We may have called the Nexus 5 "the best phone $350 can buy," but its camera didn't exactly impress. The latest version of the Android OS, set to roll out in the "next couple of days," is aimed at fixing that. In an interview with Dave Burke, Google's Director of Engineering for Android, The Verge reports that Android 4.4.1 will address issues with autofocus, white balance, exposure and more by increasing camera speed. No word on a specific date, but Google assured us that it's coming soon.

Update: And by the "next couple days" Google apparently meant today. Android 4.4.1 is rolling out today and brings with it the aforementioned improvements along with the ability to pinch-zoom the viewfinder in HDR+ mode.
