HTC is preparing the launch of an HTC Sensation 2 Special Edition with Beats Audio by Dr. Dre. This seems like it should be a rumor since the original HTC Sensation has only been out a few months and all HTC phones to be released from here on out are supposed to come with beats regardless.
Either way it seems that this device will be released by HTC and according to CNet will have an upgraded 1.5 GHz dual core processor which is up from the original 1.2 GHz processor. While the leaked document with its features say it will have an advanced HD screen it looks like it will be the same 4.3 inch qHD display as the original. Also the rear camera seems to be the same 8 MP camera. The battery will however have an upgraded battery from 1,520 mAH up to a 1,730 mAH battery.
These are however “leaked” details on the device so if you want to believe it go for it but I would wait for something official.
