Should be able to overclock the original Sensation CPU to 1.5 anyways though right?

Since the beats firmware is already leaked and available for the original Sensation this seems mostly a non-event to me. If they had upped the RAM a bit I could have been tempted...

Yea you can run it all day at 1.5 no worries, you can go up to 1.9 lol its not real good though in my humble opinion

Just had it confirmed the CPU's are the same, the first sensation was suposed to be clocked at 1.5ghz but was taken back to 1.2ghz just before release. But they are both the same CPU

that sucks. HTC should fix this, new firmware and clock the cpu back to 1.5ghz.

Wish they had released a Sensation or any other phone with an even larger screen!

The faster chip and extra battery life would be great. It would be better if they upped the RAM to 1GB and perhaps added more storage - with the SGS2 packing 16GB, 1GB seems a bit light.

Looks hot with those red accents though... and red always goes faster, right?

The only difference between this and the normal sensation I know of is that the CPU is at the correct speed it should be, the in ears beats headphones and the HTC beats music. (Which you can mod into your original sensation anyway)

And a higher rated battery. But I wonder if no longer downlclocking CPU will cancel out all that extra juice that it has.

I'm gonna wait for it, as the alternative path of upgrading the existing model means buying better headset and higher rated battery, plus have to use a custom ROM. Rather have it all on tap.
