2013 HTC One expected to receive Sense 6.0 update before June

A leaked HTC document suggests that the 2013 HTC One (aka the M7) will receive the Sense 6.0 update by June.

According to a leaked HTC document, the 2013 HTC One will receive the Sense 6.0 update sometime in May or June. The other confirmed smartphones to receive the update are the dual-SIM One, One Mini and the HTC One Max.

HTC insists on calling Sense 6.0 the “Sixth Sense”, and the update is part of the HTC Advantage program. The program guarantees two years of software updates and support for its most popular handsets.

So what are the differences between the new Sense 6.0 and previous iterations? To be honest, they’re aren’t that many changes. The Sense 6.0 UI has a green interface instead of the dark blue colour that features on the Sense 5.5 UI. The icons for things like the phone and messages also remain the same. The shortcuts now sit on a clear background rather than in the bottom bar of Sense 5.5.

The app tray also looks less cluttered. The top clock and weather widget is gone in Sense 6.0, and you can also make folders and sort the apps via most recent, alphabetical or custom. The fonts have also slimmed down, the colours have been stripped from the menus, and the icons that run throughout the menus have been simplified.
