HTC's Sensation XE Is the First Beats Audio-Certified Smartphone

HTC's Beats Audio deal is seeing its first fruits come forth with their Sensation update, the Sensation XE. It's sure to sound great; it even has its own pair of Beats by Dre headphones.

On the inside, it's inherently the same phone as the original Sensation, just a bit better-fied. It's got a new 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor with a 8MP 1080p video camera. Yet they're still skinning with Android with Sense for no necessary reason. And no 4G. But it's gotten a nice black and red facelift. And having Beats under the hood for those optimized headphones certainly makes it stand out. [HTC]
