Many of us aren’t sure if we will get the Ice Cream Sandwich update or not on our devices. HTC has announced officially that the following device will be getting the update. If your not on this list it doesn’t mean that the update will not come to yours it just means its not official yet. The following are Officially going to be updated by HTC from their own mouths.
HTC Sensation XL
HTC Sensation XE
HTC Evo 3D
HTC Evo Design 4G
HTC Amaze 4G
As always if your device isn’t on the list but has the hardware to run Android 4.0 you can go ahead and still get excited as XDA will likely come out with an update for you anyway. If you look now you can already find a few ports of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich now.
With all of the new devices that are released so fast we have a hard time keeping up with which ones will get the newest and greatest updates. To date we can assume that every Android device released will get one update to the next Android OS.
Samarth Rasiwasia, an employee of Google and HTC has posted some information to let us know what HTC devices should see the update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich:
Technically all the Android powered devices capable of running of Android Gingerbread will be able to run Android 4.0 ICS but Practically all devices may not give an overall good user experience . So all the manufactures are reviewing ICS on their devices to check the user experience and will release the latest OS according to the results.
HTC’s list of devices that will surely get ICS : * HTC Sensation (XL,XE,Original) * HTC EVO 3D * HTC Incredible S * HTC Desire HD * HTC Flyer * HTC Rhyme * HTC Desire S * HTC Salsa * HTC Desire Z * Google Nexus One
Just because this was posted doesn’t mean that all of the devices will get the update to Android 4.0 but does mean some will and they all could. Those devices that don’t get the official release of Ice Cream Sandwich will surely get an unofficial port before its all over with.
