HTC One receiving software update with camera improvements

Good news for HTC One owners: the much lauded handset is now receiving a software update that brings some enhancements and improvements to the camera. HTC says the software update will target European models of the One at first, also bringing some stability improvements, along with general nips and tucks.

You won’t be seeing an upgrade to Jelly Bean 4.2, but it’s still good to see HTC pushing out improvements while it works on a major update. The company says that this update will bring improvements to sound capture with the Zoe feature, as well as a new noise reduction option when capturing slow motion video.

General camera tweaks have also been applied in certain shooting conditions. HTC says that users should see “Improved color reproduction and dynamic range” with the update, and the company has also squashed a bug that displayed the wrong ISO setting in image EXIF data. Other than that, HTC states that there’s “improved system performance and stability” in general.

The update will push the software version of the One to 1.29.401.13. It’s reportedly rolling out to handsets in Europe right now, but we haven’t seen anything just yet on our own unit. If you want to check manually for the update, head into Settings, About, Software Update, then wait and see if there’s a surprise waiting for you. If not, keep an eye out: it should be with you soon enough.
