Yesterday, T-Mobile officially announced the HTC Sensation 4G, a beastly dual-core smartphone that will be available at T-Mobile stores on June 15th and through select Walmart outlets on June 12th. However, there was one thing missing in the announcement. The pricing. Fortunately, T-Mobile revealed that to us today.
The HTC Sensation 4G is going to cost, as we suspected, $199 on a new two year contract with the carrier. That price, rather unfortunately, is going to come after a $50 mail-in rebate which means you’ll originally have to pay $250 for the device.
That pricing should be welcomed by those wanting the Sensation 4G because recently, T-Mobile jacked up the price of their other dual-core smartphone – the G2x – to $250 without a mail-in rebate.
Of course, if the Sensation 4G proves as popular as the G2x – or as buggy – we could see a price jump on it as well.
So, if you’re thinking about buying it you might want to be thinking about buying it early. And as a friendly reminded, here are the key specs to think about. The Sensation has a 4.3-inch SLCD touchcreen with 540×960 resolution, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1080p video recording, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread right out of the box.
Now, if only someone would confirm an unlocked bootloader.
