HTC Sense 3.0 UI not coming to Desire S, Desire HD and older devices

A couple of days ago, when HTC announced the new Sensation Android smartphone, the company has also unveiled an enhanced version of its HTC Sense UI, namely Sense 3.0.

Now, owners of already-launched HTC smartphones may want to know if Sense 3.0 will come to their devices.

Unfortunately, the answer seems to be “no.”

Answering to this question (“what are that chances of seeing the rather nice Sense 3.0 on my Desire HD?”), HTC stated the following:

“due to Sense’s hardware requirements, only our newest devices (Flyer, EVO 3D, Sensation) will be able to support it.”

Most likely, 1Ghz single core processors just can’t handle the new UI (yes, the HTC Flyer also has a single-core processor, but it’s a 1.5GHz one). So even if you have an HTC Desire S, or HTC Incredible S (both released quite recently), you won’t be able to enjoy the enhancements Sense 3.0 brings. That kinda sucks, right?

In case you haven’t seen what HTC Sense 3.0 looks like, you can watch the video below (the new UI is shown on the HTC Sensation):

    yep, evo 3d and sensation have 4gb internal memory, but only 1gb is available to the user. the rest is occupied by android and the new sense

    Would I like an already burdensome UI bringing to a device unable to support it?, in a word no. AOSP all the way here anyway CM FTW!
