The Android 4.0 update for the HTC EVO 3D was a nice surprise (even though HTC did promise to deliver it before the end of the month), so you can imagine how shocked we were when we got the word that Sprint has also started pushing out the Android 4.0 update for the HTC EVO Design 4G.

Android 4.0 on the HTC EVO Design 4G features HTC’s Sense 3.6 UI, Face Unlock, new notifications features, a new camera UI with updated features, improved browser and access to Android 4.0 apps like Google new Chrome browser. You can try to trigger the download by pressing Menu > Settings > About Phone > HTC Software Updates > Check or you can wait until Sprint pushed the OTA update to your device.
