In an official statement posted on Facebook, Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC revealed the list of phones in line for receiving an Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade.
The company confirmed in the statement that its brand new HTC Vivid is upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich, together with the HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XL and HTC Sensation XE. However, owners of the devices will have to wait a little, till early 2012.
The rest of HTC smartphones which will also be getting Ice Cream Sandwich include the HTC Rezound, HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Design 4G and HTC Amaze 4G.
