Beats-packing HTC Sensation XL Announced, Has A 4.7-inch SLCD

Today HTC announces the latest member of its Android smartphone lineup called Sensation XL. The droid is the second HTC device to feature the Beats audio enhancements and a special pair of Beats headphones in its retail package.

On the inside, the Gingerbread-running HTC Sensation XL is quite similar to the Windows Phone-powered HTC Titan - elegant Qualcomm MSM8255 chipset, featuring a 1.5 Giga Hertz (GHz) Scorpion Central Processing Units (CPU) (single-core) and the Adreno 205 GPU. The Random-Access Memory (RAM) amount has been increased from 512 Mega Bytes (MB) to 768 MB, though.

Outside you acquire a 4.7" S-LCD of WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) resolution, which makes up for pixel density of 199 ppi. There's a Gorilla Glass panel in front of that to protect it from scratches. The profile of the metal-clad smartphone measures just 9.9mm.

The HTC Sensation XL 8 megapixel main capturing camera is particularly fascinating as it features a 28mm wide-angle lens and colorful F/2.2 lens, which should improve its low-light performance dramatically. The 720p video-recording isn't quite so impressive, though.

The HTC Sensation XL offers 16GB of internal storage, but sadly that's not expandable through a microSD card slot.

Local connectivity is nicely covered with microUSB, GPS, Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) b/g/n and Bluetooth all on board. Network data speeds max out at 14.4 Mbps for downloads and 5.76 Mbps for uploads.

The final noteworthy features of the HTC Sensation XL are a 3.5mm audio jack, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing capturing camera and a built-in gyroscope.

The HTC Sensation XL should become available across EMEA and Asia Pacific from early November. In EMEA, HTC will also be offering a limited edition bundle that includes special edition Beats Solo headphones.
