HTC has just announced its latest Android smartphone, the HTC Sensation 4G, previously known as HTC Pyramid. The phone will be exclusively available at T-Mobile USA this summer.
HTC Sensation 4G will feature a 4.3-inch LCD touch screen, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video, and a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor. A new tool allows users to clip videos down to size in order to maximize its 1 GB of internal phone storage.
The smartphone runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with the latest version of HTC’s Sense UI, which now includes a customizable lockscreen that will display social updates, photos, weather or stock news. A clever feature lets users jump right to making a phone call, sending an email or taking a photo using the same gesture usually used to unlock a smartphone.
Sensation is also the first smartphone to feature HTC Watch, a store for video content. Users will be able to purchase or rent DVD-quality content on up to five HTC devices. Progressive downloads ensure they won’t need to wait for the entire file to download before watching a movie or TV show.
HTC promises “sharper graphics, vibrant animations and new widgets” from its “multimedia superphone.” From what we can see in this dramatic promo video below, it does look slick. Let us know what you think in the comments. [HTC via CNN, Mashable]
