After a deal that HTC did with Beats Audio back in August and worth $300 million, the first smartphones to pack Beats Audio are currently being unveiled and they include the HTC Sensation XE, an upgrade to the current HTC Sensation (as if it ever needed it) bringing along extra features to tip you over to the Sense UI side.
The Sensation XE will feature an upgraded dual-core 1.5GHz processor (up from the previous 1.2GHz dual-core) which is amazing considering the originalHTC Sensation was speedy enough as it was, and in the box the Sensation XE along with all other HTC Beats smartphones will come with a pair of in-ear Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. HTC also say that the audio levels will alter themselves to fully optimise the listening experience for the Beats buds, just so you don’t have to.
Release date wise smartphone retailer Clove is taking pre-orders very soon today for the HTC Sensation XE, and they state it will be available for shipping on the 7th of October.
Overall I’d say that the combination of 4.3″ qHD display, snappy albeit colossal 1.5GHz dual-core processor and Beats Audio make the Sensation XE the single best smartphone in the world.
