The HTC Sensation, which was promised to boast the company's unique unibody design might not have it after all. The first live photos and videos that surfaced clearly show that the back panel of the Sensation is removable, rather than being firmly attached to the frame surrounding the front.

The official HTC Sensation page claims that the device features the famous HTC unibody design, but as it turns out, it might be just a cheap marketing trick. Of course, it could be possible that SlashGear have just gotten a review unit with a non-final design, but we wouldn't count on that.

We are expecting HTC response about this discrepancy, we'll let you know once we hear back from a rep.

it is unibody as the hole body is the back that u can remove, the rest of the body is the screen and the stuff that makes the phone great.

Geee wtf guy this clearly IS unibody design in HTC terms anyway...anything crafted from a single piece of metal or whatever is unibody so dont go all crazy debating this as its plain silly. For God sakes the marketing guys clearly just wanted to...

unibody means that you CANNOT remove whole body - just like in Desire HD - you can remove only small plates from back......
