HTC confirms that an update for the European HTC One is rolling out at the moment that will bring the device a plethora of new features. The update, labeled version 1.29.401.13, is set to be released in waves, so if your device doesn't receive the update today, it should be receiving it within the next week or two. The update brings several enhancements to one of the major selling points of the HTC One, its Ultrapixel camera, and it also brings improvements to the device's performance and stability.
The camera enhancement suite brings improvements to sound capture when you're using HTC Zoe. It also improves noise reduction when you're doing a slow motion movie capture. It reduces over-exposure in non-HDR images and improves color reproduction and dynamic range in various conditions. Also if you manually adjust the ISO settings, the correct ISO info will be displayed in the EXIF information.
Currently, the update is only rolling out to the European HTC One, but hopefully it will reach HTC One users all around the world, including the U.S., soon. Users will be able to access the update OTA through the "Check for Updates" setting in their "About Phone" page. Alongside the camera enhancement suite, the update will also bring fixes to make your device more stable, as well as performance boosts to make your Android experience much more pleasant.
The HTC One is HTC's flagship smartphone. The company hopes that this device will save it from the financial rut that it is currently in. So far things are looking pretty good for the phone.
