HTC to have special Beats Sensation, US Eternity

HTC signaled plans for a pair of likely US-bound phones on Wednesday through escaped official documents. One Beats audio processing. CNET heard that, along with better output, it would come with a higher-end set of in-ear headphones with an in-line remote.

The smartphone would get a quiet speed upgrade, too, jumping from the 1.2GHz Snapdragon of today to a faster 1.5GHz chip. To match, HTC would load up a larger 1,730mAh battery (versus 1,520mAh) and roughly quadruple the non-removable side of the storage to 4GB.

Pricing would be high on the phone when unsubsidized, at $847, but it would be including headphones that normally cost at least $120 at retail. A price quote alludes to the launch coming soon, although whether that involves a US release is still undetermined.

Separately, HTC has passed a Windows Phone 7 device through the FCC. Other than a PI39110 model number, little is given out, although it's clearly using WP7's Mango update as it has 3G hotspot support.

It could be the Eternity, a 4.7-inch flagship that could come to AT&T as soon as this month. If not, the only other known option would be the smaller but still competitive Omega. [FCC via Engadget]
