Right after the March 1 announcement of the HTC One M9, we came across reports of the smartphone facing overheating related complaints. This has caused HTC to take notice and has also raised some concern among fans. Since most of these overheating related incidents occur while running CPU heavy tasks like benchmark apps, the company’s Senior Global Online Communications Manager, Jeff Gordon has clarified on Twitter that the software used by the One M9 is not final.
That’s a very weak defense for a smartphone which is about to go official in a couple of weeks from now. His exact words were – “HTC One M9 software isn’t final yet, no matter how many pre-release benchmarks you run” which has come in the light of the most recent overheating complaint that we saw from the handset.
The Snapdragon 810 chipset on the smartphone is said to be the real issue, as has been mentioned by several reports over the past couple of months. It will be interesting to see how HTC can fix an issue like this on the software level, as the chipset is clearly the problem.
