HTC gets special Android 4 version of Sensation
HTC Netherlands has made the unusual decision to finish the Sensation's life with a special version with an early upgrade. The new version will come in Ice White like the Sensation XL but is also HTC's first phone to ship with Android 4.0. The software will give it Face Unlock, the bottom favorites tray, and faster browsing, among other upgrades.
It preserves the 4.3-inch, 540x960 display, dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon chip, eight-megapixel rear camera, and front VGA camera. It's not apparent at this stage if it will get Sense 4.0 from the Ville.
At least Dutch customers will have access to the new Sensation on March 1. Other Sensation variants, including the XE and XL, will also get Android 4.0 as an over-the-air upgrade "soon."
