HTC's Sense 7 UI seemingly has an Avatar Maker feature

HTC's Sense 7 UI seemingly has an Avatar Maker feature
Just like it did in the first quarters of 2014 and 2013, HTC this quarter should announce a new flagship smartphone alongside a new version of its Sense UI. While the final name of the upcoming smartphone isn’t known yet (it won’t be One M9, and neither HTC Hima - since this is just a codename), the new version of Sense will most likely be Sense 7.

Both the Hima and Sense 7 are expected to be unveiled in March. Until then, it seems that we can take a peek at one of the new features that Sense 7 will bring: Avatar Maker. As its name suggests, this will allow users to create personalized avatars. It doesn’t appear to be a very important feature, but at least it’s something new. @upleaks posted two screenshots that reportedly show Sense 7’s Avatar Maker, though without providing any details about it.

The screenshots have 1080 x 1780 pixels, but that’s because the space used by the software navigation keys isn’t included (so the actual pixel resolution of the device the screenshots were taken on must be 1080 x 1920).

We already reported that the HTC Hima would feature a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, in addition to a Snapdragon 810 processor, 3 GB of RAM, a 20 MP rear camera, and a 2840 mAh battery.

HTC believes that its 2015 portfolio of products will be its best ever, and we're obviously expecting Sense 7 and the HTC Hima to play an important role in it.

That's weird but OK. I just want some extra innovative multitasking features. Like, for the card-like windows, it should be allowed to drag and drop up to four windows to be used simultaneously or something, and a very intuitive way for switching between these windows. I know it'd be resource hungry but eh... can't shoot me down for wishful thinking. LOL.

Bring it to the M8 with WP! Even though it may be gimmicky, I LOVE GIMMICKS. And customizing. Especially avatars, as for games, it is a selling point for me!

Did you just disrespect the Note 4 like that? How dare you.

I meant WP. It is literally the only one. At least on AT&T the people have choices.

Why don't they just build off of Androidify?

Guess it would be interesting if this was some kind of virtual assistant avatar maker. Otherwise I'm not interested in the feature.

Sense 6 was pretty sharp. This looks very much like lollipop and very pastel and light. HTC fans better hope they can pull off more than sense 6 that looks just like lolipop or they are toast.

I wish they would go back to the way they made sense 3 and 4. 5 and 6 are flat and boring

sense is the most visually pleasing android OEM skin. It has the looks of Windows phone to a degree.
