HTC has started rolling out the Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich update for Incredible S owners in quite a few regions of the world. Incredible S owners should consider themselves lucky that their phone has got the official Ice Cream Sandwich update before a dual-core phone from HTC, the EVO 3D.
While the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Incredible S will bring with it quite a lot of new features and enhancements, what it will not bring is all the visual goodness that Google had introduced. Instead, HTC has loaded the update for the S with Sense 3.6 that makes sure users will not get a taste of the UI changes in ICS.
The official update is rolling out in certain regions of Europe via OTA. The update will take some time to show up for the branded or carrier-locked variants of the Incredible S, including the Verizon’s Droid Incredible 2.
HTC has not announced anything officially whether the Incredible S will get the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update or not. Considering how small the Android 4.1 update is and the Incredible S hardware, it should in a perfect world get the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update.
