[LEAKED] HTC Sense 6.0 Showing New UI And Motion Gesture Controls

With roughly one week until HTC formally unwraps its next-gen the new HTC One, more details on the smartphone have leaked. This time, instead of dealing with hardware details, the leak du jour focuses on the software experience. More specifically, we're looking at the Sense 6.0 custom interface.

A video which surfaced today shows a redesigned interface featuring a stripped-down approach, with "flat" icons and a new design language. What's more, Sense 6.0 could include motion gesture controls for launching apps, as well as other shortcut functions. Assuming the video is correct, it's unclear whether the Sense experience in this unofficial clip is final, or if HTC is still tweaking the software.

The video has no accompanying audio, but does show you screen by screen all the phone’s key features, such as: a 5-inch full HD display, a quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon processor, two rear cameras, a dual-LED flash and upgraded BoomSound speakers.
HTC is holding a press conference March 25 to officially unveil the phone, but you can get your first glimpse here.

Leaked HTC M8 Photos Show The Smartphone In All Its Glory

Leaked Photos Finally Reveal The Gorgeous Front Of Upcoming HTC M8

The anticipated HTC M8 appears again and this time we get to see its face from another fresh round of leaked shots.

If you’re expecting an all new design, you could be disappointed as HTC has pretty much retained a lot of design similarities of its current HTC One. The notable difference is the departure of capacitive home and back buttons as the M8 will be using on-screen buttons instead.

The 2 leaked pics from a Russian website also reveals a collapsible on-screen buttons which can be either shown or hidden away when not required, probably through swiping from the edge. The awesome Boom Sound front facing stereo speakers appears to be retained as well with the similar looking grill design.

In terms of naming, the new HTC M8 is speculated to be called HTC One 2 or HTC One+. To the naked eye, the new model may look like an incremental upgrade like the HTC One X to the One X+.

In reality, the M8 is more than just a model refresh as it will feature a larger 5″ display that’s possibly doing QHD (2560×1440) and runs on a current Snapdragon 800 processor.
