HTC may be prepping a new, updated version of its flagship Android smartie, the Sensation, leaked specs suggest.
The Taiwanese giant, which has an awful record to say the least in keeping its product launches under wraps, looks set to release a ‘Special Edition’ version of the Sensation that launched in May.
The new handset will reportedly upgrade to a 1.5GHz dual core processor, as if the 1.2GHz number of its predecessor wasn’t already blindingly fast enough.
Fortunately, to compensate the extra processing grunt, the battery life will also be boosted from 1,520mAH to 1,730mAh. And for those who felt the 1GB onboard storage of the original was too scant, this has also been increased to 4GB.
Best of all, though, is that the phone will come bundled with a pair of Beats earphones, just like similarly leaked Runnymede handset from earlier today. Considering these cost £80 a pop, that’s a pretty attractive proposition for music aficionados.
All other features remain exactly the same, which means it still rocks a 4.3-inch qHD Super LCD display and an eight-megapixel camera with HD recording at 1080p, and runs Android Gingerbread out of the box.
And all that will set you back £520, which is £80 more than the original Sensation, but on the balance is just about right if you want the extra oomph and of course, Beats audio support.
No word yet on when the handset will be available, but we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we do.
