HTC have officially announced the first Android 4.0 update for the Sensation and Sensation XE. The 283.27 MB update is currently available to handset owners in Germany and a few Nordic countries. As expected , the Android 4.0 update is accompanied by HTC Sense 3.6 which features a few UI tweaks to accommodate new features included in the Ice Cream Sandwich update.

Currently (and unfortunately users having other HTC models) would still have to wait to get their hands on the official ICS update which is expected to come out in the upcoming months. If you’re wondering when is your turn, there’s a long list of HTC phones still waiting for the elusive upgrade to ICS.

Back in early January, HTC released information about the first wave of phones that will receive ICS, including the HTC Vivid, HTC Rezound, HTC Evo 3D, HTC Evo Design 3D, HTC Amaze 4G, and HTC Sensation series. Last February, the company updated the list  to include the HTC Rhyme, HTC Thunderbolt, HTC DROID Incredible 2, and the HTC Raider. An unconfirmed report also mentioned the possibility of HTC Flyer getting ICS so now only time will tell as to which devices would actually be getting the update and another big question would be WHEN ??
