Owners of the highly-acclaimed OnePlus One smartphone can expect a new version of their CyanogenMod 11 Android OS to roll out starting today, as OnePlus has announced that the new update has rolled out via OTA. This latest update brings the Android 4.4.4 KitKat to the One, including tweaks, fixes and updated apps and features – including a new camera feature called “Clear Image”.
The new update, now tagged as CM11S-XNPH30O, brings a number of new features to the One Plus One, but it is also bringing a number of bug fixes as well – most prominent among these a fix for the proximity sensors to prevent activation of screen while in your pockets. That in itself was a huge battery drain, and so that fix was certainly needed. Check below for a comprehensive list of bug fixes.
- Upgraded to Android 4.4.4
- Updated to new versions of Google apps
- Added Clear Image
- Added new (colder) calibration for the screen
- Proximity sensor prevents activation of off-screen gestures while in your pocket
- Capacitive touch keys supported in the recovery mode
- Increased capacitive button illumination
- Improved overall stability
- Fixed issues with vibration being disabled during Quiet Hours
- Fixed lockscreen not updating the track information during music playback
- Fixed microphone volume for all formats in the Voice Recorder app
- Fixed “OK, Google” not triggering voice search in Google Now
- Fixed Viber calls not working
- Fixed battery percent not updating in custom lock screens
- Fixed PicasaSync
- Fixed Camera “O” gesture activating lockscreen instead of triggering camera
- Fixed wallpapers not applying in full screen, taking the wrong size when cropping, etc
A new feature is also coming on to your OnePlus One – Clear Image, which is basically HDR mode on steroids. The mode interlaces 10 different photos of the same subject and radically improves clarity and detail on your images. Pretty nifty. Another new feature is the addition of a “colder” screen calibration for our device.
The update just rolled out today, so it might take a while for it to reach you – our way of saying that yes, even though you were one of the lucky ones to get a OnePlus One phone, you still have to wait for your update. One question of this is if CyanogenMod will be rolling out the same features to their CM11 nightlies. Seems unlikely at best, but we can sure hope.
