HTC unveiled their flagship Android phone, Sensation, in India. The phone sports a 4.3-inch qHD (960 x 540) screen, a 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor and runs on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with customized proprietary interface called HTC Sense 3.0.
At the launch event in New Delhi, HTC claimed Sensation has been designed to provide “superior multimedia” experience to users. The phone’s screen has an aspect ratio of 16:9 which means that most of widescreen films will fill the entire screen and will not have black bars under and above the video. The phone also comes with “instant camera capture”. This enables faster shutter speed, allowing users to click photographs “faster”.
Lennard Hoornik, president for south Asia, HTC said “HTC Sensation is an exceptional smartphone that will win customers with its unique blend of functionality, usability and style. It will create a paradigm shift in the overall smartphone category with a brilliant experience.” “HTC Flyer will be launched shortly, in the next couple of weeks. India is a huge market. We want to be a leading player here and we have high sales target here“.
