One of the key features from the new HTC One was the really cool looking case that was announced with it. Known as the Dot View cases, this brought back memories from the retro days. As we all know, the case requires an app to function on the device.
HTC has now made this application available on the Play Store, indicating that this feature could be coming to its existing lineup of smartphones like the HTC One, One Mini and the One Max in the coming days. However, using this feature will require compatible hardware, so this also hints that HTC is possibly looking to launch similar cases for its older devices as well.
The availability of a dedicated app means that the manufacturer won’t have to update the entire firmware to bring changes to this particular feature. We recently saw the BlinkFeed and Zoe apps making their way to the Play Store as well. This is something Motorola did with a few of its core apps last year.
