Upcoming HTC U11 update brings Bluetooth 5.0, August Security Patch, and sRGB Screen Mode

There’s plenty to love and hate about the HTC U11, its Edge Sense feature will always divide fans opinions, but it’s always good to see a handset becoming all that it can be. Yesterday we reported that HTC was preparing to enable Bluetooth 5.0 on the handset via a software update, additional details of which have emerged today.

According to @LlabTooFeR, most major regions should receive the update during August which should bring the build number up from 1.2x to 1.3x. Besides upgrading the Bluetooth on the U11 from version 4.2 to 5.0, the update will also include the following:

  • August Security patch
  • 1080p 60fps Video mode
  • sRGB Screen Mode
  • General camera tweaks
  • Performance Tweaks
  • Thermal tweaks
  • Edge Sense tweaks

The upcoming update to the HTC U11 brings a few new features such as being able to shoot 1080p video @ 60fps and adjusts some existing ones such as Edge Sense. The new sRGB screen mode should result in more accurate color and balanced colors being shown on the HTC U11’s Super-LCD display. With the update apparently rolling out sometime this month, it’s really just a case of sitting and waiting for the update notification to pop on the handset.
