OnePlus One Gets Android 4.4 and Clear Image update

oneplus one review gizchina

OnePlus owners get your update on right now! Android 4.4 Kitkat is now heading to your phone in OTA updates along with new features.

I’ll be testing out the latest update for the OnePlus One which brings Android 4.4 Kitkat to the Flagship killer later today, and I suggest any other OPO owners do the same as there are some nice updates to be found.

Gizchina News of the week

The most important being the addition of Clear Image in the camera app. Once you update the system you will be able to turn on Clear Image in the camera app settings which bring super high-resolution photos to the OPO. Along with new algorithms, Clear Image takes 10 photos and stitches them together to create one low-noise, high-resolution image.

Other updates include adding updated Google apps, fixing touch gestures and other stability improvements.

      this only includes Cyanogenmod 11S driven International OnePlus One smartphones since chinese versions run Color OS only i guess

    It already had 4.4: 4.4.2 now it get’s 4.4.4

      actually, 4.4.4 was due to the heartbleed fix of openssl.

      cyanogenmod prompted this securing measurement in their 4.4.2 11S XNPH25R version already though which could have been told to be an unofficial 4.4.4 since they prompted it sooner than google did.

      what i mean is that basically update number sometimes doesn’t tell things
