[OFFICIAL] HTC Sensation Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Update Will Not Include Sense 4.0

With the HTC Sensation being one of the star HTC Android smartphones of 2011, the latest announcement from HTC will no doubt be upsetting to many.

According to the folks over at AndroidPit, “HTC has confirmed that the HTC Sensation will NOT receive an update to Sense 4.0, the newest version of Sense for Ice Cream Sandwich, but that they will receive a lite version with some specific elements from 4.0.”

HTC Sensation Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update not “full”

The HTC Sensation will get Sense 3.6 when it gets the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update, unlike the HTC One which gets the “full” Android Ice Cream Sandwich experience with HTC Sense 4.0.

Given that HTC recently admitted that their Sense UI had somewhat gotten bloated and that they hoped to strip it down in 2012, it comes as no surprise that HTC Sense may pose as a problem for the HTC Sensation getting the Android 4.0 ICS update.
