Three selling HTC Dr Dre Beats Sensation XL mobile phone for £34 a month

Mobile phone network Three has now made available to buy both in store and on-line the second Android based Dr Dre Beats cobranded HTC Sensation handset, starting on a £34 a month contract.


’s Sensation XL was announced in at the start of October, with a larger 4.7-inch screen than the original 4.3-inch display of the first Sensation XE Beats phone. There is also a single core 1.5GHz processor, with 16GB of internal storage that is not expandable with a microSD card.

The mobile phone ships with a set of Dr Dre UrBeats in-ear headphones, which when used with the Sensation XL switches the handset over to a specially designed audio profile for the best audio quality possible.

Three are carrying the HTC Sensation XL with 500 minutes, a 5,000 text message bundle with a 1GB data allowance for £34 or on the ‘One Plan’, with 2,000 minutes and a further 5,000 minutes to any Three numbers, a 5,000 text message allowance and a truly unlimited data offering – for £40 a month.
