June 8 HTC Sensation 4G launch on T-Mobile tipped by advert

April 21, 2011

The HTC Sensation release date may have been prematurely released by a Google AdWords result and - perhaps a little more tenuously - a screenshot of the HTC Sense 3.0 widgets the company itself has used. TmoNews spotted that the top ad result suggested "HTC Sensation 4G - On 6/8 - Complete w/ HTC Watch & HTC Sense" which certainly implies a June 8 2011 release.

Meanwhile, the T-Mobile Sensation 4G press shot shows the HTC weather widget for June 8 too. On its own that probably wouldn't be enough to tip it, but HTC wouldn't be the first manufacturer to theme a press shot to go along with a launch date.

The Sensation 4G has a 4.3-inch qHD display, WiFi b/g/n, 8-megapixel main camera and 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. More on the HTC Sensation in our hands-on with the European version from earlier this month.

    Too late for HTC.
    By then Samsung Galaxy s2(much thinner and powerful than Sensation) and LG Optimus 3d(powerful and 3d) would have gobelled up the market.
    The Sensation will be a non issue.
    This is very much unlike HTC to fall behind in the race. What happened.

      Too bad the GPS is crap on the S II just like the original S. Oh and the camera is poor as well, cheap flimsy plastic back cover, lower resolution and Touchwiz is horrible. So go for it!!! More Sensations for the rest of us!

    I read this information.

    I can’t wait for this to come out. The only other phone in the same category as far as my opinion, is the LG G2X. Don’t most Samsung phones, or perhaps Sprint, have trouble with GPS? And the LG Optimus 3D is only 3G, with 720 recording. Would anyone really buy that phone just because of its ’3D’ capabilities? I dunno.

    Not scientific but, I called T-Mobile USA yesterday asking about the HTC Sensation and Samsung Galaxy S II phone availability. She initially laughed…realizing I was asking a big question. She came back and said Sensation will be available in May/June, and she had no information on the Galaxy S II. My take…..pre-orders in May, actually available on June 8.

    Also….has anyone noticed how much nicer and helpful the T-Mobile agents are, as compared to say AT&T?

    IT HAS BEEN RELEASED!

    Here in Austin TX, June 8th. I just bought two HTC sensations.

    They were not on display under glass yet – but they were in stock behind the display where the keep the inventory locked up.

    Their un-released flyer has it for $148 each.

    I got one for me and for my wife.
    IT ROCKS!!

    The clerk was not sure if he could sell it to me yet…. I got nervous has he started to check— expecting a big “no you have to wait unit the 12th”  BUT.. his system showed the release date as the 8th, and he sold me two of them.!

    YEAH ME!
