HTC prepping Sensation Special Edition with Beats technology (exclusive)
A refreshed, special edition of the popular Android handset will feature enhanced audio and hardware boosts.
If you thought HTC was only going to includein its , then you'd mistaken.
In fact, it appears the manufacturer has decided to revise one of its recent and popular models, the. According to details obtained by CNET today, a coming special edition of the phone will feature not only better audio, but also a faster CPU, more internal storage, and a higher-capacity battery.
As one might expect, the Sensation Special Edition comes with a fancy set of headphones that will appeal to music lovers everywhere. Featuring a remote control for easy music selection, they should definitely complement the "fine-tuned" internal audio experience.
The processor speed is listed as a Qualcomm 8260 1.5GHz processor, up from the dual-core 1.2GHz in the current iteration. Not that it matters much when it comes to enjoying music, but it's hard to imagine anyone complaining about a faster chipset. Internal storage gets quadrupled to 4GB, and battery life gets a punch up, going from 1,520mAH to a more respectable 1,730mAh.
Considering the slide deck shows a price of £520 ($847 U.S.), it's safe to assume that HTC is ready to debut the phone in short order. If that price seems high, consider that a typical pair of Beats by Dr. Dre in-ear headphones start at $119 a pair.
With IFA under way this week and HTCaround the world, I'd look for the company to make an official announcement in the next few days.
