Android 5.0 Lollipop is almost ready to launch on HTC’s Google Play edition devices, but what about the rest of our HTC smartphones? We’ve already seen a few alleged screenshots of Sense 7.0 running the latest version of Android, but a new leak suggests the phone-maker could have plans to bring a few Lollipop features to the current version of its Sense software as well.
The news comes from Twitter tipster @LlabTooFeR, who always seems to know what’s going on behind the scenes at HTC. Based on these screenshots it looks like Sense 6.0 may soon get a total Material Design makeover. One image reveals HTC adding Lollipop-style interactive notifications to its lockscreen. Another shows Android’s redesigned recent apps interface, which should be a huge improvement over HTC’s current multi-tasking grid layout.
Back in October, HTC said its Sense-powered smartphones should make the jump to Android 5.0 Lollipop starting early next year, and we hope it meets its deadline.
