Leaked document reveals souped-up HTC Sensation Beats Limited Edition


If you already own the HTC Sensation, you may not want to read the rest of this post. Our good friend Scott from AndroidGuys has come across a leaked document that shows details for a new HTC Sensation Limited Edition. The new phone will be equipped with an upgraded 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm 8260 processor, 4GB of internal storage and very respectable 1,730 mAh battery. In addition to the nice spec bump, the HTC Sensation Limited Edition will also feature Beats Audio and will come with a pair of Beats headphones.

The launch date for the Limited Edition Sensation is still up in the air, but the leaked document shows that the phone will sell for £520 (roughly $850 USD) – quite a bit more than the  £440 the original Sensation sells for. There’s currently no indication that T-Mobile has plans to carry the phone in the US market.

We like the fact that HTC is already leveraging the Beats brand. Creating limited edition phones paired with Beats headphones will create more choices and allow consumers to pick the phone that that works best for them. Do you think the HTC Sensation 4G Limited Edition will be a success?

    I wonder if the battery will fit old Sensations.

      I was wondering the same thing

    That cool but it was going to happen at one point or another, now the sensation getting beaten or out spec but it still has some time.

  • Richard Yarrell

    Gotta wonder if and when an updated EVO 3D will appear?? Something definitely might appear.. Gotta love HTC and the innovative technology solutions they always provide there customers like..

    • Mark

      Evo this, evo that. Dude, not everything revolves around the EVO 3D. Grow the fuck up. Jeez.

      • mike

        well if it wasn’t the best phone that changed the market and shapped what phones are all today then I’d say u’d have a argument. But it’s still the top phone and it’s follower the 3d is jusy as good but 2x better! It will be amazing what will be 2x better than the 3d! (only thing I wish was for more fun 3d games cause they look cool and are fun to play)

        • jrizk07

          I believe the OG droid is the phone you’re referring to. The one that changed the way we look at phones today.

          Although the EVO is a great phone I don’t think it had THAT large of an effect as the DROID did on Verizon.

          Also the 3D is “just as good, but 2x better” What does that mean? Is that a kind of but not really statement?

          • Richard Yarrell

            Hate to BURST your bubble but last time I checked the htc evo 4g was the first 4g android devices on the market. The EVO BRAND ushered in the 4g technology as well as sprint regardless of the og droid nobody really looks to purchase any of those devices.. The EVO BRAND and HTC is android don’t get it twisted…

          • squiddy20

            Hate to burst YOUR bubble but no one “looks to purchase those devices” (OG Droid) because they aren’t being SOLD anymore you brainless moron. And while Sprint did “usher in” “4G” (since no one’s 4G is REALLY 4G), it’s so far been the shittiest of the services. Verizon’s 4G is easily twice the speed of Sprint’s download and upload. And before you bring up the “battery draining” crap, keep in mind that most people are around an electrical supply at all times of the day whether at home, work, or out and about. And you’re wayyyy wrong about the Evo brand and HTC “being Android”. You do know that Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, and quite a few other companies make Android powered phones, don’t you? Take your ignorant, utterly ridiculous comments and shove them up your a**.

      • Richard Yarrell

        Stop hating.. If you don’t like the comments posted.. THEN DON’T RESPOND cause it’s not like I am looking for any responses from you in the first place..

        • snowbdr89

          First 4g? I really wouldnt consider wimax 4g dumbass

        • Mark

          I’m not hating on you. The whole fanboy rant is cute at first but now it’s just annoying. Sing a new song for once in your life is all I’m asking.

        • squiddy20

          Well maybe if you didn’t say such obvious BS (like how rooting is for “2 plus year old phones”), we wouldn’t feel the need to correct your ignorant, sorry ass.

          Not to mention for the past year you’ve sang literally the same tune on every single Android website in existence (and you insult me about not having a life?), it gets extremely old and particularly redundant.

    • DonQuix

      How did this guy get his own article? Seriously.

      • Richard Yarrell

        Seriously how do they allow you to be posting comments on this site??? Your just another faceless person…

        • squiddy20

          A “faceless person” is still a person dumbass. Try thinking for once in your life before stating such stupid crap.

  • ndokami

    im not gonna lie this s**t kinda pissed me off. kinda hoping it doesnt come to the Tmobile USA market. on another note why no ram upgrade?

    • jrizk07

      So far everything points to it coming to Verizon as a Global phone, no other reason I can think of for it to have GSM capabilities as well as CDMA. Especially in the US

      • alamoe

        I kind of see that possibility but it would be kind of like having two of the same phone since Verizon is getting the Vigor. The only difference is the global capabilities.

  • Tico4674

    Evo this, htc that, sprint is the best, blah blah blah. They are good phones but by no means the best. Richard you sound like a broken fanboy record. It gets old, really! Do yourself a favor and pick up the SGS2.

  • Robot Human

    That’s actually pretty cool. Suddenly more attractive than the SGS2. Good timing.

  • RequiredName

    So is this the equivalent of Desire HD that HTC released last year? Or should we expect something more?

    Desire – Desire HD
    Sensation – Sensation LE
    Galaxy S II – Galaxy S II LTE

    • Nick Gray

      Not really since the Desire HD features a completely difference processor and a larger screen. The only similarities between the Desire and Desire HD was the name.


    While it sounds appealing I will pass…..

  • Palisandr

    I am a long time Android user, but I wonder who would be that idiot to buy sucj an expensive phone when iPhone 4 is available unlocked in the US with 16Gb and 32Gb for $649 (400GBP) and $749 (465GBP) respectively. Android phones should be around $300 to be attractive.

  • marioKART

    lol what a laugh they would charge over $850 on a pos phone that is easily over shadowed by the like of the gs2. OMG who would be dumb enough to buy a phone that is outclassed, out shined, and out run by phones that I can buy for a fraction of the price?

  • SliestDragon

    No where near enough for me to upgrade for. Battery you can get anywhere, and rooting can overclock. Yeah, I would have liked beats audio, but oh well…
