Leaked HTC Sense 6 Update Schedule for Current Gen Devices

Just one week ago, we took a look at a leaked video that gave viewers a quick walk-through of what was purported to be HTC’s yet to be released Sense 6. While the veracity of the leaked video is still unknown, we do know that Sense 6 is on the horizon. It’s only a matter of time before it reaches consumer devices—well, if the company doesn’t go under before then due to poor sales and perplexing legal practices.

So naturally, the question on everyone’s mind is when and if their current generation HTC devices will receive the HTC Sense 6 goods. Well, thanks to leaked documents courtesy of XDA Recognized Contributor and leaker extraordinaire LlabTooFer, we now have a better idea.

HTC One owners will be glad to know that they’re first in line for the Sense 6 update, as HTC appears to have tentative plans to release the update some time between May and June. One Mini, One Max, and Butterfly S owners should also find comfort in knowing that they’re scheduled to receive the update one month later, some time between June and July.

Unfortunately, this means that other devices such as the original Butterfly, One X, One X+, One S, One V, One SV, Desire 601, Evo 4G LTE, and Desire 700 are probably going to be left in the cold—but we already expected as much. Another interesting tidbit that can be gleamed from the leaked documentation is that Sense 6 is also currently running atop Android 4.4.2—just like Sense 5.5 does at present. However, it’s not uncommon for different versions of Sense to run atop the same Android version.

What are your thoughts on HTC’s update schedule? Are you still bitter about the lack of updates for the One X and X+? Let us know in the comments below!

Device Review: No.1 X1 Rugged Smartphone

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone.

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
