First off, you'll get support for RAW photo format. A RAW image file contains a minimum amount of processed data from your smartphone's image sensor. This means that you can opt to produce camera outputs in its most untouched state.

You'll also be happy to know that more bloatwares have been removed like the Auto-Start Manager, Mobile Manager, etc. Plus, Google Now and Google Assistant are even more engaged in your system with their addition to the ZenUI launcher.

Another noteworthy addition is a feature in Portrait Mode which now uses both cameras to provide depth or Bokeh effect.

Here's the changelog:

  • Android N
  • RAW file capture support
  • Portrait Mode as one of the camera modes, uses both cameras to sense depth and blur the background
  • Google Now and Google Assistant built-in to ZenUI launcher
  • No more Mobile Manager, Auto-Start Manager, and Splendid notifications
  • Removed all third party apps for the leanest ZenUI ever
  • The top row of Quick Settings icons was previously locked to pre-selected options. Users can now put any quick setting

To invoke the 1.1GB update, you can head over Settings > About > System Update.
