As the HTC One M9 starts to hit consumers’ hands tomorrow, we can expect to see lots of examples of how the camera works. One of the knocks that HTC has been subjected to from reviewers who got early access to the HTC One M9 is that the performance of the camera was underwhelming. This criticism had to sting HTC given the change in hardware from their old 4 MP Ultrapixel configuration to the new 20 MP standard camera. HTC hopes to address that via an update to their camera app that will start rolling out over the next week depending on which carrier is involved.
According to Jason Mackenzie, President of HTC America, the software update will hit anytime between April 10th and April 17th. Reports indicate Verizon units will come with the update preloaded when units are delivered starting tomorrow. Sprint’s HTC Ony M9 units should also receive the update tomorrow, though it may not be preloaded initially. AT&T buyers will have to wait as the update is currently scheduled to start rolling out on April 17th. Meanwhile, although no official date has been mentioned, some T-Mobile users are reporting the update has already started to hit their devices.
