HTC recently partnered up with Beats by Dr. Dre. to bring “superior mobile audio experiences” to smartphones this Fall. The HTC Vigor was leaked online but now the HTC Runnymede 2 and HTC Sensation “Special Edition” specs have surfaced. Both run Android and will come with either a Beats headphones or earphones in the box. The specs are impressive for both and here’s a rundown:

The Runnymede comes with Beats headphones “for an all around mind-blowing multi-media experience”. Of course, no launch date is listed or carrier, but pricing shows £499.
Next, continuing on the success of the Sensation is the Sensation “Special Edition”. This is also powered by Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread, has a 4.3-inch QHD Super LCD display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1730mAH battery, 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording and will have Beats earphones in the box.

Loving the increased specs, specifically the processor and the battery. Hopefully these get to Canada in a timely manner.
