It’s been more than a few months since we heard about a possible Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for HTC DROID Incredible 2. The same goes for the HTC Thunderbolt, which has yet to receive its promised update.
Although most DROID Incredible 2 and Thunderbolt owners gave up hoping their smartphone will ever see an official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update, it appears that that there is hope after all.
Droid-Life reports HTC confirmed the software update is now in the works and that, as soon as they iron out all the issues encountered, the company would share more details.
The information comes straight from HTC, so there must be some truth in it. One of the many DROID Incredible 2 owners tired of waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich took it to Twitter and asked if the company will still keep its promise and deliver the update.
Surprisingly, HTC was quick to reply and said its engineers are currently working on the update but they’ve been met with some connectivity issues, which is the only reason they couldn’t finish it earlier.
“We’re working on connectivity issues with the software. We’re working on a resolution and we’ll share information as we’re able,” said HTC on its Twitter account.
HTC DROID Incredible is more than a year old. The phone was launched at Verizon Wireless in April 2011 with Android 2.2 Froyo out of the box.
The smartphone received an upgrade to Android 2.3 Gingerbread and HTC said it would offer an Ice Cream Sandwich update as well.
Since we haven’t heard anything about the status of the update we thought HTC changed its mind, but it looks like there’s a high chance the DROID Incredible 2 will receive an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
