HTC Sensation aka Pyramid Release News: Vodafone in UK

News of HTC’s Sensation aka Pyramid, continues to come thick and fast today, just as we’re waiting to hear more from the official HTC event in the UK. It was hotly anticipated that the event would bring news of the HTC Sensation but leaks are coming at every turn before a word has been officially spoken and the latest snippet reveals that Vodafone will carry the phone in the UK on release.

Earlier today we gave you the news that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.2GHz processor had been confirmed by way of a tweet from the German Qualcomm Twitter account. It seems that nobody can wait for the official launch expected at the HTC event very shortly now, as we now hear that Vodafone’s UK website revealed pages on the HTC Sensation, even with pre-ordering details where consumers can register their interest, according to Stuart Miles over on Pocket-Lint, sourced from Vodafone. As far as the name goes we originally heard of this phone as the HTC Pyramid but in the UK at least it will be titled the HTC Sensation. There’s still no word yet on if it may be the HTC Pyramid for other areas.

Other details confirmed were much the same as we quoted earlier, an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, and a 1.2-megapixel front-facer (earlier we thought 1.3-megapixels). One other difference is the OS which has now been confirmed as Android 2.3 Gingerbread rather than the 2.4 which was speculated. Maybe this means the release will be earlier than we originally expected? There’s also 4GB of internal memory with and 8GB memory card so all-in-all this smartphone is looking mighty impressive.

We have now heard that the Vodafone pages that were available earlier have been pulled so obviously this came out a little too soon. However, to see more head to Engadget where there are three videos available to check out this nicely-designed handset and also the screenshot of the Vodafone webpage telling all. Still no news of an official release date yet but at least we now know it’s coming to Vodafone and could be sooner than expected. Very shortly now we hope we can bring you more news on this.
