While HTC Americas President Jason Mackenzie recently said that the many leaks concerning the HTC One are just a sign of consumer excitement, I'm sure he wishes customers didn't have reasons to be excited about yet another leak. In what's either an intentional reveal or the worst case of protecting smartphone secrets in years, a video showing the next version of HTC Sense UI has appeared online.
The three-minute video showcases a few tidbits about the new version of Sense, including the ability to select themes that change the wallpaper and accent colors of the user interface. The UI looks just like the current version of Sense, but the ability to quickly apply themes is something we haven't seen since early versions of the Android overlay. It also includes options for adjusting font size and font selection between Helvetica and LCD.
HTC will also utilize gesture support in its next version of Android. A gestures menu shows the ability to swipe up or double tap to wake the phone, swipe left to get into widgets, or swipe right to go directly to Blink Feed. Holding the phone in landscape and pressing the volume button will launch the camera.
We expect HTC to reveal more details at its March 25 press event, but considering all of the information that has leaked in recent weeks, there may not be much information left to reveal.
