Sense 6 Heading to Verizon HTC One M7 This Week, AT&T and Sprint Models Undergoing Carrier Certification

Earlier this month, the Developer and Unlocked variants of the popular HTC One M7 received their official updates to Sense 6. Not long after, T-Mobile updated its variant to Sense 6 as well. Both of the aforementioned updates brought features that were previously exclusive to the M8 over to HTC’s last year flagship. This included features such as Extreme Power Savings mode, an updated UI, a few updated first party apps, and a refreshed BlinkFeed interface.

Now, this same update is about to make its way to the Verizon HTC One M7. While there’s no official statement from Verizon just yet, HTC has now updated its update support page to state that the update is complete. This means that it has already received carrier certification and its release can be expected imminently. So when will this update hit consumer devices? According to HTC USA Product Manager Leigh Momii, it will happen this week.

The good news doesn’t end with the Verizon variant, however. as the updates for the AT&T and Sprint variants are now undergoing carrier certification. Naturally, these updates will take a bit longer, but since the development and integration work has been already done and they are just waiting for carrier approval, we can’t imagine that it’ll be too much longer.

Verizon HTC One users looking to get in on the update discussion should head over to this thread.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
