HTC One (M8) and other HTC handsets released this year could get Sense 7 UI as soon as May 2015
As previously reported, HTC’s One (M8) and One (M7) should be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop in early January, though the update won’t bring a new version of Sense. Thus, both smartphones will still have Sense 6 UI on board. However, Sense 7 is expected to be available later in 2015 - at least for the One (M8) and other HTC handsets introduced this year.

According to ROM developer LlabTooFeR - who recently showed us what Lollipop and Sense 6 look like on the One (M8) - Sense 7 UI should first ship with the HTC Hima (aka One M9), which could be released in March. After that, between May and July 2015, Sense 7 should become available to HTC’s 2014 line-up of handsets - almost certainly not including entry-level models (like the Desire 310).

At the moment, it’s unclear if devices from 2013 (including the One M7) will receive the new version of the UI. We also don’t know exactly what Sense 7 will bring, but we do expect to see major design changes to complement Android Lollipop. What do you expect from Sense 7?

Lmao the first flagship phone apart from the almost pure Moto X last year to get kitkat was the HTC One.

I have bought 5 phones in the last 2 years: Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Nexus 5, LG E 970 and Xperia Z3C but I haven't been happy with any of them. If the HTC One display is centered, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

If the leaked photos of the Lollipop update with sense 6 are true I will be very disappointed if they don't adopt Google Material Design...

shouldn't it be "as late as May 2015"?
