HTC has rolled out a software update for its new One M9 handset that hopes to fix some of the camera troubles you may have read about in its early reviews. However, the software is only available to those in the U.S. because it ships pre-installed on international models.

The default camera app that’s baked into the OnePlus One’s CyanogenMod 11S software doesn’t do its 13-megapixel sensor much┬ájustice, so many use a third-party alternative. Now there’s another that could better than anything you’ll find in Google Play.

It’s the default camera app from ColorOS, and it brings features like 4K video recording, the ability to capture 50-megapixel photos, and support for the RAW image format.

Samsung’s major overhaul of the Galaxy S6 won’t stop at a brand-new design and vastly improved software. We’re also expecting the best internal components available, including a new rear-facing camera that will have a 20-megapixel sensor and optical image stabilization.

Of course, Samsung won’t confirm that until its Unpacked event on March 1, but the South Korean company has promised that you’ll get effortlessly “amazing pictures” from the Galaxy S6.

In fact, if these leaked photos are genuine, the One M9 will look almost identical to its predecessor, but its rear-facing camera will be redesigned to accommodate its larger sensor.
