Clarity on HTC Sensation 4G Android 4.0 ICS update

By Updated on

While it looks like the Droid RAZR is going to be the next Verizon handset to get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich officially, it appears that some good news is about to land for those of you with a HTC Sensation 4G on T-Mobile.

The carrier has just confirmed on their website that the Sensation 4G has ‘just completed its testing process’ and the next step is for them to finalize an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. According to their notes it will be happening ‘very soon’, although there’s no solid indication just yet unfortunately.

For a device that released almost a year ago though, it is great news you have to say. Some of you may have given up hope with more glamorous HTC handsets out there like the EVO 4G LTE, but its nice to see that a device 12 months old can still rock it with the best and handle the latest version of Android.

There’s no word on whether this will be a specific update to Android 4.0, or if T-Mobile are planning to update the handset to the very latest version of Android 4.0, which is Android 4.0.4 as seen on the GSM Galaxy Nexus and other select handsets. Obviously we hope it is the latter, but we have a feeling that some of you will just be delighted that you’ll be getting the ICS interface makeover first and foremost.

There’s also a chance that some of you with a rooted Sensation 4G are already enjoying a custom version of Ice Cream Sandwich. If this is the case, let us know how well your build is holding up at the moment. Are you experiencing any bugs or not? Hopefully we’ll have an update soon with an exact indication on when the rollouts will begin.
