HTC is still a month or two away from rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the HTC One, but the first screenshots of how it will be integrating Sense with the latest version of Android have already made its way to the Internet.
The leaked screenshots come courtesy of @LlabTooFeR, who is known for his previous HTC related leaks. The screenshots show off the Sense lockscreen along with the status bar, quick settings and the new Recents UI on Lollipop.

The screenshots suggest that HTC is not giving its Sense UI a major makeover with Lollipop. Instead, it is simply integrating the current visual look of Sense with Lollipop while retaining all the new features introduced by the latter. It looks like the company is saving the big Material Design overhaul of its Sense UI for its next flagship device. It is also very likely that these screenshots are from an early test firmware of Sense with Lollipop, and things might change considerably by the time the final build is rolled out.
While the source of this leak did not provide any release date, these screenshots do confirm that HTC is working hard and is very likely to fulfill its promise of updating the HTC One to Lollipop within 90 days from the source being released by Google.
