The Sprint HTC EVO Design 4G Ice Cream Sandwich update will roll out today ahead of its promised early August release date.
Sprint has confirmed the good news on its website and the update, which follows the HTC EVO 3D Ice Cream Sandwich update, should be hitting devices at some point today.
We haven’t yet heard from EVO Design 4G owners in regards to the roll out but Sprint’s log notes that July 31st is the roll out day for the update which means that if it hasn’t arrived yet, it should be on its way soon.
Sprint’s Ice Cream Sandwich update for the HTC EVO Design 4G follows the Android 4.0 update for the HTC EVO 3D which began rolling out to owners earlier today. Sprint had originally promised both updates for the early part of August but the carrier was, in fact, able to get the software out early.
EVO Design 4G owners will see quite a bit new with the Android Ice Cream Sandwich update including:
- Home screen folders
- Launch Bar for commonly used apps
- Improved Android Browser
- Improved Camera Experience
- Face Unlock
- Resizable widgets
- Add/Remove Panels
All of those come with the ICS update itself though we imagine that the software also comes with other enhancements and bug fixes as well. Most major Android updates generally do.
The update is going to be rolling out to EVO Design 4G owners OTA, Over-the-Air, which means that once the update is available to download and install, the phone will display a prompt.
Anyone seeing the update yet?
