HTC Sense 4.0 update will add 50GB of Dropbox cloud storage

Android, Mobile phones, Tech Digest news

HTC’s next update to their Sense Android UI re-skinning looks to be a significant one according to a new report from PocketNow.

They’ve got their hands on a “non-final build” of Sense 4.0, which they state now offers 50GB of Dropbox storage space via a virtual drive, with the cloud storage service deeply integrated into other apps on the handsets, such as the email client.

It will be a major boost for HTC fans, following the Taiwanese firm’s partnership with Dropbox back in October last year. It was first thought that HTC would offer just 5GB of Dropbox storage with each new phone.

Other improvements to the Android re-skinning according to PocketNow include graphical streamlining for “reduced visual clutter”, a new task switcher, universal Beats support, a more informative lock-screen and a major overhaul of the native email client, which the blog describes as the “best-looking and most functional email client available for Android”.

Very exciting stuff, and very much in line of HTC new “quality over quantity” mantra for 2012. We’ll bring you more on Sense 4.0 come MWC 2012, where the new OS skin alongside HTC’s new handset range is expected to be revealed.
