The new leaks show how HTC has incorporated the cleaner, flatter look of Android 5.0 into its own Sense. The HTC Sense 7 UI is expected to have almost the same style and icons as the Sense 6 but with a little Material touch. Software keys background will change its color according to the App accent color. The quick settings may have little more greyness with some extra spacing between the icons.
After making its way through the last phase, the new updates will be available for downloading over the air. This approval should happen soon enough and we’ll keep you posted.
