HTC Sensation XL – hands on walkthrough in pictures

One Mobile Ring recently attended the launch event for the second mobile phone from HTC, with Dr Beats audio integration, known as the HTC Sensation XL.

We thought we would publish these hands-on images of the new HTC handset, ahead of a hands-on walkthrough on video – where the first Dr Dre Beats audio handset video from OMR has now been seen nearly 68,000 times.

The HTC Sensation XL will ship in November with a 4.7-inch Super LCD capacitive touch screen, whereas the Sensation XE has a 4.3-inch variant, running from a single 1.5GHz processor, where the XE has a dual-core version. Both phones arrive with an 8 megapixel camera, only the XE can capture video in full 1080p HD, with the XL only mustering 720P, but with 16GB of built-in storage for media and the XE has 1GB – with support for 32GB micro SD cards, which is lacking in the XL.

The images below highlight the large screen of the mobile; the Dr Dre Beats audio profile for use with the headset; the dimensions of the HTC Sensation XL; elements of the new Sense 3.5 UI to Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3, with the customisable application’s menu and new email client.

Stay tuned to One Mobile Ring for a hands on video walkthrough, of the latest HTC handset with Dr Dre Beats audio integrated.
