HTC Amaze 4G for Telus gets Ice Cream Sandwich

Telus customers with the HTC Amaze 4G will now be able to get their tongue wet with a nice helping of Ice Cream Sandwich. This’ll bring you up to the latest version of Android 4.0, but you’ll only be getting Sense 4.0 as this is not being considered a One phone. This update is a hefty one at 322MB so you’ll definitely want to be on WiFi before you get started. Also be sure that you have at least 30% of battery life to make sure things go smoothly. Once you’ve done all that, hit Menu > Settings > About Phone > System Software Updates > Check Now to get started. [via MobileSyrup]

    Stupid question, maybe, but why do you say the Amaze will “only be getting Sense 4.0″? Is it not getting Android 4.0? Just a little confused.

    I’m pretty sure the author meant sense 3.6. The Amaze 4G for T-Mobile only got sense 3.6 and the screens even show sense 3.6.

    Htc just decided to only include sense 4.0 with their newer phone models. The author did in fact make a mistake as the amaze is only getting sense 3.6. The amaze is perfectly capable of getting sense 4.0 as the specs for the one x are the same for the amaze except for screen size and resolution.

      No, the specs are not the same at all.
      Screen resolution/size are different.
      Camera technology is different.
      Processor is different.

    Ah, so the Amaze is getting Sense 3.6. But is it getting ICS. I would assume not, if it’s not updating to Sense 4.0.
