The simplified UI is rather clean and surprisingly simple looking when compared to the earlier versions. There is no other information to be shared at this moment. The February 19 event will bring out more juicy details about Sense 5.0 UI in details.
Rumors are rife with HTC making smartphones for developing countries. It is understandable that HTC may come out with a device that is specific to China or even India, for instance. The company had announced below average quarter results lately.
HTC currently has 6 per cent of market share in the Chinese market. Talking about India, where the company hasn't launched any affordable handset under Rs.10, 000 in recent times. It makes a sensible move on the part of HTC to launch an affordable Android running handset. The Indian smartphone market is dominated by Samsung and Micromax, to be precise.
