HTC Confirms Sense 5 Update for Global One X, One X+, One S, and Butterfly

htc one x

A curious user over on HTC’s Facebook decided to ask when his One X would receive an update to Sense 5, with HTC throwing down a good answer. According to whoever runs their FB page, the global variants of the One X, One X+, One S, and HTC Butterfly will all receive an update to Sense 5 within the “next few months.” 

Of course, you have to be somewhat hesitant when they give a broad time frame such as that. Plus, they mentioned “global.” That could mean Europeans could see it well ahead of the US, or vice versa. And let’s not forget our Ones have carriers slowing down this process as well. And if you didn’t notice already, there was no mention of Verizon’s DROID DNA.

Either way, if 2013 could be the year of update info transparency on the part of OEM’s and carriers, I think we would all be happy.

    Yeah the One X will never see this on AT&T. Considering the AT&T version is the only One X still on ICS.

      well.. dont feel too bad… the tmo one s is still on ICS too…

      that’s really sad, because the evo lte on sprint (basically the same thing) is on jelly bean. Weird.

    • electroshockked

      update just came out lol

  • TylerChappell

    When HTC gives a timeline for an update, what they really mean to say is 5 months after the timeline they have promised.

  • trwb

    Prediction: The newest trend for manufacturers and carriers is not to update your device at all. What you get out of box is what you get.

    HTC Droid DNA not included… ROFL. thanks G,.. i returned it and got a Nexus 4 :)

    Kellex do you really have to have moderation if I say a f bomb once in a while

    HTC just announce that my Thunderbolt will be rocking Sense 6+ within a few months.

    I’m pretty sure we won’t see any huge updates for the DNA, probably ever. I pretty much knew this going in, but fortunately I have a couple upgrades in August to work with, so this phone was just to hold me over, as my Nexus was starting to crap out. I sure do miss having a Nexus sometimes though.

    Fancy seeing no mention of Rezound. Never buying anything from HTC again

    • David Dudovitz

      Rezound never even got Sense 4, what would make you think it would get Sense 5?

    • Stevedub40

      Should be never buy an HTC from Verizon again. They are the ass clowns holding us up.

  • ozo012

    Wonder how the multitasking button on these phones will work on Sense 5.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      The same way they work now….why would that change?

      • michael arazan

        How many phones are they updating, just phones from the last 12-14 months? Just forget about the others, they are not “one” phones

    I hate seeing Beats audio on there. And how they lowered them selves to add such. I always laugh at people who buy $300 headphones that are worse than $100 ones

    • mx

      Yup, seeing Beats headphones pretty much screams “I have no idea what sound quality is, I just want to look cool”. Truly terrible quality for the price.

      • Diablo81588

        I find it funny that people who can’t afford studio quality headphones like to trash them and say they’re not worth it.

          I can afford them, I just won’t subject my ears to them. The headphones that I use currently are better sounding, about half the price, and are true professional quality. Sennheiser HD25-1II. Any review will tell you they are far superiour to Beats.

    • Diablo81588

      Terrible quality? The Beats Pro headphones that I have are the best sounding headphones I have ever heard. What’s better in your book? Bose? Lol… Even better, I got them for $120 bucks when I worked at Best Buy. Can’t beat that deal.

      • http://www.facebook.com/jeremy.turnley Jeremy Turnley

        I can. I bought a pair of Klipsch Image One v.2’s with about-to-expire airline miles. Great cans (better reviews than the Beats Pro), and free.

      • TylerChappell

        lol, even at $120, you got screwed.

        • Diablo81588

          I’m betting you prefer skull candy then. They’re such a good deal!

          • TylerChappell

            My $10 skullcandy’s sound as good as your Beats.

          • Diablo81588

            Keep telling yourself that.

      • mx

        Sennheiser HD251II. Bose are trash also.

      • mx

        And to be clear, I am saying that Beats are terrible FOR THE PRICE. Not that they are terrible quality. Honestly, I look at Beats as the Apple of headphones. Good quality, but more expensive for what you get compared to the competition. Not to mention that they are the epitomy of style over substance, something that Apple is constantly criticized for.

    Screw HTC and their bs promises! My one s on tmobile still doesn’t have official jellybean and it was supposed to in Oct! So the chance is this happening is roughly zero. Or it will come wi
    Hen the phone is not relevant at all anymore. No thanks. I love htc hardware but I am done until they figure out how to update faster.

  • DJyoSNOW

    I can only guess my DNA will leak the update and FUGLY

  • AlphaNoble

    From what I have seen of Sense 5, I’m not sure I would want the update…

    • ceejw

      Better icons, better launcher, better camera features, and better multitasking UI. If you disable blinkfeed everything about the update is better.

    I wonder if T-Mobile USA is going to “pass” on this update like they did with the WP7.8 update for the Lumia 710. Vegas has the odds of T-Mobile’s One S getting this update at rougly 25:1. If you like longshots, people, start placing your bets!

      Exactly why I am never buying a carrier subsidized phone for myself again. With the Nexus 4 being cheap, and now TWO decent WP8s from Nokia for under $300 (and one less that $200, supposedly), I don’t see any reason to have to deal with the BS that the carriers make you jump through. It’s fine for my wife and kids who don’t care, but for me, forget it.
