HTC Confirms Sense 5 Updates


Earlier this month we got to see HTC launch its new One flagship, the phone that will usher in Sense 5. It’s quite the departure from earlier iterations of Sense, and love it or hate it, existing HTC users have probably been wondering whether or not there were plans to make it available for current devices. HTC recently took to Facebook to address these questions, and let us know a little about how Sense 5 updates will arrive.

This is not necessarily an exhaustive list of phones that will see Sense 5, but HTC specifically says that the global versions of the One X, One X+, One S, and the HTC Butterfly will get the software. We imagine it will be up to the carriers if models like the Droid DNA see similar updates to their UIs.

HTC is quick to point out that the Sense 5 these phones get won’t be precisely the same as what we find on the HTC One, as some software features depend on One-specific hardware. For now, the company hasn’t expanded on that caveat, leaving us to guess just which bits of Sense 5 might not make the cut.
