The HTC U11 is getting a major camera boost with its next update

HTC recently announced that its new flagship, the U11, would be getting 60fps video recording in a future update – but we didn’t think it would arrive this fast.

Owners of the HTC U11 in Taiwan have reported that build 1.26.709.3 is rolling out to their devices, according to Android blog Android Authority.

That’s HTC’s home turf, so it’s not surprising it’s letting the update loose there first. Hopefully international rollout won’t be too far behind.

Build 1.26.709.3 is a hefty download, weighing in at 624.59MB, and as well as adding the ability to shoot video in 1080p at 60fps, the update features the July 2017 Android security patch, as well as the usual bug fixes and minor tweaks.

The addition of 60fps recording makes the U11 something of a video beast, as it now has the ability to shoot in 30fps, 60fps, and 120fps.

Other than that, the HTC U11 is an all-around strong effort from the firm – we gave it a healthy 4/5 stars in our review – with standout features including its QHD display, large battery, and hi-res audio support.
