Google has just pushed an update for its current flagship smartphone – the Nexus 5 that delivers several improvements to the smartphone’s camera.

According to Google’s Director of Engineering for Android David Burke, the smartphone’s camera will now have faster focusing speeds and will aim to select faster shutter speeds and lessening its reliance on the phone’s Optical Image Stabilisation function. Moreover, the white balance and exposure algorithms have also been improved.

Google has also increased the launch time for the camera and added a new progress indicator in HDR+ mode, which now shows users how the photo processing progresses.

The update is said to have taken Google’s team around 5 weeks to complete. Other than the camera improvements and fixes, the update will also fix the face unlock bug on the Nexus 5.
