In case you missed it, HTC unveiled its latest creation yesterday, a pretty impressive looking new smartphone – the Sensation XL.

You can read all about it in our piece from yesterday, but here’s its basic specs again in a nutshell:

  • 4.7-inch display
  • Single-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor
  • 768MB RAM,
  • 8-megapixel camera, featuring a f/2.2, 28mm wide-angle lens with BSI sensor
  • Records 720p HD video and stereo sound

The HTC Sensation XL is scheduled to ship to EMEA and Asia Pacific regions from early November. But The Next Web was at the HTC launch event in London yesterday, and we were able to grab a few minutes with the new handset to get a better feel for it:
