Jason Mackenzie, HTC’s North American President, took to Twitter today with a reminder that will please many HTC One users, stating that “Sense 6 will push to current HTC One users by end of May.” This will be coming to both the United States and Canada.

There is no word on whether the complete features of Sense 6.0 will be included or if parts will be omitted. While the changes from Sense 5.5 are minor, mainly focused on the camera feature set, the update will be welcome to current M7 owners looking to take advantage of that Ultrapixel camera which, unlike the M8, comes with optical image stabilization. However, when additional details arrive HTC will post the full feature list for Canada on their software update site.

    “and also promised both devices will be upgraded to the latest version of Android for at least another year.”

    That’s the most important part to me. Knowing that I’ll be getting updates all through my 2 year contract definitely makes HTC look like an easy choice to stay with when the time to upgrade rolls around next year. I remember my previous phone, the Motorola Atrix, got it’s update to 2.3 a few months after release, and was never updated again despite promises of 4.0, and it being a flagship phone. Glad to see HTC isn’t the same way Motorola was.

      The Motorola during the days of Atrix is completely different than what Motorola is today. After Google bought them out, Motorola went from crap to great overnight. However, now that Lenovo bought them, who knows if they’re going to continue to support their devices like its time under the Google’s wings.

    The sad thing is that older Samsung devices don’t get the newest version of Touchwiz.

      If they did maybe touchwiz wouldn’t crash as often on my note 3
