Yesterday we reported that the newest version of KitKat, version 4.4.1 would soon start rolling out. Little did we know it would be sooner than we surmised. Last night the update started rolling out. It first started hitting the Nexus 5, but then started filtering out to the Nexus 4 and the 2013 LTE Edition of the Nexus 7.

Just as reported, the update primarily comes with a slew of camera improvements and perhaps a bit more. Any additional changes have yet to be detailed, but we have reports of improved speaker output as well as some minor bug fixes. For the most part we are pleased to see the camera boosts which include a new HDR+ mode, faster focusing (especially in low light), truer colors, faster white balancing, and the ability to pinch-zoom the viewfinder in HDR+ mode.

If you don't want to wait for the OTA rollout, you can grab it manually and sideload it. Here are a few links below to Google's servers hosting the update. Be sure to ask in the forums for instructions on how to do that if you are unfamiliar with the process. It's not too tough, but it is involved and isn't something you want to make a mistake doing.
