The All New HTC One will be officially unveiled by the Taiwan-based phone maker next week and the leaks continue to hit the web on a daily basis. After we've seen photos of the device from every angle and heard almost everything about its technical specifications, now it's time to get a closer look at the Sense 6 interface that ships with HTC's flagship smartphone for 2014.
About a week ago an HTC One 2014 carrier brochure leaked online revealing that the HTC One sequel will have support for a double-tap to wake feature, which might be a reminiscent of the function debuted by Sony on the Xperia Tablet Z, and later used by LG on the likes of LG G2 or G Pro 2.
The leaked Sense 6.0 video showing us that, besides the double-tap to wake feature we've learned about a week ago, HTC will also introduce more gestures for the lockscreen of the One 2014. While the phone is sleeping, in portrait orientation, if you swipe left you it opens the widget panel, if you swipe right it opens BlinkFeed, while a swipe up gesture unlocks the phone. If you hold the phone in portrait orientation you will be able to wake it and launch the camera if you press the volume buttons.
The aforementioned brochure was talking about a collection of features known as Motion Launch and this is what we may be looking at. Motion Launch would also allow the user to answer a calls by holding the phone to their ear.
The video also reveals other aspects of the Sense 6.0 interface, along with the fact that the HTC One 2014 will indeed run Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box. Anyway, the Motion Launch gestures seem to be the only new software feature of the handset.
It's also worth mentioning that the below screen recording was taken on a Sense 6 build installed on HTC One 2014.
If the rumors prove true, the HTC One 2014 will arrive with a 5-inch 1080p screen, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32/64 GB of storage, microSD support, two-cameras on the back, 5 MP secondary camera, and a design reminiscent of last year's HTC One.
As I was mentioning above, The All New HTC One will be officially introduced by the Taiwanese phone maker on March 25. The launch event will be held simultaneously in London and New York. Without further ado, let's have look at the Sense 6 leaked video. Thoughts?
