Android 4.4.1 arrives for Nexus 5

The latest version of KitKat provides tweaks and improvements for the camera experience

Just hours after learning that a new version of Android would be rolling out to the Nexus 5, the 4.4.1 update has begun. A post on Google+ tells us that the main features center around the camera and improved photographs.

  • HDR+ lets you to take great shots in challenging environments, say where there’s a large contrast of bright and dark portions of the scene and also in low light situations. When you press the shutter button, instead of taking just one picture, we take a burst of shots in about 1/3 of a second, and apply computational photography to intelligently fuse images together.
  • All of this gets a boost with an update to Android 4.4.1 rolling out today to Nexus 5. It improves the camera with faster focusing, especially in low light, faster white balancing, for truer colors, the ability to pinch-zoom the viewfinder in HDR+ mode and less shutter lag. 

Those of you with a Nexus 5 are advised to keep an eye on your notifications; the update begins today.
