HTC Corporation, a global leader in smartphone innovation and design, launched the HTC Sensation XL smartphone in the Middle East at a press conference today. The launch of the HTC Sensation XL smartphone comes just days after its European debut. Also officially launched at the press conference was the HTC Sensation XE smartphone; both handsets feature the innovative Beats Audio experience.
Recognizing the region’s desire for the latest technology at the same time as the rest of the world, HTC, at the forefront of creative communications solutions, launched the HTC Sensation XL smartphone in the Middle East just days after its glamorous European launch.
“The HTC Sensation XL and the HTC Sensation XE smartphones represent HTC’s continuing commitment to delivering the best audio possible on a mobile smartphone, for conversations, watching movies, playing games or listening to music,” said Vladimir Malugin, Executive Director, Middle East and Africa region, HTC Corporation. “Our partnership with Beats by Dr. Dre ensures that the clear demand for enhanced audio capabilities from our music-loving customers in the Middle East is met, combined with the levels of quality that they have come to expect from HTC.”
“The technologically-savvy consumer segment in the Middle East demands the finest quality in all aspects of a smartphone, and we have delivered the ultimate audio experience with the HTC Sensation XL and HTC Sensation XE smartphones,” commented Mohammed Kais Zribi, Regional Manager, HTC Middle East and North Africa. “We are committed to pushing the boundaries of smartphone development, and our latest advance in audio enhancement meets the needs of the consumers that we place at the center of our mobile world.”
“The Middle East’s highly evolved, digitized community wants the newest smartphone models to be brought to them at the same time as they are launched elsewhere in the world. HTC is providing them with the solutions they require to facilitate their desire to be at the pinnacle of smartphone developments,” said Neeraj Seth, HTC Marketing Manager, MENA.
The HTC Sensation XL and HTC Sensation XE smartphones are the first to offer a Beats Audio experience, a combination of software and hardware that allows the user to listen to music the way that the artist intended it to be heard. When used with the exclusive Beats by Dr. Dre in-ear headphones, the handset automatically switches to the bespoke Beats by Dr. Dre sound profile, delivering audio tracks tuned specifically for the headphones. This new addition enhances music services available on the Android market by offering fuller bass, crisper vocals, and a new level of clarity and range.
Both phones come with storage capabilities that allow you to carry thousands of songs with you in your pocket (the Sensation XE has options of 8GB or 16GB microSD card; the Sensation XL comes with 16GB as standard), while the exclusive Beats by Dr. Dre in-ear headphones, a complimentary accessory included with both smartphones, feature a remote control that allows you to play, pause or skip through tracks as well as answering or ending calls while the smartphone remains in your pocket.
