HTC just announced via Twitter that the Sensation is a go - posting pictures on its Facebook page of the device at various seductive angles, as well as this video:

Did we mention it's coming to T-Mobile? And it'll be sporting an HSPA+ radio to take advantage of T-Mobile's 4G network. Unfortunately, it won't be available until this summer.

Earlier, Mobile Bulgaria (which, as of this writing, is down) stumbled upon a Vodafone product page for HTC's upcoming dual-core Android handset, the Sensation (aka the Pyramid). Availability for Europe and Asia will be throughout Q2 - no exact dates have been announced. Vodafone remains the only official European carrier for the device at this point.

What's the Sensation got in store?

  • 4.3" SLCD qHD display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
  • 8MP rear camera (1080p video capture), 1.2MP front camera
  • Dual LED flash
  • 1520maH battery
  • 768MB RAM, 1GB internal memory (yikes, this is what a spec sheet picture says, we've also heard a 4GB number)
  • HTC Sense 3.0 (yes, another new Sense UI)
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread

Now, the Android 2.3 Gingerbread is a bit of an extrapolation, but given the new version of Sense UI (3.0), it seems a safe assumption at this point. A member at the Modaco forums also has apparently confirmed that the device is running Android 2.3.3, so take that for what it's worth.

And now for the narration-less videos, also leaked by Mobile Bulgaria:
