Consumers seemingly like the choice of having a white smartphone these days ever since Apple finally got the white iPhone 4 out of the doors. Samsung look to be getting into the white mode with a range of their smartphones to get the color. A white Galaxy Nexus is set to become available along with the Galaxy Note. Now a white HTC Sensation is to trigger the ICS update for all Sensation models.
HTC has announced it is to offer a white version of its popular Sensation smartphone, and it will come running Android Ice Cream Sandwich straight out of the box. The new model will become available from March 1st, and according to TechRadar it will also be the first in the model range to offer Android 4.0.
There is a chance the newly colored Sensation may also be the first HTC smartphone to come packing the enhanced Sense 4.0 UI. What will be good news for owners of the Sensation XE and Sensation XL is that the handsets will be getting the Android ICS update “soon”, according to a Dutch press release.
This news comes only a few weeks after HTC said it would start offering a smaller number of smartphones to its customers to try and lower confusion. Now HTC are offering customers the White and original HTC Sensation, the HTC Sensation XE, and the Sensation XL with its massive 4.7-inch display.
There was no actual date given for the ICS update and as always may depend on carrier specific offerings of the handsets. Do you own one of the HTC Sensation range?
