HTC Announcing Sensation XE

Earlier this year, HTC released their newest line up of devices, sporting Gingerbread and Sense 3.0. Some of these devices include the Sensation and the EVO 3D. Tons of feedback have been returned to HTC regarding the performance of the phones as well as aesthetics. Well, it seems that the Taiwanese manufacturer released the news earlier today stating that the Sensation has a new sibling on the way dubbed as the HTC Sensation XE, which is a special edition of the qHD screened device that so many of you are carrying these days. This version is far from being only a revamping of the device’s outer shell, this packs a much heavier punch for your buck as it has an upgraded dual core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz and a larger capacity battery for your extended using pleasure. If that was not it, the special edition will come bundled with a pair of premium Dr. Dre branded headphones, so that you can listen to your favorite music in high audio quality. In case you are interested, here are the official specs from the device.
