The folks HTC have been on a roll lately regarding updates for older devices. We’ve been seeing multiple HTC smartphones get updates, and today can confirm a few over on Verizon Wireless will soon see OTA updates too. Both the HTC Rezound and the DROID Incredible 2 have what HTC calls a “device enhancement” software improvement that should be arriving soon.

According to Droid-Life, Verizon posted up the details and changelog information for both smartphones this weekend. Which means the updates will probably land before the end of the week. Usually Verizon posts update details on their support pages full of information, but these only list “HTC Device Enhancement” for what’s new. So we don’t have any details really.

While Rezound owners are still patiently awaiting an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and the Incredible 2 probably won’t see any future OS updates, we’d still like to know what’s new here. The Incredible 2 update is quite large coming in at over 32MB in size, and will most likely have a few bug fixes and security updates. On the other hand the Rezound update is minimal and probably only security patches of some sort.


All the details can be found here for the Rezound, and here for the Incredible 2. These don’t look to be any more than a few bugs and improvements and we don’t anticipate any new features worth mentioning. Either way be on the lookout for an update and drop us a comment when it shows up. Enjoy!

    Only “enhancement” I can find is that I can no longer add new cities to my World Clock on my dinc2. Anyone else have this problem?

    • My Rezound just updated itself and I’m not sure either what has changed. I am able to add new cities to my world clocks. Would still love to hear all the differences since the updates though from other people please.

    Hmmm, my DINC2 update was 4.55MB and not the 32 or more. My version number is also slightly different. 6.04.605.07-6.01.605.

    I cannot add cities to the world clock either and the weather is gone from the desk clock mode. So I wonder if they just removed some phone features to make the phone run smoother, and maybe some of the other “enhancements” are tests for or something to set up for ICS. Though I will most likely be upgraded before they push that.

      Actually, I just realized they push two different software numbers. In the actual phone information screen my version number is the given number from the Verizon announcement….

    The HTC Device Enhancements might just be a cover up name for this….
