HTC has launched its new multimedia phone HTC Sensation 4G in the United States.
The phone is releasing on T-Mobile’s network in the U.S. Though HTC normally brings its new smartphones to India soon after their launch, we don’t expect the Sensation to land here in its present version.
The Sensation is a 4G phone and in India, 3G is still trying to find its feet. It would be quite some time before the fourth-generation technology services start in India. Related: Reliance testing 4G broadband in India

The phone feels solid once held in the hand. Its display glass is contoured along the entire edge of the screen, so it also protects the screen from grit and sand when it’s face down. Also see: HTC Desire S smartphone launched in India
