New HTC Sensation XL with Beats audio officially unveiled

News, Tech


The brand new handset, featuring Beats audio by Dr. Dre, has been officially unveiled by HTC. The Sensation XL has a 4.7-inch screen and will be running Google Android as its operating system.

“With Beats Audio, the HTC Sensation XL continues HTC’s commitment of delivering the best audio possible on your phone whether you’re listening to music, watching a movie or playing a game,” said Peter Chou, CEO, HTC Corporation. “This is an amazing example of why our partnership with Beats makes so much sense for customers today and into the future.”

The specs for the HTC Sensation XL are just as impressive as the Sensations design. The 4.7-inch display will have an 800x400p resolution, a 1.5GHz Qualcomm single core processor with 768MB of RAM.

The only available storage option is 16GB, which to be fair is more than enough for most users.

The new HTC Sensation XL will also sport an 8mp rear camera with a low-light specializing wide-angle f/2.2 28mm lens alongside dual LED flash. A 1.3mp front facing camera will also feature on the Sensation XL. The rear camera supports 720p HD video recording.

As well as featuring Beats audio technology, when you purchase the HTC Sensation XL you’ll also receive a pair of in-ear Beats headphones.

The Sensation will be available at Carphone Warehouse from November 2nd, with more retail stores expected to announce availability soon.
