HTC’s first smartphone to feature Beats Audio technology isn’t the Runnymede (seen yesterday in a leaked image), but the Sensation XE, which has just been officially announced by the Taiwanese company.
The HTC Sensation XE is obviously an upgraded Sensation. It comes with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an extended battery, and “exclusive Beats by Dr. Dre in-ear headphones” that allow you to enjoy “the bespoke Beats by Dr. Dre sound profile, delivering audio tracks tuned specifically for the headphones.”
Other than that (and some nice red accents), this is the same Sensation that’s been available since May, thus it features Android Gingerbread, Sense UI, a 4.3 inch qHD display, 8MP camera with 1080p video recording, 1GB of internal memory, and a MicroSD card (8GB or 16GB) pre-installed.
According to HTC, the Sensation XE will be available in late September across EMEA and Asia Pacific. The company didn’t announced the new handset’s price, but it should be slightly higher than the price of the regular Sensation.
For the moment, we don’t know if he Sensation XE will be released in the US or Canada – we’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything on this. Until then, you can check out the new XE here at HTC.
