The HTC Evo Design 4G has been around in the US, via Sprint, since October last year, and for those of you who don’t own one and are not too familiar with the device, it came with Gingerbread out of the box (obviously) but unfortunately it hasn’t received the long-awaited Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich just yet.

Fortunately for those who own an Evo Design 4G, things are about to change in the near(ish) future, as Sprint spilled the beans concerning the Ice Cream Sandwich update roll-out date on this particular handset. Interested in learning more? Join us after the break.
According to Sprint, the handset in question will receive Android 4.0 during the “early-August” time-slot, which is pretty much the same roll-out time frame for ICS on the HTC Evo 3D as well.
Features brought forth by the latest update include Face Unlock, a new refined user interface (Sense 3.6 perhaps), a redesigned camera app introducing Panorama and a multitude of effects like Vintage, Depth of Field and Posterize, redesigned Gmail app and Google + integration just to name a few.
In case you don’t know what the Evo Design 4G has to offer in terms of specs, it comes with a 4.0 inch screen supporting a resolution of 540 x 960 with 275 ppi pixel density, a single-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor, 768 GB of RAM, 4 GB internal storage expandable via microSD, a 1520 mAh battery, dual-mode CDMA/GSM and 4G WiMAX speeds.
That pretty much sums it all up, we’ll keep you posted as soon as we find out more about an exact roll-out date for Android 4 on the Evo Design. Until then stick around and feel free to drop us a line.
Thanks Android Central for the heads-up regarding the HTC Evo Design 4G Ice Cream Sandwich update.
