HTC Phones to Get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Update in the Next Few Days


HTC just confirmed that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update will be coming soon to its handsets.  The schedule of rollout is not too specific though as HTC only mentioned that the ICS update will be widely available “in the next few weeks”.  The reason is that the company will still work with carriers in each country before it can have the update available to users.

Not all HTC phones will be getting ICS though.   HTC has limited the ICS update to the following handsets:

  • DROID Incredible 2 by HTC
  • HTC Amaze 4G
  • HTC Desire S
  • HTC Desire HD
  • HTC EVO 3D
  • HTC EVO Design 4G
  • HTC Incredible S
  • HTC Sensation
  • HTC Sensation XL
  • HTC Sensation 4G
  • HTC Sensation XE
  • HTC Raider
  • HTC Rezound
  • HTC Rhyme
  • HTC Thunderbolt
  • HTC Vivid

For users of HTC handsets not on the list, this could mean that the latest version of Android is not compatible with your phone.

The Taiwanese phone maker claims that it is already in the “early stages” of dishing out Ice Cream Sandwich for the HTC Sensation and HTC Sensation XE.  Next up will be updates for the HTC Sensation 4G and HTC Sensation XL.

HTC has already revealed ICS with Sense 4.0 on top, and it is a more toned down version of Sense UI.  There’s almost no traces of stock ICS theme so if you’re looking for an experience closer to stock just like the version on the Galaxy Nexus, you may be in for a disappointment.
