HTC Sensation To Come To T-Mobile, Orange & O2

Three more UK network operators, T-Mobile, Orange and O2, have announced that they will sell HTC's new flagship, the Sensation, in June.

Vodafone will have the handset exclusively for the whole month of May before the four other networks get their hands on it.

O2 told Cnet (opens in new tab) that they will sell the phone, while Everything Everywhere (opens in new tab) informed Pocket-lint that they will stock the Sensation from June onwards.

That same month is when Apple is expected to release the iPhone 5 (despite all the rumours and hearsay that have crept up recently).

No mobile phone operators have yet released the pricing & contract details for the HTC Sensation, but it would surprise us if the phone costs more than £500 SIM Free given that the Samsung Galaxy S II can be had for £498.

Rumours of the first HTC Superphone emerged back in February when the Sensation was still known as the Pyramid. It has however delivered most of the rumoured specifications including a 4.3-inch qHD display, a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 2, 768MB RAM, Android 2.3 Gingebread with HTC Sense UI, front and rear facing cameras, Wi-Fi and the new Adreno 220 GPU.

The HTC Sensation replaces the Desire HD at the top end of the hierarchy and will be complemented by the Incredible S, the Desire S and the Wildfire S.
