HTC One camera issues to be fixed in upcoming update
The HTC One was among the phones receiving the highest score here on Pocketnow with the occasion of our reviews, alongside the Samsung Galaxy S 4. The Taiwanese company did a great job in pushing out updates (for improving the camera, for bumping Android’s version numbers to 4.2.2), but a 4.3 update is on its way. Blue and Red variants we’ve met in Berlin already had it installed.
The Ultrapixel camera on the One should, on paper, deliver great low-light performance, but, it is often not the case, especially on some units which are displaying a purple haze issue under certain conditions. HTC is aware of that and is committed to fixing the issue via a software refresh. Whether this will be a separate update or part of the Android 4.3-bump around the corner is yet unknown.
