For instance, the purported screenshots of the upcoming version of HTC’s Sense 5 interface overlay reminded us that we’ve been wishing for a way to remove BlinkFeed from the Home screen since we reviewed the One earlier this year.
Though we can’t completely vet the source behind the Sense 5.5 screenshots, they show a toggle button that allows you turn BlinkFeed on or off. If you do decide to leave it be, you’ll also have a plethora of new feeds to add to the aggregator.
This week’s Android 4.3 update finally brought Quick Settings over to the Notifications panel for Sense 5 users, but the leaks show the ability to actually customise which settings appear in the menu after the update. Sense 5.5 will also include the addition of more emoji-like emoticons in the keyboard app, though it’s unclear how they’ll appear on other platforms, and it may come with new camera modes, including Panorama+ and dual capture mode, which engages both the front- and rear-facing cameras at the same time.
Of course, like all rumours and leaks, you can take this one with a grain of salt until we hear something official from HTC. Who knows – maybe the upcoming October 15 event will not only reveal the heavily rumoured One Max, but the new version of Sense 5.5, too.
