+Android users may soon see a series of new features on their devices' camera app.
Google is reportedly working on a major update to Android's camera app, which will include a new mode for taking portraits, as well as revamped panorama and Portrait Sphere modes.
The new portrait mode will allow users to shoot photos with a shallower depth of field, enabling the subject to appear in focus, while the background is blurred; this is similar to features built into the new HTC One.
Engadget reported that the update will include improvements to the way images are framed within the camera.
We're told that Google has finally fixed issues with the default camera's photo framing, allowing users to snap images with a new 100 percent no-crop viewfinder. That means you'll see exactly what your Android device will capture before you hit the shutter button, with no unwanted objects creeping in at the edges.
The update will also reportedly add improvements to the camera's existing panorama and Portrait Sphere modes, which will enhance image resolution. Third-party developers will also have the opportunity to develop filters that can be used within the camera.
