Since the launch of the HTC One M9 back in March, there’s been quite a kerfuffle over the supposed ‘disappointing’ camera. The phone performed quite nicely in our review, but it seems HTC isn’t resting on their laurels. In their latest software update for the phone, they’re aiming to make a good camera even better, and as a bonus they’re aiming at making the battery life better too.
Announced as a global release, the software update has so far been rolled out to the Asian and European markets so far, though we imagine Australia won’t be too far away. The update addresses those two key features, with a full list of improvements including:
So far only Vodafone Australia mentions any software updates for the M9, though this doesn’t appear to be the release that HTC is talking about. Optus and Telstra have no listing on their software update pages as yet, but we can’t imagine an update of this magnitude will be left behind for very long.
We’re attempting to get the update now and will of course be doing a camera re-test once it’s taken effect.
