We met up briefly with HTC on Tuesday to check out all of the company’s latest smartphones and had a chance to snap a few photos of the Sensation XL, one of the most attractive devices in the bunch. The Sensation XL has a massive 4.7-inch display, which was excellent for viewing photos and browsing the web. We also love the overall design of the phone; it is built with glossy white plastic and aluminum. The metal definitely adds a premium feel and certainly kicks the overall build quality up a notch. The Sensation XL is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, supports HSPA networks, has an 8-megapixel camera and is loaded with 16GB of storage. Music fans will also love the Beats technology under the hood that enhances audio playback, and the set of Beats earbuds that come in the box. Unfortunately, HTC confirmed this phone will never land in the United States in its current form, but we definitely can’t wait for future iterations that might. Be sure to check out the gallery below.
