HTC Sensation 4G, the latest phone from HTC, was unveiled this week by T-Mobile.
Looks aren't everything, especially in the smartphone world, where a sleek exterior often disguises a seriously flawed set of hardware. That said, the HTC Sensation 4G, the new smartphone powered by T-Mobile, is a dang good-looking machine – witness the 4.3-inch HD display, the aluminum unibody construction, and the race-car curves.
The Sensation was officially unveiled by T-Mobile today; it is expected to go on sale June 15. The price is pretty standard: $199, with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate. In a press release, T-Mobile reps touted the speed on the HTC handset, which is enhanced by a dual-core processor and the 4G capability. (Back in December, T-Mobile announced it was ginning up its data network, in an effort to keep pace with Verizon and AT&T.)

So what else is under the hood of the HTC Sensation? Well, among the big selling points here are the various multimedia functionalities, including the Sense interface, a front-facing VGA camera and a rear-facing 8-megapixel lens. In addition, the Sensation 4G will be kitted out with HTC Watch, an app which allows users to flick through a library of movies and television shows.
