There have been a number of reports over the last 24 hours about a HTC One M9 smartphone overheating during some benchmark tests an now HTC has responded to the reports.
HTC has said that the software that is being used for the benchmarks is not the final version that will be released on the HTC One M9, this was confirmed by HTC’s Jeff Gordon on Twitter.
PSA: One more time, all together now: HTC One M9 software isn’t final yet, no matter how many pre-release benchmarks you run.

Jeff Gordon then went on to say that anyone who is publishing benchmarks of the HTC One M9 at the moment is ‘doing so illicitly’.
It will be interesting to see how the HTC One M9 performs in benchmarks when the handset is actually released, the benchmarks that have been published are not of the final software of the device.
There have been rumors in the past about overheating problems on the Snapdragon 810 processor that is used in the handset and these latest reports just add to the rumors.
I very much doubt HTC would release a flagship smartphone with overheating issues, considering how much the company has invested into developing the handset, a people would not buy the device, I suspect that when the handset is released, there will be very different results in the benchmarks.
