OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA.

[OTA Captured] HTC One Mini Receives Sense 6
A little over two months ago, the HTC One M7 and several other last generation HTC devices receive their official updates to Sense 6. Naturally, this left many to wonder when the M7’s smaller sibling, the HTC One Mini, would get its update. Well folks, the time is here, and the One Mini is now receiving its update.
Today’s update comes in the form of software version 4.09.401.3, and as you would expect from a major upgrade, it comes in at a rather hefty 493.61 MB. The update brings all of the latest Sense 6 features we’ve seen in other devices such as color coded themes, personalized fonts, extreme power saving mode, a button to clear all recent apps, new camera and gallery interfaces, BlinkFeed improvements, and of course Sense 6 itself.
The update has now begun rolling out in stages in Europe. But as always, your mileage may vary with regards to when it hits your own device. Luckily, XDA Forum Member vrvr was kind enough to capture and mirror the OTA for your sideloading pleasure. To get started on your own device, simply head over to the Sense 6 mirrored firmware thread.
