HTC U12+ updated with camera zoom, refinements to Edge Sense, more (UPDATED)
UPDATE: The HTC U12+ update that made it to Taiwan initially is now rolling out in the United States. The changelog shows it's exactly the same update with the same improvements, but a different version number. Enjoy!

Great news for HTC fans who are actively using the company's latest flagship, the U12+, as a new update is now making its way to devices in various parts of the world. If you live in Taiwan, you'll most likely receive the update right away, otherwise, you'll have to wait a while longer.

HTC's Global PR Jeff Gordon has just confirmed that the update is currently rolling out to the Taiwan dual-SIM model and will be released in other regions, including Europe and North America, over the next few weeks.

The update brings camera auto zoom in video recording, improvements to the pressure sensitive buttons and Edge Sense, as well as June security patch. It's also worth mentioning that the update weighs in at 422MB, so it shouldn't take too long to download on the phone.

If you live in Europe or North America, don't check for the update, as it won't arrive this week according to HTC. Still, at least you now know what to expect from the upcoming update meant to improve some of the U12+ features.

No offense, did you expect people rejoicing for joy? or being angry?

I bought the phone and it's faring pretty well. The only issue I have with it is just the volume buttons.

I would jump for joy upon hearing about these updates. But I didn't buy a U12 :) As a proud former owner of an M7, I hope someone would put a bullet in HTC's head (figuratively speaking) and put an end to this miserable company.
