The Taiwanese phone giant HTC has turned heads with the launch of its Ice Cream Sandwich-powered quad-core superphone the One X, but this doesn’t mean that it has forgotten about its former flagship the original Sensation. It has rolled out the Android 4.0 update for the SIM-free version of the original Sensation. Now, Vodafone has started to roll out the update to its Sensation owners.
Vodafone announced, “Great news. The testing of the ICS update for HTC Sensation is complete, and we plan to start rolling out the update tomorrow, 29th March. The update will be rolled out in phases by the Over The Air service, so if yours doesn’t appear right away, you can either wait for it to appear, or go to Settings > About Phone > Software Update > Check now.”
The original Sensation was HTC’s first smartphone to sport a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. At the time of its launch, the only smartphone that could rival the Sensation’s processing power was the highly popular Samsung Galaxy S2.
Although the Sensation will be receiving the latest iteration of Android, we can’t say the same for its version of the Sense UI. HTC will be rolling out enhancements to Sense on the Sensation, but, unfortunately, it will not be the same UI found on HTC’s more current models such as the One X, One S, and One V.
