HTC Sensation Launched, Comes With New Sense UI

Alrighty, today was a very hectic day. First the Nokia E6 and X7 were announced, and you read the previews here and here. Now that we’re done with it, the HTC Event was scheduled for later, and the announcement was the HTC Sensation, earlier called the Pyramid.

The Sensation features a 4.3″ qHD (540 X 960) resolution¬†display, a 1.2 GHz Dual Core processor, comes with a brand new Sense UI, standing at v3.0, coupled with Android v2.3 (Gingerbread). There’s an 8 MP AF camera that can do Full HD (1080p), alongside the dual LED flash. There’s a Front calling VGA camera as well (phew!). You’re also promised of speeds upto 14.4 Mbps (download).

The new Sense UI features customizable lockscreens, 3D transitions, HTC Watch (to download DVD movies) and an improved Weather app. Pretty good stuff here.

As for storage, there’s 1 GB of internal memory, expandable with a microSD card. There’s 768 MB RAM, so you can have a lot of apps running in the background peacefully. And then, there’s Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n as well, apart from Bluetooth 3.0. There’s GPS inbuilt as well, apart from USB and Wi-Fi tethering capabilities.

The battery is of 1520 mAh capacity, giving you 8:15 hours talktime on GSM and 6:40 hours on WCDMA. Standby time is quoted at 400 and 350 hours respectively. I’m impressed to say the least, given the massive 4.3″ touchscreen.

Here’s the Quick Preview video –

Overall, the Sensation HAS left me impressed, but not as much that I’d go and grab one when it’s available. What about you?
