Motorola DROID Ultra, Mini, and Maxx receiving OTA update with camera improvements


The Moto X recently received a software update that drastically improved the camera quality and experience on the device, and now the same update is rolling out to the trio of Motorola and Verizon’s newest DROID lineup – the DROID Ultra, Mini, and Maxx.

The update has been under testing by members of Motorola’s soak test program since the last few days, and now Punit Soni, VP of Product Management at the company has announced its general availability. Post update, you’ll see a noticeable improvement in the camera, with faster focusing, consistent exposure, and improved white balance and HDR. Photos should come out sharper and have more detail as well. Also included in the update is 50GB of free Dropbox storage, though as always this will be valid only for a period of two years.

Soni also teased future updates, and while one of them should be the upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat at some point, you’ll have to make do with those camera improvements for now. The update should reach all users in the next few days, but while you wait, you can do a manual check from the Settings – About phone – System updates menu on your phone. Remember, the update will unroot your device and likely patch existing root exploits, so if root access matters to you, it would be best to wait for a newer exploit to come along before hitting that update button.
