New screenshots of Android 5.0.1 with Sense 6 surface

New details have surfaced of what Android 5.0 Lollipop and Sense 6.0 will look like together. Screenshots revealed by persistent HTC leaker LlabTooFeR have revealed Android 5.0.1 and HTC Sense 6.0 running on the HTC One M8. The software still looks like HTC Sense, but with new animations and effects from Lollipop, including revamped notifications and a few new features.

Sense 6 on Lollipop adopts many of the changes to animations and user interface that came with Android 5.0, such as the button press effects. Users will also get access to lock screen notifications, as well as quick settings and the new multitasking view from Lollipop, taking over from the old HTC view. The settings are also now searchable, just like in stock Lollipop.

There's also a new "easy mode" to simplify things for less experienced users, similar to what we've seen in Samsung phones over the past couple of years. Easy mode appears to make it easier to access the basic features on your device, such as contacts, your internet browser and calculator, showing these through large, colorful tiles.

No word yet on exactly when the update will start rolling out to devices, but an early January release has been rumored in recent weeks. Officially, HTC has committed to rolling out Lollipop within 90 days of the official code drop, setting a deadline of Feb. 1, 2015.
