In the midst of potentially being acquired by AT&T, the HTC Sensation 4G, formally known as the HTC Pyramid, has finally been unveiled and will be released by T-Mobile this summer.

The Android-powered phone is comparable to the Sprint Evo and includes a 4.3-inch super LCD screen, with a 540x960 resolution, dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, Android Gingerbread (2.3) with Sense 3.0 and a qHD display.

It also contains many new features, such as a personalized lock screen that allows the user to visit their most used apps. The Sensation will have Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, Wi-Fi, DLNA and the ability to stream to other DLNA-enabled devices. It will also come equipped with 1GB of internal memory and 768MB of RAM.

“Consumers have quickly transformed smartphones into consumer lifestyle hubs that are pocket-sized entertainment centers that enable people to take their favorite multimedia content with them wherever they go. The new HTC Watch service makes it fun and easy for people to access premium movies and TV shows while on the go,” says Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. “The HTC Sensation 4G combines this great multimedia experience within the latest HTC Sense experience in a premium device that delivers a powerful and unprecedented smartphone to our customers.”

Before its release date in the summer, the Sensation will launch in the UK, Germany, and the rest of HTC’s key spots in the European market.
