A user asked on Facebook if an update is planned for its One X on Sense 5 and a few minutes later, the Taiwanese company has already responded HTC. Consequently were updates to the global version of the One X, One X +, One S and Butterfly in the works and will be rolled out in the coming months. For devices with provider branding the update, however, may be delayed because it must be approved by the mobile operators.

But HTC is also to understand that due to hardware limitations, not all functions for the older models will be available. Nevertheless, this is good news for all owners of the models listed above and it's nice to see that HTC is actively product maintenance.

On request from the HTC support were told that the controversial Nachrichen service Blink feed that is displayed with the default settings as home screen and also can not be disabled. will not be part of the sense 5 update for older devices. This feature is exclusive to the HTC One reserved. That should certainly many users are happy, keep the flashing feed for superfluous. How do you see it?
