HTC Sensation XE Beats by Dre Mobile Phone and Earphones
The Sensation XE is a refreshed version of the much applauded HTC Sensation with Dre’s clever Beats audio tech, as well as a faster processor and improved battery life – oh, and not forgetting the very street red and black threads.
I reckon that the audio should be pretty spanky thanks partly to the baked-in Beats gubbins but the included in-ear Beats headphones should help no end 😉
I’m guessing that the Sensation XE will still be running Android version 2.3 Gingerbread with the Sense user interface looking sick on the 4.3-inch screen.
So, the Sensation XE comes with a set of Beats by Dr. Dre earphones which, when shoved into the XE, tells the smartphone to switch to a different audio profile – now, I’ve tried a couple of Dre’s cans before and this generally means that you get a phatter b-line.
Saying that though – the products with Beats Audio inside have been very good through my AKG headphones and delivered a decent audio spectrum.
Those bundled ear-pleasers come complete with an in-line remote that lets you control music playback, or answer calls via a built-in microphone.
(Don’t) Fight the Power!
That boost in the engine room is jump from the current HTC Sensation. The regular Sensation packs a dual-core 1.2GHz chip whereas the new Sensation XE nudges it up thanks to a dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz.
To be honest, the Sensation was fairly nippy so I am prepared to be impressed by this ‘leaned-on’ version.
24 Hour Lock-Down
Word is that the HTC Sensation XE is tooled up with a bigger cell which is good news.
It’s all well and good cramming in some clever audio witchcraft but if your battery is going to pass out mid-way through some dope jams then it jus aint no good bruv.
I’m still not hoping for more than a days use before needing some (Gin and) Juice 😉
HTC says you’ll be able to get your hands on this urban handset from late September.
