Claimed HTC Sense 7 screenshots leak, reeking of Material Design

Posted: , by Daniel P.

HTC promised it will update the One (M8) and (M7), as well as the mini 2 to Lollipop within 90 days of Google throwing the source code at them, which will happen next week, so we can reasonably expect Android 5.0 on HTC flagships very early next year.

With a brand new, 64-bit Lollipop should come a brand new Material Design-inspired HTC Sense interface, right? Right, said HTC, and rolled up its sleeves. What you are seeing here, are purported screenshots from a test HTC One (M8) running a Lollipop build, with the eventual new HTC Sense 7 interface. 

Lollipop's Material Design apps and menus look cohesive, colorful, and clean. We can broadly compare their looks to the direction which LG's design team took for the LG G3's Optimus UI - flat, minimal, and very user-friendly. The Holo theme and its various incarnations are a thing of the past. 

All Google apps and interfaces have been treated to the unified look, too. It is pretty evident that HTC has thoroughly reworked its iconic Android coat of paint to match the new Material Design, and we have to say that we can't wait for more screenshots and info of any new functions to trickle down the pipeline about Sense 7.

I own a Moto X and even though I love the stock-like UI, HTC's Sense seems a lot better. More functionality and less bloatware. Samsung, take notes.

Are you kidding me? If anything material design follows in HTC's footsteps with the whites and dividers not LG.

I am pretty sure that second screenshot is of Battery Widget Reborn app and not HTC. Someone made a booboo.

Download that app on your phone and tell me the app is any different from the 2nd screenshot shown above.

Look at the slide menu. If it was under the Sertings app, there would be a back button at the top.

You're right. It even uses the same charging time that's displayed in one of the screenshots for the app.

Isn't this the same touchwiz color scheme people seem to hate? Now that it's on android L and sense people don't mind.

Samsung's color scheme is all over the place. It looks like a circus.

but something is still wrong in their UI hmm.

It was new TW which did it first...and lg followed it....
Haters can hate...but facts never change MATERIAL UI has taken inspiration from TW...

You clearly don't know how htc sense looks like. It is the closest to material design.

Bruh. Nobody likes TW. And if you get your facts straight you would know flat and minimal started with sense 5.0. if you really want to get technical....IOS7

"Nobody likes TW", but most Android users buy Samsung phones. Most people also do not root their phones or play with different launchers. Your statement doesn't seem to hold much water.
