Posted July 18, 2014 at 06:30 am by Will Verduzco
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, Bli. . .

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 a. . . READ ON »

Earlier today, we talked about how the Sony Xperia M was finally receiving its taste of the latest version of Jelly Bean, Android 4.3. While we lamented the fact that the device was just now being updated to a version of Android that is nearly a year old, we were happy to at least see the device receiving some OEM lovin’ even though it’s hardly the latest and/or greatest in Sony’s portfolio.
HTC, on the other hand, seems to be a bit better about releasing expedient updates for its product line. In fact, when they failed to meet their rather strict (and self-imposed) 3 month timetable, they issued a public apology and proceeded to quickly rectify the situation.

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.

Around the time that Android 4.4 KitKat was released near the tail end of last year, many manufacturers made claims regarding planned update timing for their flagship models. HTC made no exception with its highly acclaimed flagship HTC One, when the company promised to deliver updates to consumer devices within 90 days. Accordingly, we saw the update roll out to the developer and unlocked devices, as well as to the Google Play edition some time ago. Now, the update has also begun making its way to various HTC One devices in Europe.
Today’s OTA is software version 4.19.401.8, and it comes in at a rather trim 308.24 MB. In addition to bumping up the Android version to 4.4.2, it also brings security enhanc. . . READ ON »

You might remember that just under two months ago, the flagship HTC One received an update to Android 4.3 with Sense 5.5, which allowed users to disable BlinkFeed once and for all. Well, a very similar update has now started rolling out to the One’s little brother, the HTC One Mini, and it packs many nice additions.
As expected, this update brings many improvements along with the increased Android version. For starters, the company’s trademark custom skin, HTC Sense, has been updated to version 5.5, which was originally seen on the gargantuan HTC One Max. This brings multitasking UI improvements, an updated interface to its video highlights feature, improvements to the media player, and mo. . . READ ON »
