The HTC One X+ is receiving Android 4.2.2 as we post. This will be the last update the device will receive, as we reported earlier. This update includes a Sense 5.0 user interface overhall, which has most of the features from the HTC One besides camera features and BoomSound. This is probably going to be a slow rollout, but you can try manually updating.

Here’s the changelog:

  • Android Version: 4.2.2
  • HTC Sense: 5.0
  • NFC Fixes
  • AT&T Address Book Fixes

New HTC One update brings Android 4.2.2 along with additional goodies… but still keeps Sense 5.0 in the process

by Roy Alugbue on
tagged , , ,



Those of you early adopters of the HTC One smartphone are certainly in for a special treat as a new update is being pushed to the masses as we speak. This latest update doesn’t bring an unmolested version of Android, but will bring the latest Android version to One owners… well for the time being at least. Users of the smartphone can expect to see Android 4.2.2 which includes the Quick Settings notification bar among other things, while keeping the Sense version at 5.0. Additional cool changes to the software include a new battery level indicator, as well as some minor changes to the app drawer and hopefully— some welcome performance improvements.

No word yet on how long it’ll take for the latest update to hit the general public, but hopefully it will be a relatively quick and smooth process.

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.  » Read the rest

HTC One X rumored to get Sense 5.0 in new incoming update, brings Zoe and Blinkfeed along for the ride

Just because the HTC One X is so last year doesn’t mean it’s not going to be treated to some welcome updates, possibly in the near-future. According famed developer LlabTooFeR, HTC is currently working on an extensive update that should not only bring Android 4.2.2, but will update the Sense UI software to version 5.0. Additionally, the new Sense UI update will bring the premium goodies that are Zoe and Blinkfeed as well, which brings enhanced camera capabilities and a brand-spanking new social feed to the device.

Of course everything needs to be confirmed by HTC above anything else, but here’s hoping we see something soon… very soon.

HTC Flip Clock to be included in Sense 5.0 after all

by Robert Nazarian on
tagged ,

We have seen a number of screen shots from the upcoming Sense 5.0 UI, but one thing that was absent in all of them was the HTC classic flip clock. All the images up until now showed a more minimalist version (pictured below). The assumption was that HTC was going to get away from it for the first time in many years, but lovers of the iconic flip clock can rejoice because it looks like it will be back again. HTCSource just received the image above to solidify it.

More pictures of the HTC M7 with Sense 5.0 surface

As far as pre-announcement rumors, I think it’s safe to say that last year’s One X didn’t get quite the attention that this year’s “M7″ is getting. For whatever reason, it seems as though leaks for the upcoming HTC “M7″ are coming in on a daily basis. Could it be that HTC is trying to create a little hype? Yesterday we saw a render that was as close to the real thing as possible, but today we have real pictures of what looks like the final phone. It really doesn’t look much different than the render we saw yesterday, but since it’s a real phone in hand, it adds credibility. There’s also a bonus in that we have more images of Sense 5.0.

European users starting to see Android 4.3 and HTC Sense 5.5 updates for HTC One

by Jeff Causey on

HTC’s rollout of Android 4.3 for their HTC One customers continues to spread around the globe with users in some European countries now reporting they are being notified to grab the OTA update. Unlike users on some carriers in the U.S., like those on T-Mobile that started to see the update this week, the update rolling out in Europe includes HTC’s Sense 5.5 interface, an upgrade from Sense 5.0. That change will bring users some new features for BlinkFeed and more search support for Google+ and RSS feeds, including the ability to turn off BlinkFeed.

Thus far the update appears to have hit some Eastern European markets and Russia according to @LlabTooFeR and reports indicate some Nordic countries are receiving the update. Meanwhile, HTC UK is estimating three to five more weeks before British customers receive the new update.

Leaked publication suggests Android 4.3 and 5.0 updates to come to recent Samsung flagships

by Harrison Kaminsky on
tagged , , , , , ,


Google has yet to even officially announce the upcoming release of Android 4.3, and we’re already receiving rumors that Samsung is working on updates to the newest version of the OS for some of its top devices, including the Galaxy S 3 and Galaxy Note 2, which will supposedly skip the Android 4.2.2 update and jump straight to 4.3.

Since Google is planning on releasing the new version in the near future, it makes sense for Samsung to skip right over 4.2.2, especially because of the minor OS changes in the update.

The leaked publication also suggests that the Galaxy S 4, Galaxy S 3, Galaxy Note 3, and Galaxy Note 2, will all be upgradable to the next major version of Android, most likely 5.0 Key Lime Pie.

More information will obviously come in the next few weeks and months about this, so we’ll be sure to keep you updated as the news comes in.

New build of Sense 5.1 surfaces for HTC Butterfly smartphone, tries to give a little taste of Android 4.2.2 in the process

by Roy Alugbue on
tagged , , ,



Sure HTC has been kicking some keister with some of its recently released flagships but well— they tend to feature not-so-current Jelly Bean builds loaded up, despite the sleek and appealing Sense 5.0 running the show. Fortunately it appears that HTC is working behind the scenes to change that notion. A leaked video recently surfaced which showcases the latest iteration of HTC’s unique skin— Sense 5.1 for the HTC Butterfly smartphone. Among the interesting things among the new build is a slightly revamped appearance and an attractive and familiar notification shade— giving the clear sign that Sense 5.1 will feature Android 4.2.2. Unfortunately there is no other aspect of this leaked build to see for now, so there’s no word on if there will be items like a new lock screen or updated icons, etc.

Here’s hoping we see more of this intriguing new update (and hopefully a port or two on American devices). You can find the video for yourself at the source links below. .
