HTC Desire S, HTC Rhyme to get Android 4.0 ICS update this June

Most of the HTC Sensation line users received their Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update since March but HTC fans are wondering when the other phones will get their taste of ICS.


Well HTC released their schedule for ICS update for global devices. Based on the list, the HTC Desire S, HTC Rhyme and HTC Incredible S will get the Android 4.0 update starting this June. Surprisingly, even the HTC Desire HD will also get an ICS update starting this July.

So what about the other phones? HTC said that handsets with less than 512MB ROM won’t be getting Ice Cream Sandwich. This means handsets like the HTC ChaCha, HTC Wildfire S, and HTC Explorer are stuck with Gingerbread. Their tablet, the HTC Flyer, won’t get the update as well and will remain at Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

Here’s the complete Android 4.0 update schedule from HTC

    I was surprised at the current market value of the Desire HD. Pretty affordable considering the specs, and now it’s getting ICS. Not bad.

  • and now we see phones stuck in gingerbread and left in the dark. sad

      if they can’t guarantee a smooth experience when they decide to upgrade mas ok na siguro na gingerbread na lang. besides, gingerbread is not bad by itself naman.
