The HTC One (M8) will be the first device in HTC’s lineup to updated with Android 5.0 and the latest version of Sense. We know the update will be released before the end of January, but leaks gives us a taste of what the new update will actually look like.
The images below show that the main UI elements in Sense will remain the same. HTC is updating the multi-tasking view, notification shade, quick settings and lock screen notifications to mirror the new functionality that Google made available in the Lollipop update. We’re pretty sure there will be a few more UI tweaks sprinkled throughout the OS, but don’t expect any dramatic changes to the core elements of HTC Sense until HTC unveils its next flagship smartphone in 2015.
If you simply can’t wait that long and want a taste of Lollipop the way Google intended, you can always convert your HTC One (M8) to a GPe software and grab the Android 5.0 update when it drops on Friday.
