HTC has confirmed on its Facebook page that it will be bringing its latest version of Sense to quite a few of its existing handsets. Sense 5 from HTC is a radically different than the previous versions of Sense with a new Blink UI for Homescreen, and system apps that follow the Holo guidelines. HTC has even done away with its iconic Weather/Clock widget, and given the whole UI a very flat feel.
HTC states that over the next few months global variants of HTC One X, One X+, One S and the Butterfly will be getting the Sense 5 update. However, software features that are available on the HTC One due to its specific hardware will not be available on these devices. It has also been confirmed that HTC will be bringing Sense 5 to the DROID DNA.
Whether the carrier variants of the above handsets like the AT&T One XL or the EVO 4G LTE will get the Sense 5 update or not, depends on their carrier’s approval.
Before you get too excited, keep in mind that HTC may reconsider its decisions down the line and may not bring Sense 5 to one or any of the devices mentioned above.
