Google was able to update the Nexus 5 just five weeks after its launch - a feat considered impressive by many Android fans.
Google has announced the launching of Android 4.4.1 on the Nexus 5 today. The latest version of KitKat, Google says, focuses on the camera capabilities of the Nexus 5. Dave Burke, Director of Engineering for Android, says that the update should significantly improve the image quality of the camera.
To make that happen, the team sped up the frame rate and worked on the autofocus, the exposure, and the white balance. Another noteworthy feature of the update is the new HDR+ mode which proffers excellent shots in challenging environments.
"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," Google said.
Android 4.4.1 is now rolling out to the Nexus 5 starting today.
