Although the manufacturer has yet to announce precise timings for the software update rollout, HTC has told TrustedReviews that users of the 12 month old handset can expect the new Sense UI shortly.
He added: “We’re not confirming the timing as yet. But we will look to include some of those features. Obviously it won’t include some of the hardware aspects such as the depth sensor in the camera.”
“Everything we can include, we will include.”
Aside from a reworked camera application, which cannot be fully utilised on the original HTC One, the new HTC Sense 6 UI brings a range of new features to the phone.
Included in these is a reworked Blinkfeed interface, with colour themes and a continues scroll of content added to the popular UX.
Despite the HTC One M8 hitting retailers with immediate effect, the manufacturer has confirmed that the original HTC One will remain on sale in the UK.
“Are we discontinuing it? No,” Wheeler said. “There’s great demand for it, it was the most awarded phone of last year. And while there is great demand we will continue selling it.”
