Google is to issue its first Android 4.4 KitKat update, which will address camera issues associated with the Nexus 5.
Android 4.4.1 is due to land in the next few days, principally focusing on the camera’s software.
Google’s director of engineering for Android, Dave Burk, told The Verge that the fix will make the camera quicker to open, and provide faster autofocus as well as greater resistance to motion blur.
“You fix the motion blur,” Burk said, “and make everything faster.”
The 5-inch LG-made handset launched late October as the first device to have Android KitKat pre-installed.
So far, the new software has managed to secure a 1.1% market share as Google rolls out version 4.4 to its wide base of manufacturers.
The Nexus 4, Acer Nexus 7, Samsung Nexus 10, Galaxy S4 and HTC One are among the smartphones currently offering the update, depending on demographic location and network.
