AT&T version of the HTC Sensation / Pyramid hits the FCC
Here’s some excellent news for AT&T customers who can’t wait to get their hands on the HTC Sensation. Today, a version of the Sensation with support for AT&T’s GSM 850 and 1900 bands, as well as WCDMA II and V bands, won FCC approval, a good indication that we’ll see the Sensation on AT&T soon.
The Sensation, which was previously known by the codename “Pyramid,” originally hit the FCC last month as the PG58110. However, at that time the device only offered support for T-Mobile USA’s 4G band, meaning that AT&T customers were out of luck…at least if they wanted 3G on their phone. The version of the PG58110 that hit the FCC today will support AT&T’s 3G network, thanks to support for WCDMA bands II and V.
We don’t have pricing or launch date information for the AT&T version of the Sensation, and there’s a good chance that the Sensation will be renamed if it makes its way to another carrier. So far, neither HTC nor AT&T has confirmed that the Sensation will be launching on AT&T, but at the very least AT&T users will be able to buy an unlocked version of the device that passed through the FCC today and pop in an AT&T SIM card for 3G goodness.
