Phones 4U has managed to grab a handful of exclusive deals with smartphone player HTC, including an early launch date for its new flagship Android phone. The recently announced HTC Sensation XE will get an exclusive launch at Phones 4U on 1st October 2011, a week ahead of previous dates we’ve seen.

It’ll also get its hands on an exclusive white version of the HTC Sensation on the same day, matching the stylings of the HTC tablet, the Flyer.

We haven’t heard yet whether the included Beats by Dr. Dre headphones will match the white and red smartphone. The HTC Sensation XE, arriving with a 16GB microSD card, will be available from Phones 4u stores and online starting on £36 per month tariffs.

Ahead of the HTC Sensation XE, Phones 4U will also be offering the HTC Radar - again in white - sometime in October 2011, free on tariffs starting at £26 per month.

“Our ongoing and successful working relationship with HTC means we’ve been able to add even more great smartphone exclusives to our widest ever range of exclusive white devices we’ll be offering across contract and prepay this quarter,” said Phones 4U’s Scott Hooton.
