The folks at OnePlus announced not too long ago that they’re “slowly” rolling a new OTA (Over-the-Air) update to the OnePlus One handset. It will be pushed out in stages, with a final deployment by the end of this week. In terms of improvements, the phone will see its Android version bumped to 4.4.4, an updated version of GAPPS (Google Apps), a new camera feature called “Clear Image” and more.
If you are wondering what Clear Image does. OnePlus says that it takes 10 individual photos, stitch them together to give you a “super high-res photo.” In addition, it also minimizes your photo’s file size without losing quality. You can see an example in the photo below.
Going over the update details, we did not see OnePlus addressing the call volume issue which is present not only in our OnePlus One but also in many others. Here is the full changelog:
