HTC Amaze 4G to get Ice Cream Sandwich on May 21
As owners of the HTC Sensation 4G are gleefully receiving their OTA update of Ice Cream Sandwich, which has been available since May 16, we expect to hear the same collective sigh of relief from HTC Amaze 4G owners pretty soon. It seems we’re not that far off the mark when we said that ICS upgrade for the phone would come not too long after it lands on HTC Sensation 4G.
As can be seen from the updated support page for HTC Amaze 4G on T-Mobile’s website, the carrier is ready to roll out ICS for HTC Amaze 4G starting May 21. Since it’s an OTA update, all you have to do is check your phone for an update notification on the due date. You can also request the update via HTC software updates menu and tap “Check Now”.
The update will bring the following to your HTC Amaze 4G:
- Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
- Sense 3.6
- System bar enhancements to easily view recent apps.
- Re-sizeable widgets
- Lock screen actions including pull down notifications and adjust volume while device is locked.
- Data usage controls.
- Face Unlock
- Home screen folders
- Improved battery life
With three days away from the OTA update for the HTC Amaze 4G, you could use the remaining time to say goodbye to the good old Gingerbread. Enjoy your ICS treat soon.
