New HTC Sensation Will Have Beats Integration, HD Screen and a Bigger Battery – Sounds Similar to the Vigor [from AL]

A new HTC Sensation outed by the folks at CNET has almost identical specs to those that we expect to see in the Vigor here in the states on Verizon.  While we clearly trust our source that provided us with these detailed specs, this is a pretty solid second confirmation that they were spot on and that the HTC Vigor (first pictures of it) will most definitely be a beast.  We were told that it will sport a 4.3″ HD screen, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and Beats by Dre integration – all matching this leak of the new Sensation.

Even better though, is the fact that this phone along with another from HTC, will both include some form of Beats Audio headphones or earbuds.  The new Sensation is getting earbuds, while some are also set to include full ear covering Beats Solo headphones.  No telling yet what the Vigor will come equipped with, but the earbuds seem more likely knowing that this very similar device is as well.

More on the new Sensation over at Android Life.

    I’d rather grab some Beats headphones with my phone than some Verizon BLOATWARE any day. I don’t see the issue here

    The leaked document/picture on both CNET and Android Life CLEARLY says 4.3″ qHD screen. Not HD (1280×720).

    Beats are not great but they’re a heck of a lot better than any of the buds coming with the current (or past) crop of phones…or mp3 players for that matter.  If there is no Beats related software on the phone I see no reason to complain.

    I hope they actually put a battery in this phone.  stupid how in 2011 the battery’s are still an issue.  and new phones continue to use wimpy batterys to run these extravagant app “smart-phones”

  • MOTOX

    OMG THAT would be awesome if it came with beats…though i already own 2 pairs and am planning on buying some Souls…gotta give ludacris’ line some credit…

    I don’t give a shit about corny Beats By Dre

  • Superior1

    This just makes it harder to decide on which phone is worth waiting for. Vigor, Droid HD, Nexus, Im thinking the latter ;)

    • Jason Purp

      Nexus, obviously.

      • FortitudineVincimus

        and why is that exactly? 

        • Jason Purp

          Pure Android, gets updates first, minimal bloatware, never gets outdated in terms of updates.

          • FortitudineVincimus

            Sorry, not good enough reasons. Why? Once we get root I can get updates sooner and when I want, I can delete all bloatware, it will last even longer as devs continue to develop for it.

            No, I think the hardware makes more of the difference here among these top 3 real coming contenders as I can solve all the issues you note with root, while an inferior set of hardware specs cannot be solved via anything.

          • Jason Purp

            You set me up for that one, didn’t you, you S.O.B. ;)

            The hardware of the 3 are basically the same from what I understand. So what if the Vigor has Beats integration. Also, the Prime will have none of the 4 buttons on the phone, which to me is nicer. I’d just take the Prime over anything else.

          • EC8CH

            Plus you’ll be sending a message with your dollars that you value openess.

          • FortitudineVincimus

            gotcha :)

            for me, it is really going to come down to things like physical dimensions, screen type, battery. All will be LTE, dual core within what .1 of each other (1.4 or 1.5 for example), acceptable dual cameras, 1 GB ram, etc.

          • http://twitter.com/Makelegs Makelegs

            Nexus, with ICS and no button row, will change the standard for hardware and screen integration. It will have vastly greater developer involvement than other hacked phones. It’s a no-brainer. Are ya new???

          • Anonymous

            If the rumors surrounding the Nexus Prime’s specs are true than it will have the best hardware as well.

    • Anonymous

      Nexus or galaxy s2

  • EC8CH

    Klipsh S4

    hard to beat for the price

    • Superior1

      DISAGREE !! I need some bass ;)

      • EC8CH

        what do you use?

  • Jason Purp

    Well, if the Vigor comes with any kind of headphones, and it goes onto the Verizon network, it will probably come with the worst of them Beats line-up. Verizon can be sh*tty like that.

    Beats headphones: bloat(hard)ware.

    • EC8CH

      Bloats By Dr Dre?

      I bought the sensation and i can tell you this is the last HTC phone i buy. They’re great quality but they release a new phone every week with some minor enhancements. I’m probably gonna sell it and get the next nexus or get the galaxy s2 which has a better battery, better speakers and a beautiful display.

      • Boom

        LMFAO! Your logic kills me!

      • Dubmatic

        “I’m probably gonna sell it and get the next nexus or get the galaxy s2 which has a better battery, better speakers and a beautiful display”

        Considering your previous statement. Sounds like you might wanna get the HTC Sensation II.

      your crazy. beats headphones are AMAZING ; and if they come for free, i’m sold

      • jimbob

        Firstly, *you’re.  Secondly, if you think Beats are good, you’ve obviously never tried any other brands of note, such as Ultrasone, Beyerdynamic, Denon, etc.

        • MOTOX

          never heard of em… lol i do like soul’s by ludacris though..

        • Zebra

          Thank god you didn’t say Bose

          • MOTOX

            y? im buying a g37 convertible and the 13 bose open air sound system, sounds amazing….

          • http://www.facebook.com/michaeljmcgrath Michael McGrath

            bose, beats, bang and olufsen, etc….

            they’re all praised for their superb marketing, cool design, typically will talk about “lifestyle products”…

            BUT, when it comes down to it, do not offer any sort of “bang for your buck” at their price point.

            in other words… you can get a heck of a lot better for cheaper and ridiculously better for the same price.

            No highs, no lows, must be Base.

          • Max0442

            That should have been, No highs, no lows, must be Bose. Damn autocorrect.

          Beats aren’t bad, they’re just not worth the price. They’re also not very versatile–they mainly excel in rap/hip-hop music.

          Yes well they’ll still be a massive upgrade from the garbage that is most HTC speakers
