A few weeks ago, there were reports that HTC is hoping to update Sprint’s HTC One M9 with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, before the end of January.
Even though this had not happened, the company is keeping up with the trend that is followed by other flagship smartphone manufacturers and has released an official confirmation, that its device is indeed eligible to the Marshmallow update, which the users can download over-the-air (OTA).
As in all cases, the rollout will not happen for all the handsets at once, but it will be done in batches. However, it is expected that all handsets will be updated within the next few months.
For refreshing your memory of the offering by HTC, here is a brief summary of all its major specs.
The HTC One M9 measures 144.6 x 69.7 x 9.6 mm (5.69 x 2.74 x 0.38 in) and weighs 157 grams. It features a 5-inch screen that has a resolution of 1920X1080 pixels and a pixel density of 441ppi. As for the processor, the device is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 that houses a quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 and a quad-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A57, coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory, expandable up to 200GB via microSD card. In the camera department, the M9 packs a 20MP primary sensor, located on the rear, and a 4MP shooter embed on the front.
To accommodate this heavy spec sheet, the Taiwanese tech giant has backed up the flagship smartphone with a 2,840mAh battery. It is worth noting that various users have reported that the particular battery size has proven inadequate in certain occasions, so let’s hope that HTC has managed to address the issue with the latest update.
