HTC One M9's next major software update to bring color temperature control and Guest Mode

HTC One M9's next major software update to bring color temperature control and Guest Mode
Although the HTC One M9 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop since launch, it doesn't have all the features that other Lollipop-based handsets are offering. For example, just like Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, the One M9 doesn't include Lollipop's Guest Mode. Fortunately, it looks like this will be added in the "next major software update", which will likely bring Android 5.1 Lollipop to the M9.

According to HTC ROM developer LlabTooFeR, the update will actually bring not just Guest Mode, but also the ability to control the One M9's screen color temperature (of course, you can already do this, but only if you're using third-party apps).

There's no word on exactly when the M9 should get this update. However, we're expecting HTC to start its rollout in the next several months. We assume that the One M9 won't be the only HTC smartphone to receive the update, but we just have to wait and see if we're right on this one.

Do you have an HTC One M9? If yes, do you think Guest Mode and color temperature control are two features that are worth adding to its next software update?
