Now that the HTC One (M8) has had its grand reveal, the company is turning its focus to users of its last flagship handset, the original HTC One (M7).
Jason Mackenzie, President of HTC USA, tweeted a reminder today that the new One’s Sense 6 interface will come to the old One by the end of May. The company originally promised this at its launch event in New York City last month, and it looks like it’s still committed to deliver.

Sense 6 runs on top of Android 4.4.2 KitKat—HTC refers to it as its “sixth Sense.” It introduces an even more minimalistic design, along with themes, colored panels, and gestures referred to as Motion Launch, which lets you do things like double tap to wake up the screen. It also features to new version of BlinkFeed, the Gallery app, and Zoe camera capabilities.
The update is also planned for the HTC One Max, One Mini, and Desire 601, though there’s no official word on when those updates are happening.
