HTC launches Sensation XL


The Sensation XL is the result of a partnership with music technology firm Beats, following £200 million investment in firm by HTC in August

HTC last night (October 6) unveiled the Sensation XL, an Android smartphone with a 4.7 inch screen that uses specially built technology to deliver a better music listening experience.

The XL uses technology developed by Beats Electronics, a firm set up by US hip hop star Dr Dre.

It has an 8-megapixel camera and a 1.5 GHz single-core processor.

It is scheduled for an early November release, and will be available as a limited edition bundle with Beats Solo headphones.

In August HTC announced it was investing almost £200 million in Beats, and was planning to incorporate the firm’s technology in future devices.

HTC CEO Peter Chou said: “With Beats Audio, the HTC Sensation XL continues HTC’s commitment of delivering the best audio possible on your phone whether you’re listening to music, watching a movie or playing a game.

“This is an amazing example of why our partnership with Beats makes so much sense for customers today and into the future.”
