Top Toy: Powerful Smartphone Does 4G, HD Video, Apps and More

The rumored HTC Pyramid Android smartphone has a new name and release date, having been freshly rechristened as the HTC Sensation 4G and slated to be shipped via T-Mobile this summer. Like the powerhouse T-Mobile G2x 4G handset, its beefy dual-core processing power and serious visual muscle will crown its list of achievements.

In addition to a 1.2Ghz dual-core Snapdragon processor, key features will also include an ultra-crisp 4.3-inch LCD touch screen, an 8MP digital camera that shoots 1080p high-definition video and support for the Android Gingerbread 2.3 operating system. HTC Sense user interface options will further display a running stream of social media updates and news, while 4G high-speed wireless connectivity should allow for brisk online browsing and downloads. Options to access the HTC Watch movie and TV download service for on-demand online video viewing are additionally being offered.

Apart from high-grade hardware specs, expect sharp graphics, slick transitions and speedy app load times to be among its bag of signature tricks.
