HTC Update List On Android Ice Cream Sandwich Upgrades

Since Google’s launching of Android 4.0 back in October 2011, the main question most of us want answered is if our devices will be upgrade-able, and when? We know there are hardware limitations to take into consideration.

HTC’s first wave of Android updates will bring Ice Cream Sandwich to its phones powered by dual-core Qualcomm S3 processors. The majority of HTC’s phones running on this chip are already on the update list, and we expect the remaining devices to be added shortly. HTC would also be delivering the Android 4.0 update to its phones powered by single-core Qualcomm S2 processors.

From the HTC´s official Facebook we know the full list of devices upgradeable to ICS:

End of March updates:
HTC Sensation
HTC Sensation 4G
HTC Sensation XE

Later this year updates:
HTC Sensation XL
HTC Rezound
HTC Vivid
HTC Amaze 4G
HTC EVO 3D
HTC EVO Design 4G
HTC Incredible S
HTC Desire S
HTC Desire HD

This devices are expected to get ICS as well but nothing official yet:

HTC Desire Z
T-Mobile G2
DROID Incredible 2
HTC Rhyme
HTC Inspire 4G
myTouch 4G
myTouch 4G Slide
HTC Thunderbolt
HTC Hero S
HTC Merge
HTC EVO Shift 4G

(List from by XDA member nickmgray).

Of course we would like to see Android 4.0 running on all HTC devices but those who own phones powered by Qualcomm S1 chips should not expect an ICS official release, thanks we have great Chefs in XDA so you still may enjoy the new OS 😉

Please leave your comments and thanks for reading.
