While HTC One owners in North America have been the first to receive the latest Android 4.3 and Sense update, a new leak suggest that HTC is nearly ready to unveil Sense 5.5. The look and feel of Sense 5.5 isn’t much different than what HTC One owners currently enjoy, but there are subtle tweaks and new features that will certainly improve the user experience. mike1986, the source of the leak, also claims that Sense 5.5 comes with improved performance and smoothness while fixing a lot of bugs that were present in previous builds of Sense.
With the HTC One max expected to launch by mid-October, it’s not too much of a stretch to assume that the phone will be the first to run Sense 5.5. The HTC One will probably receive a Sense 5.5 update in the future, but we hope HTC waits until it can bake in the changes with Android 4.4

- “Dual capture” and “Panorama+” camera mode options.
- Tweaked recent apps card view.
- Updated keyboard with hundreds of new emoticons.

- BlinkFeed on/off toggle.
- New HTC BlinkFeed categories with custom topics tab.
