Earlier this month we heard about the HTC Sensation XE, and now it’s official. The Sensation XE will be the first phone to feature Beats Audio technology, which will give studio quality audio. It is not all about Beats as the Sensation XE gets a faster 1.5GHz dual-core processor and an extended battery.

“Audio is a crucial part of any consumer’s mobile experience and we are continually pushing the audio boundaries to encompass not only improved voice but music, movies and games,” said Jason Mackenzie, president of global sales and marketing, HTC Corporation. “The HTC Sensation XE offers a truly incredible experience that demonstrates our commitment to place consumers at the center of their mobile worlds.”

The Beats Audio experience is a combination of software and hardware that allows you to hear music the way the artist intended. The handset automatically switches to the bespoke Beats by Dr. Dre sound profile when you use the exclusive Beats by Dr. Dre in-ear headphones.

HTC announced availability across EMEA and Asia Pacific from late September, but we have already know that Clove will begin to ship the Sensation XE on October 7th for £492 ($777) inc.VAT. Pre-orders will be accepted later today.

    Wow, I thought the original Sensation was a sleek and good looking phone, but now that I’ve seen the Sensation XE, I think I want it even more! I like how it has a faster processor, a sleeker look, and has Beats! That has to be the best feature on this. It says that when you plug in the headphones, the Beats are activated. That would make it great for movies and shows. Also, because the phone has 4G, it should be able to stream anything quickly. I use the DISH Remote Access app. I use this app on my Galaxy S and it is awesome. It lets me stream live TV from my 922 SlingLoaded receiver to my phone anywhere I am! As a customer and employee of DISH Network, I have been using this app for a long time, and once the new Sensation XE comes out, it will be awesome on it!
