Although the HTC Sensation 4G doesn’t arrive in retail T-Mobile stores until June 15 (and WalMart(s wmrt) locations as early as June 12), we received an early review unit late last week. This first look shows what’s in the box, and of course, HTC’s newest phone for T-Mobile. The 960 x 540 display isn’t quite as bright as the Super AMOLED Plus screens used in Samsung devices, but it’s a noticeable step up from prior HTC smartphones. So is Qualcomm’s(s qcom) 1.2 GHz dual-core processor which keeps the device moving along quickly.
Surprisingly, the Android 2.3(s goog) handset isn’t too large or heavy, even with the 4.3-inch display, mainly because it’s reasonably thin as compared to other high-end smartphones. And the cover is fairly unique as well; you can see in the video why I say I’m not putting the cover on the phone, but instead, putting the phone inside the cover. You have to see how it works to appreciate it.
