Just last week we reported that the HTC M7 would feature a cleaner, simplified look with Sense 5.0. Now a new screenshot allegedly taken from the upcoming lower-end HTC G2 seems to reconfirm Sense 5’s new design.

This isn’t the first time that screenshots of HTC Sense 5 have supposedly hit the net, but it certainly does seem to follow the same design pattern we’ve seen before, albeit slightly scaled down to fit the 320 x 480 display in the HTC G2. More than likely we will learn more at MWC later on this month, or perhaps even at next week’s HTC One event.


For those wondering about the HTC G2, there isn’t much to be excited about. The G2 is a basic 1GHz single-core smartphone with a 3.5-inch display.

The real news here is the change in the UI, not that it supposedly comes from the G2. What do you think of the new UI when compared to the current version of Sense? Like it or not?
