After the update was rolled out to the HTC One M9 on Sprint and T-Mobile, it was inevitable that the better camera software would come to users on the bigger carriers. Starting today, the OTA camera update is now available on AT&T.

We can also expect the GPE Sony Z Ultra to get the update over the coming weeks, thus concluding the Android 5.1 update rollout for all GPE...

After weeks of rumors and speculation, the HTC One M9+ has finally gone official today. The handset was unveiled in China by the company and will unfortunately remain an exclusive to the region. In order to make it stand apart from its 1080p sibling, HTC has made some rather odd design changes. The most notable among these changes is the relatively larger 5.2 inch panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 or Quad HD (2K). The company has also decided to add a central home button to the device which also doubles as a fingerprint scanner....

HTC started rolling out the Android 5.0.2 update for the One M8 smartphone some time ago.
