While we now know the price of the HTC Sensation 4G for users who are eligible for an upgrade as their current contract is up, or for those who are looking to sign a new two-year agreement, we also now know what T-Mobile will charge for those who are still under contract and can’t resist the Sensation 4G.
For those users who don’t want to be tied down to a 2-year agreement or who aren’t yet eligible to upgrade at discounted pricing, the HTC Sensation 4G will cost $549.99, according to a T-Mobile Twitter message.
The handset’s advanced specs and features should entice a few power users to switch up as it boasts a dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a high resolution qHD display, and a capacious 4.3-inch screen that will support all the multimedia streaming on T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network.
Word of caution though: be sure to get the appropriate data plan. Though T-Mobile markets its data plans as being unlimited, their is a metered component for fast 4G access; once you pass your allotted data per month, you won’t be charged overaged like on AT&T, but your data speeds will be severely down-throttled so you won’t experience the fast 4G speeds you’d expect.
The handset will be launching at WalMart on June 12th and at T-Mobile locations on June 15th.
