HTC sales increase for One and Butterfly, Butterfly to receive Sense 5.0 update


In a recent piece on Focus Taiwan, Jack Tong, president of HTC North Asia, said HTC will double production for its recent flagship, the HTC One. Tong also mentioned the company’s older device, the HTC Butterfly, has seen sales rise since the company lowered the price of the device in Asian markets. To help sales further, the Butterfly will soon receive an update to Sense 5.0, as featured on the aforementioned HTC One. The update will include the Sense 5.0 user interface, the BlinkFeed home screen feed and improvements to the camera, among other additions. 

While the Butterfly may not be the hottest phone around right now, it did have many early adopters thanks to a good combination of hardware and the first commercially available smartphone with a 1080p display. No official date has been announced but its safe to assume that Butterfly users will get a taste of Sense 5.0 within the month.
