Android 4.4.4, new camera feature rolls out to OnePlus One

Just in time for the middle of August, the promised July update is rolling out to the OnePlus One. The software includes a new camera feature, proximity sensor adjustments, the latest version of Android, and the obligatory bug fixes.

When snapping a photo, the new Clear Image merges ten images into one, high-resolution photo. OnePlus has several examples of this feature in action on its blog. The device features a 13 MP rear-facing camera.
