A screenshot put online by telecominsider EVLeaks would show the interface of Sense 6.0, the interface for the successor to the HTC One. The interface differs somewhat from what HTC now has on devices.
The screenshot, posted online by Evan Blass using his Twitter account EVLeaks, shows several changes. For example, BlinkFeed, HTC’s homescreen alternative, has a white background instead of a black one. This can be seen in the edges between the various tiles, among other things. With the green spot color that is visible, the interface is reminiscent of Windows Phone.
The status bar and button bar at the bottom are partly made transparent. The icons in the bar at the bottom have the same design, but are no longer in their own section. This brings Sense a little closer to the design ideas that Google has applied in Android 4.4. In the screenshot, the location of the phone user has been scratched out.
The onscreen buttons can also be found at the bottom, which have been rumored since the beginning of January. The buttons are the three Google likes to see: Back, Home, and App Switcher. The HTC One has two capacitive buttons. HTC has never used onscreen buttons, except with its 2011 HTC Flyer tablet. It does have capacitive buttons, but HTC deactivated them with the update to Android 3.0.
The successor to the HTC One, codenamed M8, should appear sometime in the coming months. It is rumored to have a Snapdragon 800-soc, a 5″ screen with full HD resolution, a 5-megapixel front camera and two cameras on the back. When HTC will present the device is unclear.
