HTC Sensation Forum Added
It has been an interesting week for HTC, as they have unveiled their new flagship devices: the HTC Sensation (also known as the HTC Pyramid). According to HTC’s official website, this phone is a multimedia super-phone, and judging from the specs… they are not kidding. The new phone was shown at the HTC UK Event this past Monday and the official specs, finally revealed. It sports a dual core 1.2 GHz processor, which is bound to give your phone plenty of room to breathe with processor hungry applications, a crisp 4.3 inch qHD screen, front and rear cameras (with the latter being an 8 MP camera), the latest version of Sense, and much more. The device is comparable in power with the anticipated HTC EVO 3D, and in fact it is very similar with the difference that the 3D has… well, 3D capability.
Now that the intros are formalized, you will probably be happy to know that we have added a section for this device. It may be a tad early but the device will hit the shelves soon. Plus, as it is traditional, leaked dumps tend to show up without much anticipation, so we wanted to get ready for it this time. If you have any information about this new device, please share it with the rest of the community.
