Three is to add the HTC Sensation XE to its handset range in the wake of unexpectedly high consumer demand.
The XE has been a notable absentee from Three’s array of smartphones, with the carrier opting instead to carry its similarly Beats by Dre audio tech-toting cousin the Sensation XL.
But that’s soon about to change. A tweet from Three’s social media team has revealed that “based on your feedback” it will now be adding the Android powered, music-focussed kit to its range.
The news isn’t so good for would-be Samsung Galaxy Note buyers on the network, though. In response to a customer enquiry, the carrier claimed that Sammy's tablet-cum-smartphone hybrid's appeal was rather too niche for them to take it on.
The XE differs from its XL brethren principally in that the former packs a more compact 4.3-inch screen, while the latter features a 4.7-inch display that almost nudges it into tablet territory.
Elsewhere Three’s latest addition includes Android 2.3 out of the box, a free pair of uRBeats headphones and an eight megapixel camera.
