HTC One Android 4.3 update to address camera issues

With the HTC One Android 4.3 update on the horizon, the Taiwanese manufacturer has confirmed that the software patch will also include a fix for ongoing camera issues.

While the HTC One has become one of the most popular handsets on the market, rivalling the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5S, users have reported continued problems with the phone’s camera, with low-light shots tinged with red, blue or purple.

Having acknowledged the discoloration issues with the HTC One camera, the manufacturer has now revealed that it will work to introduce a fix alongside the Android 4.3 HTC One update in the near future. No date has yet been given for the software rollout.

“We recently received isolated reports of a purple colour that appears on the images taken with HTC One,” an official spokesperson for the manufacturer stated. “After examining the internal relations, we are planning a software update that will improve the contrasts of colour in low light conditions.”

They added: “As we work to improve this aspect of the user experience, we would like to thank our customers for their patience. In the meantime, if you are experiencing this issue, we ask you to contact our customer service for assistance.”

With the HTC One having been joined by the HTC One Mini in recent weeks, recent rumours and leaks have seen both a phablet sized HTC One Max and a HTC One tablet appear online.

While the HTC One tablet looks set to be a 10-inch Android powered affair, the HTC One Max has been repeatedly shown sporting an integrated fingerprint reader similar to that found on the newly unveiled iPhone 5S.
