It's AT&T's turn to update the rear camera on the HTC One M9
AT&T has started pushing out an update to its subscribers using the HTC One M9. The file brings with it improvements to the rear camera. As we pointed out in our review of HTC's new flagship (which you can read right here), the 20MP rear camera is a vast improvement over the 4MP Ultrapixel snapper used on the back of the HTC One (M7) and HTC One (M8). But not only were there still some issues with it, pictures taken in less than optimal lighting conditions were not up to snuff. After downloading and installing this update, you should see an improvement in pictures taken with the rear camera.

The new software version will be 1.32.502.31, and HTC suggests that you hold 20 minutes aside for the process of updating your One M9. The manufacturer also recommends that you recharge your battery to at least 35% and have your phone plugged in while the update is in progress. Do not disconnect your phone until the entire update is completed or you might brick the device! We suggest being connected to a Wi-Fi network when updating your phone since the entire process runs about 20 minutes. 

If your phone has yet to receive the notification, you can sync your HTC One M9 to a PC and download the update directly from the HTC Sync Manager. Updating your phone manually means wiping all data from it and flashing a 2.1GB file. If you decide to go this route, back up your data before you start.

Now that AT&T has started rolling out this update, customers of all four major U.S. carriers with the HTC One M9 have the same software update inside as those with the international version of the phone.

The update has thankfully reduced the amount of noise that shows up on pictures taken.

Great. Now all The HTC M9 needs now is plastic surgery, a diet, serious osteoporosis to lose some height so it can be shorter, a rethought out heat sink or chip placement, a better screen, a CPU that doesn't over heat, better quality control, better battery optimization update. Oh a 2nd update after this one for the camera wouldn't hurt either. Sweet! The above is all they need and then HTC will be golden!
