HTC One Gets Firmware Update On Canadian Carriers

HTC launched its flagship smartphone in April this year, which started to get in the hands of many customers from April 19 onwards. The HTC One comes running on Android 4.1.2 and a recent report suggests that the handset is receiving a firmware update on various Canadian carriers.

A Mobile Syrup report suggests that HTC One users on Rogers, Bell, TELUS and Virgin are getting firmware update version 1.29.666.17, up from 1.29.666.17.5. The firmware update  is said to bring 'system enhancements and bug fixes;' exact details of the change log are not available.

The Mobile Syrup report says "We're hearing that the finer details of the update brings a fix to the capacitive buttons sensitivity issues, plus the One is now more responsive. We're looking into further specifics of the change log."

The HTC One has come across a number of problems since its launch. Initially, the HTC One was expected to hit shelves in March but component supply issues circling the HTC One's UltraPixel camera sensor forced the company to delay the launch of its latest Android handset to April. HTC also pushed the release date of the handset in some regions to meet high demand in others.

After the handset started to get in the hands of customers many owners complained of weak signal on the handset. Even then a recent report suggests that the company has sold 5 million handsets within a month of launch.

The latest HTC One sports a 4.7-inch Super LCD 3 capacitive touchscreen display with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. A 1.7 GHz quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600 processor powers the smartphones. The HTC One also touts a 2-UltraPixel rear-facing camera.

The HTC One houses 2GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB internal storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, 4G, high speed HSPA+, micro USB and a 2,300 mAh battery. The handset measures 5.41 x 2.69 x 0.37 inches and weighs 5.04 ounces.
