OnePlus One owners have been waiting patiently for the Android 4.4.4. KitKat over-the-air update since late July. We’re pleased to inform you that the update is now live and to celebrate the new update we’re giving away 3 OnePlus One Invites. You can go ahead and check your devices for the update, if you don’t see it yet relax! They’re couple of ways to get the update manually for those who aren’t rooted or know jack about rooting. I will list the methods below after the full change log for the update


  • Upgraded to Android 4.4.4
  • Updated to new versions of Google apps
  • Added Clear Image

The update also comes with “Clear Image” mode feature added to the  OnePlus One camera. The company stated in a recent forum post that,


“Clear Image is your camera on clarity steroids. It’s your camera over 9000. Once you switch on the new Clear Image mode in the Camera app, nothing but awesomeness will be captured. 10 individual photos are stitched together for a final super high-res photo when you snap a shot. Through interlacing and compression algorithms, the camera improves clarity, reduces noise in low light, and adds detail that other cameras cannot. But this is not all. Unlike other photo stitching software, Clear Image minimizes file sizes while maximizing for quality.”
