HTC recently confirmed that a number of its handsets will receive an update to Google’s latest Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system. The company said that it will upgrade the Vivid, Sensation, Sensation XL and Sensation XE in “early 2012.” It will also push Android 4.0 to the Rezound, EVO 3D, EVO Design 4G and Amaze 4G through “close integration with [HTC’s] carrier partners.” We expect that the rollout will vary by carrier, however, so it is unlikely that each of the aforementioned phones will receive the update at the same time. Here’s the full statement from HTC:
HTC knows how excited our fans are to get their hands on Google’s latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, so we’re thrilled today to announce the first wave of HTC phones that will receive upgrades: We can confirm the brand new HTC Vivid is upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich. In addition, Ice Cream Sandwich is coming in early 2012 to a variety of devices including the HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XL and HTC Sensation XE, as well as the HTC Rezound, HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Design 4G and HTC Amaze 4G through close integration with our carrier partners. We’re continuing to assess our product portfolio, so stay tuned for more updates on device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Ice Cream Sandwich.
