Repeatedly leaked under the moniker the HTC Pyramid, the Sensation, which will be available in two tri-shade colour schemes, is to hit the UK in May touting a 4.3-inch SLCD display and a 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM 8260 dual-core processor.

Sporting a 540 x 960p resolution screen, the Sensation’s impressive spec sheet is to be further bolstered by the inclusion of a 8-megapixel rear mounted camera with dual LED flash and Full HD 1080p video recording capabilities. A second forward-facing VGA camera is included to fulfil potential user’s video calling needs.

In keeping with HTC’s recent spate of stylish, well manufactured, high-performance smartphones, the Sensation, which will be available in grey or purple colour schemes, will boast a uni-body crafted aluminium shell that makes the new flagship device line up at just 11.3mm thick and a mere 148 grams in weight.

Set to launch running Google’s Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread operating system, the Sensation will be the first device to support the new and improved HTC Sense UI. The latest rendition of the visually rich user interface that has helped make the HTC Android devices so popular will add app shortcuts direct to the lock screen allowing for direct access to desired applications. Further improvements to the Sense UI will see Sensation users benefit from email previews, 3D styled widgets and a 360-degree menu carousel.

Yet another new inclusion for the Sensation, a handset that will look to challenge the likes of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II atop the ever crowded smartphone mountain, will be HTC Watch, a video purchase and rental service first demonstrated by the company for its forthcoming Flyer tablet at Mobile World Congress in February.

Will the HTC Sensation’s mightily impressive spec haul and good looks top it to the top of the smartphone charts? Let us know what you think of the new device via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
