Qualcomm Germany has let the cat out of the bag and confirmed that HTC will be launching the HTC Sensation on Tuesday, as we exclusively told to you last week, and that it will feature a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor.

HTC is having an event later on Tuesday where it’s expected to announce the new smartphone.

"Qualcomm's 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor powers HTC Sensation http://ow.ly/4ydWj" the company said on Twitter. 

The link goes through to a video detailing the Qualcomm processor rather than the new smartphone unfortunately - looks like we'll have to wait a little bit longer for that.

Pocket-lint will be at the event so will be bringing you all the news as it happens.

We will keep you posted.

UPDATE: Vodafone HTC Sensation pre-order page goes live.

Thanks Jon for sending this through.
