T-Mobile HTC One M9 update is coming to improve the rear camera, BlinkFeed and more
T-Mobile customers sporting the latest flagship model from HTC will soon be the recipients of an 88MB update that will make some improvements to the 20MP rear camera, social media/news reader BlinkFeed and the user experience on the HTC One M9. The update takes the software to version 1.32.531.33.

In order to download and install the update, T-Mobile requires that you be connected to a Wi-Fi nework when going through the updating process, and demands that your battery be charged to at least 50%. You need to have at least 88MB of free storage available. It will go out OTA between April 20th and April 24th. The update will bring the T-Mobile variant of the HTC One M9 in line with the Verizon and Sprint versions of the phone.

As we've noted in our review of the handset, the new 20MP rear camera is a welcome improvement from the 4MP UltraPixel camera that was featured on the back of the HTC One (M7) and HTC One (M8). But we noted that the One M9's camera did not turn out impressive shots in low-light conditions. However, that might change as the update does improve pictures taken with the rear snapper under all conditions.

From what I've heard of the camera, it didn't improve the sharpness issue, the dynamic range or low light quality so HTC flunked out LOL... Sorry Bae....better luck um...next year?

The update doesn't help the camera much, the problem lies in the hardware the international version already received the update.

It's a very polite and reserved way to say camera didn't impress in low light. Camera is also also entirely awful in auto mode however can be greatly improved under manual control.

A software update won't save HTC. They need to do a wholesale firing of all departments, especially the quality control department and the department that thought a super brick and chunky phone with super bezels can outsell slim and sexy phones.

slim and sexy? like what? HTC doesn't have much bigger bezels than Sammy or Apple itself.. so what fantastic example of a 'slim and sexy' phone are you using? the american market consists of only a handful of OEM's.. all of which are currently being burned at the stake for a 'bezel' issue that was never a problem before 6 months ago..
