I remember when HTC first came up with their Sense user interface skin on top of the Android operating system, it worked pretty good, although after a while, Sense started to feel old, and it more or less bogged down the handset’s performance due to the processing power that was demanded. Well, the folks over at HTC do seem as though they will be introducing their latest version of Sense, which stands at Sense 5.0, for the HTC One X, One X+, One S and HTC Butterfly in the “coming months”, at least according to an answer to a question by a fan on their Facebook page.
Sense 5.0 will hit the international models of the HTC One X, One X+, One S and HTC Butterfly, although you ought to take into consideration that some of the new features which were enabled by the new HTC One hardware will be unavailable in the software updates. Of course, it remains to be seen just what these features that are unavailable will be, but chances are pretty good that the 360-degree panoramas as well as proprietary Zoe collages might be a wee bit too much to handle for the older generation of Snapdragons processors.
