Curious if your device will be receiving an update to Android 4.0 anytime soon? HTC just announced through Facebook the “first wave” of phones that will see upgrades to Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012. Only eight models are listed right now, but HTC is continuing to assess their product portfolio, so more devices should be coming soon.
HTC phones that will receive Android 4.0 upgrades include:
- HTC Vivid
- HTC Sensation
- HTC Sensation XL
- HTC Sensation XE
- HTC Rezound
- HTC EVO 3D
- HTC EVO Design 4G
- HTC Amaze 4G
A quick review of the list shows these are all newer devices released in 2011 with either a Snapdragon S2 or Snapdragon S3 processor. Google already said that aging devices like the Nexus One with a Snapdragon S1 processor were “too old” to be upgraded, so don’t get your hopes up if you have the original HTC EVO 4G that features similar specs.
We don’t know exactly when these upgrades will be available from HTC, but Motorola set the bar at six weeks after Google releases the source code for Android 4.0. That should happen a couple weeks after the Galaxy Nexus hits stores in November, so look to February for the first upgrades to Android 4.0.
Did your HTC phone make the list?
