Just a few hours ago Sprint offered up a little information for the users of the last two EVO devices on their network. They have let everyone know that the HTC EVO Design 4G and HTC EVO 3D will be getting their taste of Ice Cream Sandwich by early August. That should mean it will be rolling out in a n OTA the first week. Assuming things stay on track and no unusual issues arise. The update will bring in a lot of newness to your current device.

Android 4.0 adds numerous enhancements and new features, including:

  • A refined, evolved user interface that is simple, beautiful and useful
  • Face Unlock: use state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to unlock your phone with a smile
  • Redesigned camera app which introduces Scenes like Panorama, and Effects such as Vignette, Depth of Field, Vintage and Posterize
  • Web browser now lets you sync Google Chrome™ bookmarks, request full desktop versions of sites, see your open tabs in a new layout
  • People: browse friends, family and coworkers, see their photos in high-resolution and check their latest status updates from Google+
  • Improved keyboard with incredibly accurate typing, an inline spell checker and improved copy and paste support
  • Redesigned Gmail™ app that now lets you swipe between conversations to catch up quickly and search for emails even without a data connection
  • Google+ integration that lets you hangout and video chat with up to 10 friends using your front-facing camera

The update should make your device feel and look like a whole new phone. We will keep our eyes and ears peeled for when Sprint starts to release the updates and keep you in know.
