HTC announced the One M9 earlier this month over at MWC 2015 in Barcelona. The phone featured a slightly refined design over its predecessor One M8, along with new 2015-grade hardware. But the thing that grabbed most of our attention was the all new Sense 7.0 UI from HTC.
Sense 7 packs a heck lot of new features, including location aware launcher, enhanced camera experience and profound customization ability. The new theme engine on Sense 7 let’s you customize your device in a way that hasn’t been done on Android before, not by any custom launcher or even a Custom ROM. On Sense 7 you can just take a picture of the dress you’re wearing and the new theme engine will have your phone themed to that in all its entirety, which includes icon packs, wallpaper, status bar color, and more, basically throughout the OS.
However, all that Sense 7 goodness is exclusive to One M9 at this time, and to its predecessor One M8, Sense 7 update will come later this year. HTC hasn’t even mentioned One M7 yet for its plans to push out the Sense 7 update. But thanks to folks over at XDA, who have already put out a custom ROM for HTC One M7 including all of the new features from Sense 7.
The Sense 7 port for One M7 is based on firmware version 4.16.410.10 and it actually runs on Sense 6.0 but with all the features of Sense 7, that’s how ports work, in case you didn’t knew. The team behind the port is SkyDragon, and is contributed by users matitorres07 and dragonesdenano.
