    The new HTC One M8 introduced us to Sense 6, and new owners of the smartphone are already getting a chance to enjoy the software. What about those who have older HTC, devices, though? When will they get their own shot? Right before the M8 debuted, we heard a rumor attempting to outline HTC's strategy for updating current phones with Sense 6. According to that document, the original One M7 might see its update land in either May or June. Then at the One M8 launch itself, HTC confirmed plans for these Sense 6 updates, but without nailing down a precise timetable. Well, today we've finally ...

    HTC BlinkFeed. From vocal revulsion to grudging acceptance to quiet praise, the community’s feelings about HTC’s custom news and social stream have come quite a ways in the year since it was introduced. Now, after a full point upgrade and many enhancements, BlinkFeed on Sense 6 stands ready to help you waste some time – and we're here to show you how to help it help you. If you’re new to an HTC smartphone and apathetic to the tech scene, your first question will probably be: what is BlinkFeed? The easiest answer is that it's analogous the Facebook News Feed or the familiar ...

    Tomorrow, we're looking forward to Sense 6.0 debuting on the all new HTC One; for something that's not yet official, that news is all but certain. OK, but what does Sense 6.0's arrival mean for all the other HTC hardware? What existing devices might be getting Sense 6.0 by means of future updates – and then, when might we hope to see those updates arrive? Well, apparently HTC's current problem with leaks extends far beyond the new One itself, and the latest identifies its plans for bringing Sense 6.0 to last year's One, One Max, and One Mini. The first device to get a Sense 6.0 update ...

    Home stretch, here we come; with just one week and one day to go until HTC launches its all new One, excitement for the Android handset runs high. Even if we were largely in the dark, we'd still eagerly be awaiting the HTC flagship's debut, but the leaks we've seen so far (and man, there have been a LOT of them) have only served whet our appetites all the more. Today we start the week off with a pair of videos, checking out both the latest official teaser from HTC, as well as a hands-on clip detailing the look and feel of Sense 6.0. The team from the last couple HTC “Technical ...

    It's no surprise to learn that a smartphone company doesn't particularly like to see its employees leaking information on unreleased products, but rarely do we talk about any of these insiders leaking info with the express intent of profiting from it. In Taiwan, however, that's very much the saga that's playing out, as the case against ex-VP of design Thomas Chien proceeds. This all started a few months back, when Chien and a couple other HTC designers were arrested on charges of stealing trade secrets. The investigation has since claimed that Chien and his conspirators were planning to ...

    What are we looking at for HTC's next flagship? We've heard a bit about rumored specs, and while components like a Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, and 1080p display sound totally decent, would they be enough to really make the phone stand out – especially if HTC returns with another four-megapixel UltraPixel camera? Perhaps HTC intends to differentiate itself with software, and one prime way to do so could be introducing a new feature-rich version of its Sense UI. We've already heard one tipster claim that HTC intends to launch Sense 6 alongside the M8 (or however it ultimately ends up being ...

    HTC Sense version 6 will be running on top of Android on the upcoming M8 phone, according to a recent report. Sense is already at version 5.5 on certain HTC One devices that were upgraded to Android 4.3; while 5.5 looks the same as 5, it is yet unknown whether Sense 6 will continue the minimalistic look or maybe it will be a complete overhaul. As far as the HTC M8 is concerned, it is expected to be the successor of the One next year. We've first heard about the phone back in July, and there's still a long way until an official announcement, but given the number of leaks we've recently seen ...
