On Monday we shared a report that the HTC One M9 was experiencing an overheating issue due to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset. The surface temperatures for the device were reaching 131 degrees Fahrenheit during benchmark tests.
Shortly after that, one of HTC's execs wanted to reassure customers that it was because the final software revisions weren't in place and the overheating issue would be fixed. The latest report from XDA suggests they have kept their word. Here's a quote describing the fix:
Something to calm you guys down a little (and believe me, i'm most glad to hear this too):
My source just recieved an OTA update. Changelog: thermal improvements and camera improvements.
Device now runs aprox. 9-10℃ lower now. Max temp reached now (even while plugged to charger) --> 40℃
Sounds good to me,, way to go htc ~ herwegan
On top of this revelation from a fellow forum poster, HTC themselves recently Tweeted that the device is finalized and ready to be shipped. We will have to wait until final retail shipping units have been tested to be sure, but things are looking good. Whew! Assuming everything reported is true, HTC (and Qualcomm) fans can breathe a sigh of relief.
