Last year, Sprint launched the HTC’s first 3D smartphone, the HTC EVO 3D. This handset allows you to record 2D videos in full HD (1080p) and 3D videos in HD (720p), thanks to its 5 megapixel dual cameras. HTC EVO 3D was shipped with the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) Operating System. HTC has already started rolling out the much-awaited Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update for the international variant. However, the HTC EVO 3D owners on Sprint were left behind.
Sprint finally announced the Android 4.0 update for the HTC EVO 3D smartphone. This update will bring the usual ICS goodies along with numerous enhancements and new features. Sprint has also confirmed the Android 4.0 update for the HTC EVO Design 4G smartphone. If you own one of these devices, then check out the complete changelog below.

HTC EVO 3D and EVO Design 4G owners will get this update starting from early-August. This update will be available via OTA (Over-The-Air).

Even though, HTC EVO 3D and EVO Design 4G won’t get the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, the owners of these handset will at least have something better than nothing.
