid shows off its dual-LED flash-enabled eight-megapixel camera — pretty much like its older cousing to the right. While the render was slightly different in the upper left camera region, the rest of the device [...]
Remember the first renders of the HTC Pyramid? They were shortly after followed by the first real world blurry pics of initially its back and then its front, with the screen blurred out.
A device codenamed PG58XXX (most probably an indicator of more devices wearing similar codenames) has received both WiFi and Bluetooth certifications with very high chances of this being the Pyramid. It seems to support WiFi b/g/n on 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies as well as Bluetooth 3.0. What’s even more interesting is that according to Bluetooth SIG, the device is listed to be available in [...]
Thanks to a leak over at XDA Developers, HTC’s upcoming flagship device, codenamed Pyramid, has been completely exposed — both its hardware and software. The 4.3-inch, qHD sequel to the Desire HD shares many of the same specs as the recently-introduced EVO 3D, minus the stereoscopic cameras and 3D display. Instead, Pyramid offers up a dual-core 1.2GHz processor (presumably Snapdragon), 768MB of RAM, and an eight-megapixel camera (almost certainly capable of 1080p video capture) plus VGA front-facing unit. Contrary to earlier rumors accompanying the first renders we saw, [...]
We put HTC’s Pyramid on the short list for what the company might be preparing to reveal at the UK event it has planned for April 12. Along with the EVO 3D, the Pyramid should be one of HTC’s upcoming headliners, so we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled for news of both North American and European launches. We may have just gotten a sign of the latter, with the Pyramid popping up in a flier for French carrier SFC, supposedly due by the end of May.
Despite some disappointing benchmarks, we still have high hopes for the Pyramid, essentially an EVO 3D sans-3D. Even [...]
We’ve first heard of the HTC Pyramid back at the beginning of February, even before MWC where we hoped it would pop-up, and then we saw some pictures of the device to go in resemblance with the renders that surfaced on the internet.
Pocket-lint has learned from people in the know that the HTC Pyramid will be known as the HTC Sensation in the UK (maybe other regions too). Even more, the UK launch of the Sensation will be April 12, part of the HTC Event in London.
In case you need a reminder, the HTC Sensation (ex-Pyramid) is said to sport a 1.2GHz processor, 768MB of [...]
