HTC, T-Mobile USA, and Vodafone UK confirmed today that the Android 2.3-powered HTC Sensation, previously known as the HTC Pyramid in leaked documents, will arrive to usher in a new era of HTC “superphones” and Sense UI.

The Sensation is HTC’s answer to the dual-core devices that are becoming the standard for high-end Android phones. The Sesation has a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 4.3-inch qHD dsplay with Gorilla Glass, and 1GB of internal storage.

There’s also a front-facing camera for video chat and a rear camera that shoots 8.1 megapixel photos and HD video. There’s even a video trimmer tool that can quickly edit videos made on phones (Unconfirmed, but I think it’s the awesome muvee feature I mentioned before). All of those media capabilities will come in hand for DLNA streaming, several video formats (including AVI, XVID, WMV), and HTC Watch, an on-demand video download service for TV shows and movies.

Vodafone will be the first to release the HTC Sensation when the device goes on sale “across major European markets.” T-Mobile USA will deliver the phone in the U.S. this summer. Asia will be next-up in Q2 (April-June). HTC Sensation specs and video below.
