The HTC Rezound could be getting the ICS update by the end of this month, according to an email sent by an HTC rep to a customer. This counts as confirmation as it is coming directly from HTC. The email mentioned that the update will be pushed from the end of July and will stretch up till August. This is great news for the owners of the smartphone on Big Red’s network, as we were beginning to think that the device was almost forgotten with the fuss surrounding newer flagships like the Galaxy S III.
Here is what an HTC rep mentioned in an email:
The ICS (Android 4.0) update will be released for the Rezound by the end of this month (July) with final pushes in August. Due to localization, testing, and partner approvals, updates do not roll out to all devices at the same time. For devices on a wide variety of carriers and in many countries, rollouts can take up to 45 days from the initial update to reach everyone.
The Rezound, popularly known for the Dr. Dre Beats integration also a packs a crisp 4.3-inch HD display with an astounding pixel density of 342 pixels per inch. The device is widely popular on Verizon’s network for being one of the early HD display smartphones (November). Back then, we had only seen the Galaxy Nexus which also boasted a native HD resolution display.
So if you haven’t thought of getting the Rezound until now, it might just be the right time. The device is being sold on VZW for $199.99 on a two year contract, which might be a little too steep for a 2011 smartphone, but you can find great discounts on Amazon and other online retailers. So it pays to do your research. Updates are an essential requirement for any Android user, and if the manufacturers are able to live up to their word, customer satisfaction is guaranteed.
