OTA software fix said to cool HTC One M9 test units by 10 degrees
One major variable among the devices tested was the chipset, and the Snapdragon 810 inside the HTC One M9 has a history of running hot. But during this week's Uh-oh webcast, HTC Americas president Jason Mackenzie said that he company wouldn't send out any product to consumers unless they were confident in that device. The executive added that the new flagship will be launched starting April 10th somewhere in the Americas region.
So how did HTC take care of the temperature issue? According to one XDA member, his source with an HTC One M9 test unit received an OTA update with the changelog listing "thermal improvements and camera improvements." The test unit is now running at about 104 degrees fahrenheit, just two degrees warmer than the HTC One (M8)'s temperature during the aforementioned benchmark test.
Earlier today, we told you that HTC has also fixed whatever software issue caused it to delay the launch of the One M9 in Taiwan. Originally scheduled for March 16th, the handset will now be released tomorrow.
