Default HTC reveal DHD will get ICS or did they? LoL

Don't know if anyone has seen this already but it would appear from reading the RCMix3D dev blog that the DHD will get ICS.

Read on here: Official RCMix3D Team Blog: HTC confirms ICS update for 7 smartphones via Facebook

I wonder how much of Sense they're going to have to rip out to get it to work properly though?

Good question but doesn't concern me in the slightest. Just be good to have an official base for the devs to crack on with rather than the ports we are getting.

HTC Ireland have posted that the Turkish post was by a Facebook user and not by HTC. They have confirmed the Sensations are scheduled for update in coming months. I've asked about DHD.....

just a thought when was the DesireHD released



I'm sure it is less than 18 months ago by which they should give us the update

I'm also hoping that HTC roll out the Ice-cream sandwich OS to the Desire HD, but I don't think it will happen. Everywhere that I have been reading tells me that only the HTC Sensation will get the update and maybe some of the other newer models. One of the reasons it the difference in hardware between the older and newer models. The main difference between the desire and sensation is the processor. The Sensation having a dual-core 1.2 GHz scorpion processor and the desire a 1 GHz scorpion cpu.

Even if they do decide to roll it out, it could be sometime before your phone operator then delivers it to its customers after they have made several operator specific changes.

Fingers crossed.

If you're on Vodafone in the UK I really do think we'll get it.

Desire HD was released in Nov. 2010, so ICS is within 18 months... but I do not think we are getting it.

I think they have to update it. It's a remarkably popular device and more than capable of running ICS, and can certainly still give the IPhone 4S a run for it's money, even without a front facing camera.

Here are HTC's newest line of phone(s):
HTC one X
HTC one S
HTC one V

the lowest of the 3 is HTC one V and it's hardware spec is:
single core 1 GHz (equal to DHD)
WVGA screen size (equal to DHD)
no front camera (equal to DHD)
5 MPix back camera (which is lower than DHD's 8 MPix)

sofware wise it's using ICS + Sense 4.... [edit: my bad, One V got Sense 3.6]

so... there's a huge chance that officially DHD might get ICS + Sense 3.5 because it's perfectly feasible. But in the off chance that we don't, I dare bet someone would tinker to get one V's ROM into our DHD. Hopefully while keeping the camera 8Mpix (Perhaps porting the camera apps from HTC one S' which have 8 Mpix with Sense 4 as well)

XDA dev... please get it working... cross fingers...

not to mention our DHD has 50% more RAM , which makes me wonder, are we also getting sense 4.0?

actually does anyone know what type of processor the one V has? i know the speed just wondered about the architecture thats all (and if they would be using that as an excuse lol)

I don't think HTC would push sense 4 into our DHD officially, that would cripple their new One line sale. Just like when they release sense 3.5 in sensation XL, they only push sense 3 into DHD officially.

This is taken from tech radar:

"He [Jeff Gordon, global online communications manager for HTC] also told us that when Android 4.0 [ICS] lands on phones such as the HTC Sensation XE it would be with Sense 3.6, rather than the new Sense 4.0 version, as the overlay was developed in tandem with the update."

So, it's been confirmed that only the One line have Sense 4.0, and since ICS is most probably the last official update DHD will get, DHD will have sense 3.6 at most... officially of course.

Meanwhile, Sensation, XE, XL and the others might still get Sense 4.0 in the end, perhaps even 4.5, but only by the time One X/S/V been replaced from their frontline position by, I don't know... Two Y/T/W?... which comes with Jellybean and 5ense.

As fas as I know I think the only difference between Sense 3.6 & 4.0 is ability to stream HD videos over DLNA. I'm sure one of the other mods said that in one of the Evo 3D ICS threads

I might be completely wrong though, I'll see if I can find the link.

Hmm... I'm at lost... Engadget and CNET has reported that One V is going to run Sense 4, but there are some other sources that specifically says that Sense 4 can only be found in One x/S, and One V is going to have Sense 3.6 only.

The main difference of Sense 3.6 and 4 that I know of is definitely the camera, since all the new One line have sported dedicated chip for image processing (low light sensor and quick snap). Since it's hardware enhancement, this might be difficult to be ported into DHD, unlike beats sound that as we know is software enhancement.

The HTC Sensation XE update is rolling out in parts of Europe now. Android 4.0 with Sense 3.6. Mobile Raptor: Android ICS update comes to HTC Sensation XE and Samsung Galaxy S II

After that I suspect it will go to the Sensation (April?), XL (May), Desire S (June), Incredible S (July)... just kidding.

Seriously, I think it will be several months, maybe even six months before we see ICS. Hope not. The DHD has pretty much the same hardware as the Desire S and Incredible S so I guess all those might come out at the same time.

It will be 6months before the DHD gets it, 7 or 8 for branded phones I bet. Each phone has to have it all made for that phone even if they are similar to another and I bet they will sort all the rest first before they work on the DHD code.

Just got this from HTC this morning via SMS:
Check out HTC's Ice Cream Sandwich Update Status:

Few innovations have improved upon ice cream as much putting it between two cookies and making a sandwich. Which is why we all want Ice Cream Sandwich! Ok, that’s not the real reason, but we’re all excited about Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, coming to HTC.
Here’s the scoop. The following HTC devices are confirmed to get a tasty treat of Ice Cream Sandwich:

DROID Incredible 2 by HTC
HTC Amaze 4G
HTC Desire S
HTC Desire HD
HTC EVO 3D
HTC EVO Design 4G
HTC Incredible S
HTC Sensation
HTC Sensation XL
HTC Sensation 4G
HTC Sensation XE
HTC Raider
HTC Rezound
HTC Rhyme
HTC Thunderbolt
HTC Vivid

As for timing, HTC is in the early stages of rolling out Android 4.0 for the HTC Sensation and HTC Sensation XE and upgrades will be more widely available in the next few weeks. The update for the HTC Sensation 4G and HTC Sensation XL will follow. Please note, once HTC start pushing out updates it will take time for all carriers in each country to get the update. We are working closely with our carrier partners to nail down update schedules for our other smartphones and will have more to share very soon.
