New Ice Cream Sandwich Build For HTC Rezound Leaks

The ICS released schedule from HTC states that the Sensation, Sensation XE, Sensation XL and the Rezound should get the update by Q1 of 2012. While the company did not announce anything officially, it started rolling out the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Sensation a few days ago.

Now, the folks over at Android Police have got their hands on a new Ice Cream Sandwich firmware leak for the HTC Rezound. According to them, this is not the final leak but more of a RC firmware. Sadly, the update includes Sense 3.6 and not Sense 4.0, which might disappoint a lot of Rezound owners.

2.  CMAS support added
3. IPv6 over eHRPD supported
4. UI updated to Sense 3.6
5. Caller Name ID app added

7. New storage UI (under settings menu)
