The first HTC One is about to get a face-lift of sorts.

Not everyone can buy the new HTC One (M8), and HTC is aware of that fact. Instead of telling customers that they're out of luck however, the company is giving them a taste of its newest smartphone. Jacon Mackenzie, an executive at HTC, has announced that Sense 6 will release in the US and Canada for the original HTC One by the "end of May".

HTC has subsequently confirmed via Twitter that Sense 6 will roll-out for EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) from the end of May also.

HTC's Sense 6, also nicknamed Sixth Sense, is a software suite and overlay that unveiled alongside the HTC One (M8) smartphone in March. Based on Android 4.4. KitKat, it is similar to Sense 5 but offers customisations like colour themes, more fonts and transparency, updates for pre-loaded apps, etc.

We will update you when the update takes place, as well a detail exactly what works and what doesn't.
