HTC's Sense 6 UI, which debuted in the recently launched smartphone the HTC One (M8), has started rolling out to the original HTC One, or One M7, as reported by users in India. While the update is said to be currently available for the single-SIM variant only, the dual-SIM variant's update might not be far behind.
The update is available over-the-air and is sized at 670MB. Users can simply navigate through their HTC One's Settings > About Phone > Software Update option to keep a check. It's worth noting that HTC One users who are using the Android KitKat OS will be the only ones who will experience the Sense 6 UI. To recall, HTC rolled out the Android 4.4 KitKat OS update for its One M7 handset back in February.
The HTC Sense 6 UI comes with a number of new features, and the update notification screenshot courtesy a user (via GSMArena) lists a few, such as different colours for HTC apps for user's ease; a new Extreme Power Saving mode; improved BlinkFeed interface, continuous scrolling, and enhanced sidebars; customisable fonts; new and simple camera interface; redesigned gallery to find images quickly; modern app tray with minimalistic design; support for POI location in map view, and a new UI for HTC Sense TV.
This update goes in line with what we reported in April when HTC announced the roll-out of Sense 6 UI to HTC One users. The announcement was made on Twitter by the HTC America president Jason Mackenzie.
Last week it was reported that HTC's latest flagship smartphone, the One (M8), is receiving a firmware update with multiple stability fixes. It has been noted that the firmware update for HTC One (M8) is 70MB in size and is available OTA (over-the-air).
The reported firmware update for the HTC One (M8) (Review | Pictures) brings improvements to system radio stability, camera app stability; video highlight stability, and FM radio app stability, apart from a weather app barometer update.
