Sensation to battle for Phone of the Year award

HTC Sensation to face Samsung Galaxy S II and Apple iPhone 4 after being granted a wildcard entry in to the T3 Gadget Awards 2011

HTC’s latest flagship smartphone the HTC Sensation is the only wildcard entry in the finals of the T3 Gadget Awards 2011 as the dual-core device looks to challenge for the title of Phone of the Year.

Targeting the upper echelons of the mobile market the HTC Sensation was officially unveiled in April ahead of a late May launch falling outside the cut-off period for the 2011 T3 Gadget Awards shortlist.

However, due to the HTC Sensation’s impressive array of specs the handset, which sports a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 768MB of RAM and an 8-megapixel camera alongside a 4.3-inch display, was granted a wildcard entry into the final of this year’s awards.

Battling for the Phone of the Year award the HTC Sensation will go up against its sibling handset the HTC Incredible S as well as facing off against the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc and the Motorola Atrix.

The two handsets most likely to challenge the Sensation for the coveted prize, however, are the Apple iPhone 4 and Samsung’s own 1.2GHz dual-core offering the Samsung Galaxy S II.
