Last week there were numerous reports that the HTC One M9 had overheated during a benchmark test. There were infrared images that showed the M9 being red hot while other flagships were cool. One explanation is that metal simply radiates more heat then plastic "DUH", but this explanation wouldn't be enough to ease consumer minds. HTC has already released an OTA update to address this "issue".
The update likely improves on the thermogenics of the device by throttling the 810 snapdragon. If it runs a bit slower it won't overheat. The changelog specifically states "thermal improvements". It goes on to further state that the device runs at approximately 9-10 degrees Celsius, and the highest temperature it will reach now is 40 degrees Celsius.
The other change that was mentioned in the changelog was camera improvements. The HTC One M9 reviews have been flooding the web and they all state the camera experience has been lacking. Hopefully this update will alleviate some of those camera issues like terrible low and mid light performance, and images turning out too warm and yellow in good lighting conditions.
