Smartphone users don’t tend to be the most patient bunch in the world: we want faster data, new phones sooner, and software update now, now, now. On the hardware front, that need for speed has extended to way we power our phones; the old days of waiting hours and hours for a smartphone to get a full charge are long over, replaced with modern fast-charging tech. When HTC launched its One A9 late last year, some shoppers may have raised an eyebrow at the phone’s petite 2150mAh battery, but at least there was Quick Charge 2.0 support – and better still, the promise of Quick Charge 3.0 to come. It may have taken months to get here, but it’s finally arriving, as a new One A9 update hits users in Europe.

In addition to making good on that guarantee of Quick Charge 3.0 support, the update has the usual assortment of system updates with the latest security patches, as well as a feature that allows users to manually configure screen color temperature.

So far, we’ve only heard about EU distribution for the new One A9 update, but we’re keeping an ear out for any word about availability elsewhere.
