HTC Sensation 4G (Pyramid) US Release Official: Summer on T-Mobile

We’ve been waiting to hear official news about the HTC Sensation, formerly known as the HTC Pyramid, from the HTC event held in London today. Today we’ve already given you news of leaks regarding the processor, and also earlier a leak showing that Vodafone would be the UK carrier. However the news is now official and we have some details for its release in both the UK and the US, where it will be carried by T-Mobile.

We’ve already told how the HTC Pyramid was renamed as the HTC Sensation for the UK and now the name for the US has been confirmed as the HTC Sensation 4G, with all mention of the name Pyramid appearing forgotten. Chris Hall of Pocket-Lint tells the news from the HTC event and as we previously thought, in the US the phone is coming to T-Mobile. This is one seriously impressive device with specs all now confirmed as previously expected, that 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, 768MB of RAM, and it will also have Sense 3.0.

The 4.3-inch display is even better than first anticipated with Gorilla Glass and a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels and we reckon that on release this one will fly off the shelves. As we previously stated the phone will be on Vodafone in the UK, with exclusivity for a time and will be released in mid-May for the UK and Europe. Those of you in the US will have to wait a little longer but the HTC Sensation 4G is heading your way and will be released on T-Mobile in the summer. No further date is yet available.

Ubergizmo also reports on the HTC Sensation and says that it’s ready to “set ripples in the smartphone world.” The HTC Press Release for the Sensation 4G is also linked to at the bottom of Ubergizmo’s report so check that out if you’d like to read more. Are you waiting for the release of the Sensation? What will make you choose this over other upcoming 4G smartphones such as the Motorola Droid Bionic on Verizon? Let us know with your comments.
