HTC Sensation 4G ICS Update Coming “Very Soon”, Says T-Mobile

With Ice Cream Sandwich already available for international versions of the HTC Sensation, T-Mobile users have been rightly curious as to when their own Sensation 4Gs might be seeing a similar release. Delays getting the update out had started taking a nasty turn last month, with some users accusing T-Mobile of intentionally withholding the update to drive sales of new ICS models. The carrier firmly rejected that claim, and pointed to the need for adequate testing before the update could be released. It looks like that day may end up being quite soon, with T-Mobile announcing today that it’s finished testing the Sensation 4G’s ICS update.

According to the carrier, the smartphone’s ICS update should “be available very soon”. Sadly, today’s news doesn’t go into anything more specific than that, but if testing really is totally completed, an OTA release within the course of week doesn’t sound too unreasonable.

A leaked roadmap from late last week suggested that T-Mobile was planning the Sensation 4G’s ICS update for June 16, when it would release the code alongside the ICS update for the Amaze 4G. It’s pretty hard to marry the idea of waiting another six weeks with the news that testing on the update is already done, so we’re inclined to think the information conveyed in that leak may have been off.
