A leaked updater for the HTC Sensation showed up late last month, foretelling the arrival of a proper OTA distribution. That day is finally upon us, with system software 1.35.401.1 heading out to non-carrier-branded Sensation owners in Europe.
The 27MB update isn’t anything groundbreaking, and doesn’t bring any anticipated updates like a move to Android 2.3.4 or some progress towards unlocking the smartphone’s bootloader. Instead, you’ll find this to be a general maintenance update, with a smattering of bugfixes for problems you may not have even noticed were there.
There’s no changelog yet available, but since this update leaked back in June, users have had enough time to play around with it that there’s at least some idea of what HTC managed to fix. For one thing, Sense is reportedly a whole lot smoother, which is good news since we have high expectations for the Sensation’s powerful hardware. While the UI may run faster, it doesn’t look like those speed gains translate over to app performance. It also looks like there are some new language options, and some users have noticed improved GPS lock speeds.
Let us know what other changes you notice if you get a chance to install the update.
