With leaked Sense 5 ROMs for devices like the DROID DNA surfacing it was only a matter of time before a flood of HTC Sense 5 information started cropping up. Another few screenshots of the user interface has been posted to XDA, giving us a look at a few new things such as the call dialog, and what appears to either be an apps tray or a home screen.


These screenshots show more of the new look and feel throughout Sense. It’s a lot more clean than Sense 4, which was infinitely more clean than 2011’s Sense 3. HTC has a slight tendency to overdo it with gradients, but it looks like the company went with a more simple and refined look for its latest software overlay. The call dialog screen is a lot less cluttered than it used to be. We imagine a majority of in-call options are stuffed into the menu overlay button you see on the bottom right.

Another icon-filled screenshot looks like it could be a home screen or the apps tray. It’s a bit odd as you might only expect the clock widget on the home-screen, yet there seems to be more than 4 rows available. It’s possible HTC’s launcher has been updated for larger, higher resolution displays in order to fit that much onto one home screen. The other possibility is that this is the apps tray, though with folders and a widget there’s a lot of doubt to be had in that thought.

The other screenshots in this latest batch don’t show anything we haven’t seen before, but it’s nice to get another look at the settings menu and lock screen regardless. Check all of them out above and below, and be sure to stay tuned as we anticipate seeing a lot more between now and late February when the first Sense 5 device — the HTC M7 — is expected to be revealed.
