T-Mobile has been vague about when the HTC Sensation 4G is going to be released, but information leaking out of this carrier indicates that this cutting-edge Android smartphone will be on the market in a little under a month.
According to an internal T-Mobile document that has been made public, the Sensation is going to be introduced on Wednesday, June 8. A separate leak from the retailer Target gives a release date of June 12, but T-Mobile could be making this store wait a few days after the carrier launch.
The Target leak was also the source of the price for this upcoming smartphone: $200 with a two-year contract. It’s not clear if a mail-in rebate will be required to get this price. The non-contract cost has not yet been revealed.

It will also have a rear-facing 8 megapixel camera that can record 1080p video at 30 fps. It’s not clear if this model will have a front-facing camera.
