HTC Sensation XE Lands in Cebu; Price and Hands-On Video, Check This Out! [Updated]

HTC Philippines is expected to officially launch this Friday its 2 new flagship smartphones, the HTC Sensation XE and HTC Sensation XL, which both carry the Beats by Dr. Dre signature.

The HTC Sensation XE, however, has already been in the shelves in one of my favorite gadget stores here in Cebu. The handset is selling at Php 27,990 – although this still an unofficial price, it’s an indication HTC might introduce the handset at a much cheaper price (see update below) here in the Philippines.

Update 1: HTC has already launched the HTC Sensation XE here in the Philippines with a SRP of Php 31,500. Now that’s quite expensive than what we saw at MemoXpress.

I did a quick hands-on of HTC Sensation XE and I must say that it’s more gorgeous than its predecessor, the original HTC Sensation. HTC Sensation XE’s qHD display is pretty vivid and undeniably stunning as it is, and the Sense 3.0 UI on top of Android Gingerbread is seamlessly smooth – thanks to its powerful processor ticking at 1.5GHz together with other internals which do all the computing.
