The HTC J Butterfly is set to get an update to HTC Sense 5, according to Jack Tong, president of HTC North Asia, quoted by Focus Taiwan.

In a statement mainly focused on the increasing production capacity for the HTC One, due to strong demand, the HTC official also revealed some good news for HTC J Butterfly owners. According to Tong, updates for the J Butterfly are planned for release by this month’s end.

The updates will include a few of the features the HTC One already offers, starting with the Sense 5.0 interface, BlinkFeed included, as well as the slide show feature for the camera.

It will be interesting to see whether the update will also become available for the Verizon version of the HTC J Butterfly, the Droid DNA, which Verizon is currently offering for free with a two-year contract for a limited period of time. You may remember that a custom ROM gave users Sense 5.0 on the Droid DNA, but an official update would certainly make the software available to more users.
