HTC Updates Software Update Pages for Sense 6 Update on Last Gen Devices
Now that HTC’s previous generation flagship devices are all enjoying their official upgrades to Android 4.4 KitKat, many have begun to wonder when these devices would receive the latest iteration of HTC’s Sense UI. First seen on the HTC One M8, Sense 6 brings many key refinements to the Taiwanese OEM’s signature interface such as a heavily updated launcher, improved aesthetics, and much more.
You may recall that about a month ago, HTC’s Sense 6 update plans were leaked out for various last generation devices such as the HTC One M7. The leak’s proposed timetable was then officially confirmed for the M7, with the date being set for some time next month. Now, HTC has gone ahead and updated their software update status pages for US and Canada to show their current stage of progress. Included in the update pages are various versions of the HTC One (M7), as well as carrier variants of the HTC One Max and One Mini.
Currently, all devices in all regions other than the T-Mobile HTC One are in stage two (integration). This means that the bulk of the work has been done, and now carrier-specific software (i.e. bloatware)is being added. It’s unknown exactly how long integration and the subsequent certification will last, but we don’t think it’s impossible for HTC to meet its May timetable.
Head over to HTC’s Software Update Progress pages for the US and for Canada to stay updated.
