HTC Sensation XE and HTC Sensation XL Launching

Got an invitation for Ardent Communications for HTC product launching  in the Metro on November 11, 2011 at awesome Party House in Pasay City.


But before the launching I want to know more about this two HTC phones, So I did a research for this two HTC models.

The HTC Sensation is a smartphone designed and manufactured by HTC Corporation that runs the Android 2.3 Gingerbread software stack. Officially announced by HTC on April 12, 2011, the HTC Sensation was launched by Vodafone in key European markets including the UK on May 19, 2011 and by T-Mobile in the United States on June 12, 2011 (marketed as the HTC Sensation 4G). It was the first official HTC phone to sport the HTC Sense 3.0 user interface. The Sensation was code named Pyramid during development.

SoftwareThe device shipped with Android 2.3.3 and includes HTC Sense 3.0 UI.
The device is a part of a new generation of HTC phones that have a signed bootloader. As a consequence, the phones have not been rootable, thus denying users administrative rights to their own phones.The HTC Sensation was initially released with a locked bootloader. Since announcing on July 10, 2011, all HTC Sensation and Sensation 4G have had its bootloader unlocked due to the overwhelming customer feedback since the device's initial release.

On July 29, 2011, a tool named Revolutionary was released by AlphaRevX and unrevoked which can enable S-OFF, and subsequently, allow permanent root. Since August 2011 HTC officially allows to unlock HTC Sensation bootloaders at HTCdev.com website.


HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio
On September 14, 2011, HTC released the Extreme Edition (XE) of the HTC Sensation in Europe under the name HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio. The Sensation XE provides the following performance improvements: Dual core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz (up from 1.2GHz on the stock Sensation), a 1730 mAh battery, and Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) OS with HTC Sense 3.0. The Sensation XE features Beats Audio support, and can be easily recognized from its red speaker, buttons, and rear camera, and the Beats logo. Located inside the box is also YourBeats earphones, a renamed and redesigned iBeats headphone.[13] While the HTC Sensation is often compared to the Samsung Galaxy S II, one of the competitors of the HTC Sensation XE is the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE.




HTC Sensation XL with Beats Audio
On October 6, 2011, another special edition has been released with Beats Audio, called HTC Sensation XL with Beats Audio (XL stands for extralarge). This version features a 1.5 GHz single-core processor—different from the original Sensation and Sensation XE, and has slightly different specifications, including a larger screen (4.7") although the resolution has been reduced. Two editions of the HTC Sensation XL are released, the only difference in which the limited edition is shipped with Beats Solo HD's while the normal edition is shipped with the in-ear earphones of those on the Sensation XE.
