HTC has shown off a new smartphone, and the first to include Beats Audio technology following its investment in the audio firm a couple of months ago.
The new HTC Sensation XE boosts performance and battery life even further with the addition of a 1.5GHz dual core processor and an extended battery.
"Audio is a crucial part of any consumer's mobile experience and we are continually pushing the audio boundaries to encompass not only improved voice but music, movies and games," said Jason Mackenzie, president of global sales and marketing, HTC Corporation.
The HTC Sensation XE is the first handset to offer a Beats Audio experience - a combination of software & hardware that enables users to hear music the way the artist intended. When used with the exclusive Beats by Dr. Dre in-ear headphones, the handset automatically switches to the bespoke Beats by Dr. Dre sound profile, delivering audio tracks tuned specifically for the headphones.
The exclusive Beats by Dr. Dre in-ear headphones feature a remote control, allowing users to pause, play or skip through tracks and answer/end calls while the phone is in their pocket.
The HTC Sensation XE also ships with a microSD card (8GB/16GB).
