Few days back, we reported about the imminent release of the HTC Sensation XE in UK and also shed light on some of the specs of this powerful beast. Just to reiterate HTC Sensation XE will be an ungraded edition of the already very popular and powerful HTC Sensation supporting a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU as well as an extended battery. Another novelty lies in the inclusion of Dr. Dre branded high quality headphones that will for sure appeal to music enthusiasts. You may already know that original HTC Sensation supports 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor. 768MB of RAM, Android 2.3 Gingerbread preinstalled and of course excellent 8MP camera on board. HTC seems to be forced to upgrade the device to combat the ever popular Samsung Galaxy S2 (SII) release.
Now the good news is that if you are on the HTC Sensation and may bought it recently but felt a bit upset already by the upcoming release of the HTC Sensation then you can upgrade your phone to the HTC Sensation XE for free using an excellent free custom ROM available free of charge available from the XDA forums. This custom ROM called Android Revolution HD ROM is based on the Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) and Beats Audio technology. Other nice exciting features include improved Andreno200 configuration, it has enabled GPU UI rendering, SD Card speed tweak, battery auto-calibration, a data partition special speed tweak, and the 3D Engine was overclocked from 266.6 MHz to 320 MHz
