HTC first rolled out their Sense 5.0 user interface skin a good seven months plus back, and it goes without saying that it has been long overdue that a new version should be in the pipeline already. Apparently, someone has already come up with screenshots of the upcoming HTC Sense 5.5 user interface, which is obviously part of a leak, and there were tweaks included in the new and upcoming version, too.
When HTC introduced the Blinkfeed with the Sense 5.0 user interface, folks never had much of a choice when it comes to turning off this particular feature – handy when you are already running low on battery. It does seem as though HTC Sense 5.5 will change this, as you can disable or enable the Blinkfeed feature according to your whim and fancy. Apart from that, HTC will also be introducing a couple of new topics to the Blinkfeed, where the update will deliver the choice to add your own custom topics to the feed.
Other improvements that can be found in HTC Sense 5.5 will also include an improved keyboard which features additional emoticons for you to play around with, while the camera is also touted to be better since it features new options such as dual capture and panorama+. Hopefully HTC will deliver a concrete release date for the new Sense 5.5 UI.
