The wait is finally over for owners of the first HTC One as Sense 6.0 has now been released for the smartphone in the UK.
The HTC Sense 6.0 user interface is designed by the Taiwanese mobile manufacturer to compliment the Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS already installed offering a more natural interaction between user and handset specifically for HTC’s own hardware. This current version of the UI is available on HTC One (M8) and HTC One in other parts of the world, but the UK has been left waiting for some time.
Now that HTC Sense 6.0 is available for HTC One handsets the upgrade should arrive over the air and make itself known via notification when it’s ready to install. It weighs in at no more than 678MB of data when installed to the phone.
The firmware brings the HTC One’s functionality closer to that of the more recently launched HTC One (M8), keeping it up running with the rest of the HTC pack and adds notable graphic changes and the arrival of tweaks to the camera app – which are said to improve its performance. There’s also a new social sharing tool called Zoe and power save modes.
If you’re desperate to get to grips with the new HTC Sense 6.0 on your own HTC One you can check it’s availability through settings on the phone under the ‘Software update’ section.
