Sprint’s HTC One M8 and E8 are getting their OTA update which includes international WIFi calling and other nice features. E8 is basically a plasticated M8 version with the same specs and a 4 MP camera instead of the 13MP sensor, so it should get the same updates the flagship is getting at all times. Sprint is one of the few US carriers tending to both handset needs in offering them the same new features and updates.
The most interesting update is international Wi Fi calling which would benefit Sprint users who dial out to people living overseas, even if this type of call is free only for people living in the US, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Other updated features include GPS enhancements, accessibility improvements, ItsOn integration – it being Sprint software used for managing and billing – and a small security patch.
The OTA will upgrade HTC E8 to version 1.22.651.1 whereas HTC M8 will get to version 3.30.651.2. The update will be rolling out in stages so you may have to wait a little while before getting yours.
