HTC appear to still be working on optimizing their Sense user interface and a good example of that is the (unofficial) information, which appeared online, giving us more details on the next edition of the software – the so-called Sense 4.1. We should point out, that this number has nothing to do with the latest Android version – 4.1, but instead it’s just supposed to hint at the size of the changes, which have taken place in it – they won’t be very big ones, though, surely, quite important.
According to the information, switching between the different homescreens has been made a lot more smooth, the animated wallpapers are now working better and the overall performance of the devices has gone up – quite impressive for a x.1 update. Other changes include a new button for switching between front- and rear-facing cameras, an additional button for browsing through the opened tabs in the web browser and the option to replace the virtual menu button with a long press of the multitasking button. If you’re eager to try out the new Sense 4.1, all you’re going to need is a Tegra 3 version of the One X, which must be running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich in combination with version 2.2 of the Maximus firmware. For those who are a bit more patient – the official release of Sense 4.1 is going to arrive quite soon. B. A.
