HTC lists handsets for Android 4.0 ICS upgrades

Taiwanese handset manufacturer HTC reveals the collection of handsets it will fill with ICS

Having launched alongside the Samsung Galaxy Nexus late last year, HTC has revealed the selection of handsets it is to update to Android 4.0 ICS

HTC has announced that the recently released Android 4.0 OS, Ice Cream Sandwich, will be making the jump to a selection of its handsets in the coming weeks.

With the brilliant Samsung Galaxy S2 set to receive the latest Android OS update on March 19th and a flurry of MWC 2012 unveiled devices to land running the latest Google software, HTC fans can breathe easy with the handset manufacturer listing which of its devices will receive the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade.

“We’re all excited about Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, coming to HTC,” the company said in its official announcement. The Apple and Samsung rival added: “We’re in the early stages of rolling out Android 4.0 for the HTC Sensation and HTC Sensation XE and upgrades will be more widely available in the next few weeks.

“The update for the HTC Sensation 4G and HTC Sensation XL will follow. Please note, once we start pushing out updates it will take time for all carriers in each country to get the update. We are working closely with our carrier partners to nail down update schedules for our other smartphones and will have more to share very soon.”

The following devices have been confirmed to be treated to an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade:

DROID Incredible 2 by HTC

HTC Desire HD
HTC EVO Design 4G
HTC Incredible S
HTC Sensation
HTC Sensation XL
HTC Sensation 4G

Some members of the HTC community have noticed the absence of the Desire Z and Wildfire S from the list, but owners of those devices will just have to keep an eye on the HTC blog page for any further news concerning the updates.
