HTC’s One M9 doesn’t have the best camera out there, but a new update should at least help the company keep up with the competition. New software will add the ability to shoot photos in RAW image format along with a few other features.
Unlike JPEGs, RAW images, which HTC stores as .DNG files, don’t process and compress your photos. That makes it easier to edit them later, though they’ll also take up a lot more space on your phone. Thankfully, the One M9 packs a microSD slot if you need to extra storage. The update comes just a few days after LG officially unveiled the G4, which also lets you shoot in RAW format and puts a ton of emphasis on its own 16-megapixel camera.
Other improvements include more control over HTC’s Split Capture feature, and the ability to add and remove camera modes from your phone. Finally, the company is adding a new “Crop-Me-In” option, though that’s only available for the One (M8 EYE) and Desire EYE handsets.
The update is available now over on Google Play. Just hit the source link below to grab it for yourself.
