HTC calls its new Sensation 4G a "multimedia superphone" and we're in no rush to disagree with the moniker just yet. The device has specs similar to those of the EVO 3D — minus the 3D gimmick — with an additional focus on multimedia creation and consumption.
Behind the Sensation's bright 4.3-inch widescreen Super LCD display is an 8- megapixel camera with 1080p video, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.2 GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, and 1GB of internal storage. Basically, you'll have all you need to go about your everyday tasks and to shoot 1080p video which can be edited right on the device.
As far as software goes, the Sensation will run Android Gingerbread with the Sense 3.0 skin. (This means that you'll be able to launch apps straight from the lock screen, among other similar time-saving things.)
The Sensation will be available through T-Mobile this summer. Pricing and a more specific release date will be revealed as we approach the warmer months.
