Recently we have heard about the next version of the Android operating system and the fact it may be launching sometime in the fall. While we wait for official confirmation of this many Android users continue to wait for Ice Cream Sandwich to arrive on their handsets, which in many cases are not very long in the tooth. Today we have some good news for owners of handsets from the HTC Sensation range, as some owners are reporting that the Android ICS update has begun reaching devices.
Since Google launched the new operating system with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus late last year we have only seen a handful of devices receiving the upgrade. Now though it is being reported by the Android Police that owners of the HTC Sensation should start checking their device for updates as the over the air rollout of the software has begun.
Currently it is not known if the upgrade is being pushed out officially or if someone has pressed the start button by mistake, as HTC has so far been unusually quiet about the availability of the update. As usual you can keep informed about the new software via the XDA forums, where many users have reported getting the new operating system.
Meanwhile it is being reported by GSM Arena that owners of the HTC Sensation XE in Germany and the Nordic countries are also receiving the new Android operating system. This should mean the rest of Europe will also get the update shortly with the rest of the world following after. The size of the download is reported to be almost 300MB in size, so it is advised you do it via a Wi-Fi connection.
Have you received the ICS update yet on your HTC Sensation?
