    HTC has lifted the lid on its latest Android-powered smartphone, the Sensation.

    The company formally announced the phone on Tuesday at an event in London. The device will feature a 4.3-inch touchscreen display — with contoured glass along the top edge — and a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor.

    HTC said that the qHD resolution display (960 x 540 pixels) on the multimedia-focused device provides around 35 percent more pixels than a standard display. It has a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9.

    The handset measures 126.1 by 65.4 by 11.3mm and weighs in at 148 grams, including the battery.

    The handset will have an 8-megapixel camera capable of 1080p HD video capture at 30fps. It will also arrive with dual-LED flash. Under the bonnet, the Sensation will run on the Android 2.3 operating system.

    Rounding off the list of smartphone staples, the Sensation will offer HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS connectivity.

    HTC said the device offers better email and calendar features, and will launch apps faster than earlier handsets thanks to its dual-core processor.

  • Though it has upgraded resolution and big screen. It gives the feels of a well featured handset but i am not sure whether it would be able to handle the UI well. And that it handles all the software and OS systematically without untimely complexity .
