HTC One M9 receiving a camera and battery life-improving update right now

The HTC One M9 smartphone has been receiving a lot of complaints regarding its camera, and its makers seem to be doing all they can in order to fix them. They have now come up with one more update for the device, which is aimed at improving its camera and battery life performance.

This OTA download is rolling out for the HTC One M9 in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. While select Asian nations have already received it a few days ago, North Americans will be getting it later this month.

The enhancements this upgrade brings with it include a better auto-exposure balance algorithm aimed at improving the overall dynamic range. This will apparently help images clicked from the One M9 to appear more detailed and balanced.

The low-light performance of the phone’s 20MP rear snapper also gets some enhancements moreover. Once the update is applied to the software of this HTC device, its power consumption while using apps like YouTube, Facebook, Skype and Google Hangouts is also said to improve. Lastly, heating issues experienced during charging are being addressed by it as well.

A sharp look at the specs of the HTC One M9:

– Display: 5-inch, 1080p full HD
– OS: Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense 7 UI
– CPU: 2GHz octa core Snapdragon 810 (64-bit)
– GPU: Adreno 430
– Memory: 3GB RAM, 32GB storage (expandable up to 128GB)
– Camera: 20.7MP rear, Ultrapixel front
– Battery: 2840mAh (with fast charging support)
– Dimensions: 144.6 x 69.7 x 9.61mm
– Weight: 157gms

The One M9 smartphone was launched by the company earlier this year as its flagship device for 2015. Despite its advanced offerings, it has been unable to triumph over competition, and this has hurt the company’s revenues a great deal. In contrast, one of its main rivals, the Galaxy S6 is doing quite well in the market.
