Love it or hate it, HTC’s trademark Sense UI has been the heart of HTC’s Android-powered smartphones. Mdeejay on XDA’s forum, allegedly leaked version 5 of HTC’s Sense skin. What we see is a new beautiful user interface with a focus of a very minimalist design. The icons have a more matte look and are complimented with new narrow typography.
In the past, Sense has been criticized for its laggy performance and the addition of bloatware to the Android OS.
Can this new approach to Sense, along with the debut of the new M7 flagship smartphone, be what HTC needs to lift them from their terrible financial slump? Hopefully we’ll see more next month at MWC in Barcelona.
