Though the HTC Sensation 4G upgrade price for eligible users is already known, or for buyers who want to sign a new two-year contract, T-Mobile will charge those who are still within contract.
According to T-Mobile’s Twitter message, users who do not want to bind in a two-year contract or those who are not yet authorized to upgrade at discounted pricing, the HTC Sensation 4G will set back $549.99.
The smartphone’s advanced specs and features should attract several power users for an upgrade as it sports a dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a high resolution qHD display, and a large 4.3-inch screen that supports all the multimedia streaming on T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network.
While T-Mobile promotes an unlimited data plan, a metered component for a fast 4G connection still gauges downloaded/uploaded data; after passing the monthly cap, users will not have to pay for the excess data, but the US telecom company trims down connection way below the promised fast 4G speed.
The handset will launch at WalMart on June 12, and at T-Mobile locations on June 15.
