When HTC release a new update to their Sense custom interface, existing handsets are generally left out for various reasons. Apparently, HTC have decided to throw caution to the wind and update last year’s flagship range to the Sense 5, the minimalist interface that ships on the HTC One.
HTC have not gone into detail about which of Sense’s new features they will be bringing to the One X (and One XL), One S and Butterfly, but considering how compelling the HTC One’s hardware features (such as the ultrapixel camera and infrared sensor) are, there doesn’t seem to be a reason for them to hold back on the software. Given how strongly HTC seem to feel about BlinkFeed, chances are that it will make the cut to the older hardware, but hopefully we’ll also see the full Sense 5 makeover and HTC’s Zoe included. HTC of course offer the caveat that the features brought down to the current lineup will depend on the hardware capabilities of the various devices, but that’s to be expected.
