Today it looks like HTC is pushing the updates quite hard. After hearing the venerable HTC Thunderbolt will finally get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, it looks like the newer, thinner HTC EVO 4G LTE from the Now Network is getting a little update itself. While it has already received Jelly Bean it's still getting a bug fixer update today.

We're not too sure what's all in this quick little 44MB update, but the carrier themselves have confirmed it's currently rolling out to users. Mainly we've been hearing this is all about bug fixes with WiFi and the proximity sensor to name a few, as well as general performance increases.

After some digging around users are reporting in-call proximity sensor improvements, enhanced MHL quality and options with video streaming to an HDTV, Bluetooth and Wifi improvements and updates, as well as power management improvements across the board. Most updates claim better performance and battery life so we'll have to test that out ourselves.

It also appears that they've silenced the camera shutter sound when the phone is actually set to silence, something that was a petty issue for some in the past. Overall the file is quite small, and we haven't heard what all else is included at the moment. Either way the EVO 4G LTE already is enjoying 4.1 Jelly Bean, so go ahead and check for updates this evening and let us know how it goes by dropping us a comment below.
