HTC outs list of 16 devices planned for Ice Cream Sandwich Updates

HTC has announced a sizable list of devices that have been confirmed for the upcoming roll-out of Ice Cream Sandwich. In total, there are 16 devices that have already gotten the green light, though there’s no timetable for more than half of the phones on the list (thanks for telling us what we already knew, HTC).

“As for timing, 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.”

Anyhoo, this was announced on the official HTC blog, so it looks like this may be the final list of “older” devices that will still be allowed to the Android 4.0 party.

Have a look below to see if you were lucky enough to have made a purchase that will survive the next wave of Android technology:

  • DROID Incredible 2 by HTC
  • HTC Amaze 4G
  • HTC Desire S
  • HTC Desire HD
  • HTC EVO 3D
  • HTC EVO Design 4G
  • HTC Incredible S
  • HTC Sensation
  • HTC Sensation XL
  • HTC Sensation 4G
  • HTC Sensation XE
  • HTC Raider
  • HTC Rezound
  • HTC Rhyme
  • HTC Thunderbolt
  • HTC Vivid

As an HTC Amaze owner, I’m definitely stoked to see my device on the list; however, I also own an HTC myTouch 4G and was really hoping that it would survive at least one more go-around. I guess there’s always hope that the CyanogenMOD team will keep the device alive with CM9 like they’ve been known to do in the past, right?

Do you own one of the phones on the list? How excited are you now that you know ICS is coming? Drop us a comment below!

    Cant wait to get the update for my Desire S. Just hope they optimize it so that it runs as smoothly as it does now.

    Hi im so excited that im getting the update for my HTC Desire HD ,at first I thought it would never get the update and left forgotten but HTC people hats off

    • prerna

    My device(HTC Salsa) missed on the list. Can i expect ICS update at later point of time??
    Sadly CyanogenMOD or MIUI teams are not providing any official custom ROM for my device.

    Any idea for updating it to ICS? or atleast suggest me a good buyer for the six months old Salsa.

    HTC Salsa i feel is the most neglected HTC phone. :(

    • Loser

      Yes.. that’s the the second mistake i did in last October. The first one is buying CBZ Extreme.
