HTC Sensation XE Android Ice Cream Sandwich update starts on Three

Three has started pushing out Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) to the HTC Sensation XE, becoming the first UK carrier to bring the latest version of Google's operating system to HTC’s Beats by Dre audio-branded smartie.

Three confirmed it is rolling out the OS bump to Android 4.0 over the air today via its official Twitter account.

It’s not yet clear which features the update adds to the handset. But at the very least we’d expect to see a revamped, faster browser, some performance enhancements and the Face Unlock security feature.

Instructions for downloading the update, including newbie tips such as using WiFi to avoid eating into your 3G data allowance and ensuring you start with a fully juiced-up battery, are available on Three’s site.

The quick-off-the-mark Android 4.0 rollout to the Sensation XE on Three comes after the carrier beat UK rivals to the punch last week by pushing out ICS for the Samsung Galaxy S2 just days after Sammy started to make it available for unlocked phones.
