You won’t have to look hard to see that HTC is proud of their purchase – the Beats by Dre brand of headphones/software is marketing gold targeted at the younger generation of audiophiles. Word on the web was that the HTC Vigor would of been the first offering of Beats technology on an HTC device, then we heard about the limited edition ‘Sensation 2‘. And here it is.
The Sensation XE is black and red (matching the Beats look) and is basically just a Sensation on audio steroids. The device has the usual 4.3″ screen, but now powered by a beasty 1.5GHz dual-core processor coupled with an 8MP camera plus a VGA front-facing camera. And what good is a Beats phone if it doesn’t come with some headphones. Every box will come packaged with its own set of in-ear Beats by Dre headphones.
From a quick look at the specs sheet, availability looks to be limited at best. If this phone is making its way to the States, then we all know it will be a hot seller.
