HTC Butterfly to receive Sense 5 update by the end of May
It looks like the HTC Butterfly will be the first device in HTC’s lineup to be updated to HTC sense 5.0. According to Focus Taiwan, the new software update for the HTC Butterfly will give the device quite a few of the features which are currently unique to the HTC One. BlinkFeed and a camera slideshow function (we’re assuming they are referring to Video Highlights) have made the cut, but we’re not exactly sure if the update will also include the massive UI update which distinctly sets Sense 5 apart from Sense 4+.
We’ve known since February that HTC has been working on Sense 5 updates for global variants of HTC One X, One X+, One S and the HTC Butterfly. Since the HTC Droid DNA is a variant of the HTC Butterfly, we’re going to assume that HTC is also working on an update for that device as well. Since Verizon has tight control over when/if updates are rolled out to their devices, we wouldn’t be surprised if we go another month or two before we hear anything official.
