HTC wants everything and immediately. Maybe this sounds rough but examining HTC’s policy we see the Taiwanese company pays equal attention to the North America and Europe. Of course, not all of its handsets are launched in both continents but the most outstanding ones are always available for purchase in both markets.
So for the past year the HTC Sensation XE was the equivalent of the Rezound launched in the US. It was the improved variant of the HTC Sensation. As for now, the company is actively promoting its HTC One lineup, the most powerful smartphone of which is the One X launched in three versions.
A closer look reveals some common lineaments between the HTC One X and the HTC Sensation XE. This will help us find out what features HTC focuses on when it launches a flagship device for a year.
