HTC One M9's camera now has support for RAW files
Earlier in April, HTC rolled out a software update for the One M9, specifically for its rear camera. The update enhanced the camera's capabilities, allowing it to take better photos in various scenarios, including outdoor and indoor. Today, HTC released another update, this time for the HTC Camera app, bringing support for RAW files.

While the Camera app is available on multiple HTC handsets, only the One M9 is getting RAW support. This should allow users (at least those who want more than just point-and-shoot photos from their M9) to get better images from the handset's rear camera.

As you may know, the One M9 features a 20 MP main camera, unlike last year's One M8, which comes with a 4 MP UltraPixel Duo snapper. As our One M9 review and several other tests (see here and here) are showing, the 20 MP rear camera of HTC's latest flagship isn't quite on par with the cameras of other comparable smartphones. But it's nice to see that HTC is trying to make things better in this regard.

The update to the HTC Camera app (which, by the way, can be downloaded from Google Play via the source link below) also brings minor enhancements for other HTC smartphones.
