‚With Beats Audio, the HTC Sensation XL continues HTC’s commitment of delivering the best audio possible on your phone whether you’re listening to music, watching a movie or playing a game,‚ said Peter Chou, CEO, HTC Corporation. ‚This is an amazing example of why our partnership with Beats makes so much sense for customers today and into the future.‚

‚HTC is an incredible partner and has completely embraced our desire to make the music experience on the mobile phone as powerful and as rich as it can be,‚ said Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Beats by Dr. Dre.

With the 4.7‚ screen, slim 9.9mm design and Beats Audio integration, the HTC Sensation XL was specifically created to deliver a high-end entertainment experience with audio and visuals for music, movies and games. The HTC Sensation XL features audio tuning by Beats that ensures users hear their music as the artist intended.

The HTC Sensation XL includes new lightweight urBeats headphones, created exclusively to integrate with the Beats’ audio profile on the device.

Customers can also send music recommendations and track information to friends over SMS, email or through their Facebook profile. To allocate an audio alert to an incoming call or message from friends and family, a ringtone trimmer allows you to edit a music track and add it to a friend’s contact profile.

The HTC Sensation XL boasts an 8MP camera, featuring a f/2.2, 28mm wide-angle lens with BSI sensor to fit more of the scene into a shot and for better low-light performance. In video mode, the HTC Sensation XL enables customers to record with clarity and stereo sound ‚ for sharing on YouTube, Facebook or a TV.
