HTC has confirmed that some of its Android phones will be getting Gingerbread 2.3 or Froyo 2.2 in the next coming months.
According to online reports, a HTC spokesperson said that it will be bringing the new Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) to ‘a number of devices’. Various online websites are reporting that this new OS may hit the HTC Desire, Desire HD and the Desire Z.
The company has also confirmed that HTC Legend users will be getting an update to Android 2.2. “Hi Guys, we are aware that a lot of HTC Legend users are waiting for their share of the Froyo update. Please rest assured that HTC is working on it and the update will be available soon,” said HTC Australia on its official Facebook page.
HTC also said that Froyo will be coming to the HTC Wildfire but has not given a date on when it is going to be released. All the company said was “coming soon”.
According to the Android Developers website, 43.4 percent of Android users are running on version 2.2 (Froyo) while 39.6 percent run on Android 2.1 (Eclair). However, there are still users who are using Android phones running on version 1.6 (10.6 percent) and 1.5 (6.3 percent) as various manufacturers did not push updates due to hardware issues.
