HTC and Via Mobile Smartphones Powered by ST Ericsson Nova U8500

Chinese HTC Sensation

HTC Sensation (Z710t)

ST Ericsson is showcasing HTC and Via Mobile Android smartphones based on ST Ericsson Nova U8500 dual-core Cortex A9 processor at CES 2012.

The two phones are the HTC Sensation (Z710t) and Via Mobile Smartphone (I could not  find any names) targeted at the Chinese market, although they plan to sell them in Europe and US later. The Via Mobile phone features a 4.3″ capacitive touchscreen, HSPA+ (14.4Mbps) and a 5MP rear camera. The smartphones were apparently running gingerbread, but they will also release an Android ICS version soon, as the latest Android release is already running on their hardware reference platform.

Performance wise, I’ve seen an Antutu Benchmark that gives HTC Sensation Z710t a score of 4729 that’s roughtly equivalent to LG Optimus 2X (Score: 4729) based on Nvidia Tegra 2.

The price of the phones were not disclosed, but the ST Ericsson HTC Sensation is already sold in China for 3380 CNY (About 535 USD).
