HTC has launched the HTC Sensation XL with Beats Audio in India, pricing it at Rs. 39,990 MRP, and giving it a MOP of Rs. 38,799. The HTC Sensation XL is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread-based device, bearing a massive 4.7-inch display, and of course, the Beats Audio experience including a Beats headset.
Relatively slim at 9.9mm, the HTC Sensation XL differs from the HTC Sensation XE (priced at Rs. 35,490) in many ways, but apart from the larger screen, it has lower-end specs in many aspects, thus we are surprised HTC priced the XL higher. Differences include a 1.5GHz single-core processor instead of a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 4.7-inch (480x800 pixel) display instead of a 4.3-inch (960x540 pixel) display, 720p HD video recording instead of 1080p HD, a 1600 mAh battery instead of a 1,730 mAh battery (though battery life figures are better at nearly 12 hours of talktime), and no TV out via MHL like on the Sensation XE.
The XL has some advantages though, with a 1.3MP camera front facing camera instead of the Sensation XE’s VGA one, a pre-installed document editor instead of just a viewer, and 16GB of inbuilt storage instead of 4GB. Common specs include 768MB of RAM, 8MP autofocus camera with dual-LED flash, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP, HTC Sense 3.5, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot, HSDPA 14.4 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps, and stereo FM with RDS.
HTC Sensation XL also integrates HTC Watch, an application and service that lets users watch the latest movies and TV shows on their devices. According to HTC, "HTC Watch uses progressive download technology that makes it possible to watch videos without waiting for a huge file to finish downloading. HTC Watch offers the choice of renting or buying videos, and, if purchased, lets customers watch them on up to five different HTC devices."
What do you think of the HTC Sensation XL? Does the larger screen justify the higher price? Or is the Sensation XE just a better proposition? Let us know in the comments section below:
