HTC Sensation XE Brings Beats Audio, 1.5Ghz CPU and Big Battery
The HTC Sensation XE is the first HTC smartphone to make use of the recent Beats partnership, which includes special software to deliver a premium audio experience.
The HTC Sensation XE has a 1.5GHz Qualcom processor, 4.3″ qHD Display with a 960×540 resolution and a 1730mAh battery. There is an 8MP rear camera and a front facing VGA camera as well.
Along with the Beats Software, which claims to allow you to experience music the way the artist intended you to, the Sensation XE also includes Beats By Dre headphones which will turn on the Beats Audio mode when plugged in.
Like many other Beats Audio products, the Sensation XE will have red highlights and s ont he device and the standard Android buttons will have red backlighting.
The HTC Sensation XE will be available in Europe and Asia this month at a yet to be announced price. There is no current announcement about U.S. availability of the first HTC smartphone with Beats audio.
Hopefully HTC will continue to bundle Beats headphones with these smartphones, like the HTC Runnymede or the HTC ThunderBolt 2, which could come later this year.

Did anyone notice with their HTC Sensation when charging the phone and if you stroke any metal part of the phone you get a strange feeling. It feels like as if this surface finishing quality, but this feeling is gone when stopped charging. You get the strongest feeling if you stroke the top of the phone where the ON/OFF button and the headphone jack is. It has has be some sort of minor electric shock its giving. I got the XE replaced but still the same issue :-s
