New HTC U11 software update will enable 60 FPS video recording "over the next couple of months"

Lately, we've been hearing a lot about a major software update that the HTC U11 is bound to receive. Now, HTC is officially confirming that an update is indeed coming soon, although it doesn't mention all the new features that are rumored to be included in it - like support for Bluetooth 5.0, or sRGB screen mode. Nevertheless, HTC can confirm that the U11 will gain support for 60 FPS (frames per second) video recording.

HTC says that the update enabling 60 FPS video recording "will be rolling out over the next couple of months to devices everywhere." As you can see, for now, there's no exact release date, but we do hope the update won't arrive towards the end of said two months.

The 12 MP rear camera of the HTC U11 can already shoot video at 30 FPS (4K and 1080p) and 120 FPS (1080p only). But having another option (60 FPS, likely only in 1080p) is always welcome, right?

I still don't understand why it was so difficult for something like this to be available out of the box. I mean the m7, m8 and m9 all supported video recording at 1080p @60fps.

I'm guessing the "couple of months" will be because of carrier delays to add their bloatware
