HTC media representatives have confirmed to PhoneNews.com that an update is still coming to address consumer complaints with their Qualcomm-based smartphones.
The manufacturer promised customers that an update would be released by the end of last month, but remained silent at the start of April. Other consumer activists such as HTCClassAction.org have noted HTC’s failure to deliver any update, as well as all of HTC’s prior conflicting statements.
HTC did not confirm any other information to PhoneNews.com, including what the update would specifically improve, or when exactly the update would be released. HTC would not confirm reports that the update would enable the Qualcomm’s built-in 2D graphics acceleration, and denied that the update would enable the built-in Direc3D acceleration that exists as well. HTC even went as far as to be unable to confirm if the update would require carrier approval, or be released as a single CAB update for the entire line of Qualcomm-based handsets.
