If you go over to Sprint’s support page for the HTC One max, you’ll see that the update that is rolling out to the device today contains only a single feature – Wi-Fi calling support. However, as discovered by Android Central, this update is much bigger than that, and actually brings over the new Sense 6 UI that debuted on the HTC One M8 to the company’s one and only phablet.
Weight in at a hefty 537MB, the update includes most of the features that are part of Sense 6. There’s a refined user interface that is flatter and more colorful, improved BlinkFeed, a redesigned camera app (though without any Duo camera effects), Extreme Power Saving Mode, and themes. There’s likely more that will be revealed after a few users have gotten to play with the device after the update, though Motion Launch, a major feature that allows gesture-based actions on the HTC One M8, is missing.
The update should be rolling out to devices right about now, though as usual it will be a while before it arrives on every handset. The Verizon variant of the HTC One max should be getting the same update pretty soon, and so should the HTC One, which HTC had promised would be running Sense 6 by the end of May.
