HTC Sensation OTA Update for 2.3.4 Gingerbread Hitting Europe

New reports this morning are suggesting the update to the late Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread is currently underway for the European model. The update hit a few unbranded Germany roaming HTC Sensation phones but should be rolling out to other carriers throughout the next week or so. As far as I know there hasn't been any word regarding an update for the Sensation but this could be a good time to include some fixes and update to the latest OS version.

HTC Sensation and EVO 3D Permanent S-OFF and Recovery Finally Here!

It's finally here, what everyone that has an EVO 3D or Sensation has been waiting for. To be able to achieve S-OFF, Root and get a recovery for your phone. It is now available for download but before I get into it I figured I'd hurry and share the news with the world. This is just breaking so bare with me.

HTC EVO 3D and Sensation 4G Temp-Root Available

Those developers over at XDA and other popular development communities are at it again working hard to bring us the things we need, things like temp-root for the HTC EVO 3D and the Sensation 4G. Earlier the group TeamWin found an exploit and were able to achieve root access. Now those nice guys are letting everyone else join in on the fun while they keep working.

HTC Staying True on Their Word, Working Hard to Allow Bootloader Unlocks

I know HTC and the bootloader issue has been in the news off and on as of late, but it seems lately they have been answering more tweets and Facebook posts regarding the issue. Just this morning we noticed three responses all regarding bootloaders in a row on Twitter, and even a few on Facebook as well. At least HTC is actually updating the public and giving us hope that this change is coming soon.

HTC EVO 4G+ packs WiMAX into Sensation

HTC has quietly launched the HTC EVO 4G+, a new 4.3-inch qHD dual-core Android smartphone that's basically the company's latest Sensation variant. While ostensibly a WiBro Android smartphone for the Korean market, there's a fair chance that the EVO 4G+ could get a US launch on WiMAX networks. Like the Sensation, there's a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of internal storage and an 8-megapixel main camera with autofocus and a dual-LED flash, capable of recording 1080p HD video. Up front is a 1.3-megapixel camera, and there's MHL HDMI support for the USB 2.0 connection. HTC also throws in GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD card slot. Connectivity includes both HSPA/WCDMA and WiMAX (WiBro) support, along with quadband GSM/EDGE. There's HTC's Sense UI on top of Android, complete with HTC Watch for renting or purchasing video content, DLNA wireless streaming, stereo speakers and more. No word on when it will launch in Korea, nor indeed when it might make it to North America. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

New Multi-Core Benchmarking System CF-Bench Tested on Sensation, EVO 3D, Galaxy Tab 10.1, A500, G-Slate

So we got wind of a brand new app on the block, one that may well replace our favorite dual-core benchmarking application Smartbench 2011 in a heartbeat. Of course, we'd never wish such a thing to happen, and given that we've recently had such awesome fun with that benchmarking system, we wish them only the best, but let's have a look at another option here. This is CF-Bench, a benchmarking tool that's got support for testing multiple cores on your Android device, allowing you to test both native and managed code - joyous day, let's see who gets the best!

AT&T HTC Sensation spotted crossing FCC

The HTC Sensation has made a second trip through the FCC, this time bearing 3G and 4G band compatibility with AT&T's network in the US. Filings for the smartphone were spotted in early May for the T-Mobile USA variant - which we reviewed last week - and now it looks like AT&T may be getting a model of its own. This particular model has support for GSM 850/1900 and WCMDA bands V and II, making it potentially compatible with AT&T's HSPA+ network (though not its new LTE network, of course). Otherwise we're assuming it's the same Sensation that we've seen before, so WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, a 4.3-inch qHD display, dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor and unibody metal chassis. There's no telling whether AT&T will indeed launch the Sensation - or, if it does, whether it will be called that or something else - but given the phone is HTC's flagship we wouldn't be surprised if they did. T-Mobile USA sales of the Sensation 4G will begin June 12. [via GottaBeMobile]
