HTC Sense 3.0 not heading to older phones

First, the bad news – HTC Sense 3.0 will only be appearing on the very latest HTC smartphones, not the company other recent handsets. But there is some good news, with the company looking at using some parts of the interface to older smartphones.

According to TechRadar, the company initially used social network Twitter to confirm that the HTC Sense 3.0 would not be heading to older phones. In a tweet now deleted and in reply to a customer enquiry, the company said: 'Due to Sense's hardware requirements, only our newest devices (Flyer, Evo 3D, Sensation) will be able to support it.'

However, since that message, the company has changed its tact a little. A further Twitter remark said: 'Clarification: There are aspects of the latest HTC Sense that won't work on some of our previous devices. We are working to incorporate other aspects that will. Stay tuned.'

So some parts of the UI will actually be heading to older smartphones, probably not the processor-heavy 3D stuff, but other features like the launchable lock applications and widgets and the new unlocking system. Saying that, there are no firm details as yet, you'll have to sit tight and see what happens. Anything would be a bonus though.
