It turns out we might not have to wait too long to see HTC implement the Beats by Dr. Dre audio technology into future phones. The Sensation will soon be getting an upgrade to the Sensation Special Edition 2 that brings a Beats in-ear headset, along with the following additional improvements:

  • Faster processor: 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon, up from 1.2 GHz
  • Bigger battery: 1,730 mAH, up from 1,520 mAH
  • More storage: 4GB, up from 1GB

These improvements will come at a cost - £520 (or around $847) off-contract, to be exact. No word on release date, or if we'll ever see this device stateside, but these details will probably be ironed out at IFA this week.

    Well that annoys me a bit, having bought mine off contract. But the CPU speed and headphones are of no interest. Just that battery..

    Sensation gets me about 14 hours a day on a charge, so long as the screen has been on less than 2 hours total. Android phones are a real bummer for battery still.

    bigger battery + faster processor = zero battery life gains. I'd take a more efficient processor over speed, dammit. especially when my DHD can barely make two days on it's single core processor ¬__¬. If that massive battery fits in my DHD I'm totally buying one.

    Having said all that, I'm probably gonna get the Sensation anyway. Cool phone is cool :p

      Two days o.O? I wish my DX would last a FULL day. I'm perfectly content with one almost one day of use on it. I can't speak for other people, but I'm sure they're also happy if they can go 20 hours on a smartphone. I'm sure people buying a smartphone realize it's not one of those old flip phones with screens that are .5" and can last 6 days without getting a fresh charge :P.

    So does this mean that we're back to square one with the boot loader being locked, or will the existing unlocker on the HTC dev site still work?
