Talking about Sprint’s HTC Evo 3D and its Ice Cream Sandwich update can be annoying sometimes, because the subject matter tends to be surrounded by uncertainty. The thing is, Android 4.0 arrived on the Evo 3D in other regions quite a while back now, but for some reason Sprint was unable to deliver the update on their variant, making us wonder, what’s the holdup?
Well, apparently the carrier revealed a new timeslot for when we can expect Android 4 to roll-out on the HTC Evo 3D, alongside a list of features that will be brought along by the update. Join us after the break and learn what’s what.
HTC Evo 3D Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4 ICS)
As you may recall, back in May everyone expected the HTC Evo 3D to receive is long-awaited update within a June-July timeslot. Unfortunately, despite the fact that ICS already rolled-out at Rogers and on the European version, Sprint’s Evo 3D will apparently receive Android 4 in the “early- August” timeslot. I could now add in a few words about the frustration caused by this update, but I think you get the point. We’ll see if the early-August time frame sticks or not.
As for what we can expect from the update, the list of features and improvements include a new user interface (Sense 3.6 most likely, although we can’t figure out why the carrier hasn’t mentioned it), Face Unlock feature, a reworked camera app that will now include Panorama and multiple other effects, Google Chrome sync, an improved keyboard, redesigned Gmail app and Google+ integration that enables you to video chat with up to 10 friends.
That sums it all up. All that remains to do now is to wait and see how the story develops, and hope that it won’t drag on for much longer. We’ll keep you posted.
Thanks Android Central for the heads-up regarding the HTC Evo 3D Ice Cream Sandwich.
