OnePlus announced earlier today that their highly sought after flagship smartphone, the OnePlus One is getting the Android 4.4.4 KitKat treatment as we speak. A host of other devices have already upgraded to the latest version last month, but I guess it’s better late than never. The good news is that the company not only includes the latest version of Android in the update, but also adds a few new features. Some of the highlights include: a new version of Google apps, new screen calibration, and Clear Image. The calibration along with the proximity sensor should stop the OnePlus One from activating off-screen gestures while in your pocket. As for the Clear Image, this feature allows the camera to create a single high resolution photo with the use of 10 individual images. The full list of changes included with the update can be found below.
