HTC Edge (or HTC One X – the probable retail name of the device) has been feeding us with goodies (check out the most recent details that have surfaced prior to MWC). The yet unannounced device’s RUU (Rom Update Utility) was leaked last week and thanks to that and the hard work of some friendly neighborhood developers, we got the chance to look at the HTC One X’s Sense 4 UI.
There seem to be plenty of changes done to the setup and the overall feel of the latest version of Sense is a huge leap forward. So let’s take a look at what HTC Sense 4 is all about!
The first thing which pops into the fray is the ability to customize the lock rings in this version of the UI. There’s also a proper made landscape mode compared to previous installment of Sense or even other devices for that matter.
The clock which HTC has been using since yesteryear has also been the recipient of changes, while support for Beats Audio and Near Field Communications is also implemented in this version of the ROM.
By the first few looks, the stock live background the Sense 4 UI comes with also impresses in terms of design and usability.
Although the changes look great and overall the feel of this version of Sense seems to be better put together, until I don’t get a go at it, I won’t comment too much.
After drooling for months to get a chance to play around with the world’s first quad-core smartphone, I’ll take anything they throw at me. Let’s keep waiting as the rumors seem to show that the HTC Edge will pop up at this year’s Mobile World Congress.
As far as the HTC Edge / One X release date is concerned, we’re expecting the handset to hit shelves sometime during late Q1 / early Q2.
Come on HTC, pick it up a notch will you! Stay tuned for more.
