HTC has unveiled some more details about its plans to launch Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for some of the company’s most recent smartphones.

Ice Cream Sandwich

In March, the HTC Sensation 4G, HTC Sensation XE, and HTC Sensation XL should get software updates. Later this year we’ll also see updates for these phones:

  • Amaze 4G
  • Desire HD
  • Desire S
  • EVO 3D
  • EVO 4G
  • Incredible S
  • Rezound
  • Vivid

Noticeably absent from that list is the original HTC Sensation smartphone. When the company first plotted its roadmap for ICS updates late last year, the Sensation was one of the phones listed. But now it’s nowhere to be seen.

Fortunately independent developers are already taking up the slack. Several unofficial builds of Android 4.0 are already available for the Sensation. You can find more details about these custom ROMs at the xda-developers forum.
