HTC has promised that North American HTC One M9 owners should be expecting a firmware update for the beleaguered flagship smartphone sometime soon. This week, the HTC Twitter account clarified that Canadians will be able to install this update before the summer is out, with the rollout taking place before the end of August.
@TRSHD Yes, we're rolling out an update in the next several weeks. You can expect an update to Canadian devices before the end of August.
