OnePlus One shows what its camera can do


We’ve got under a week to go before the OnePlus One launch event, but new details about the phone keep pouring in all the time. Already this week we’ve checked out a couple hardware leaks, got details on launch countries, and learned about the unusual invitation system OnePlus has elected to go with in order to manage sales of the smartphone. Today we add to the phone’s story with the arrival of some sample images showing the kind of shots capable with the handset’s 13MP Sony Exmor camera.

Earlier this year, OnePlus ran a photography contest in its forums, and about a week ago it announced the winners, shipping each of them a OnePlus One “Camera Test Unit” to play with. One of those winners has received his prize and is now sharing the pics he was able to grab with it.

Truthfully, we’re not 100% convinced just yet, noticing noise and saturation issues in some areas of the fully-enlarged shots, but focus seems sharp, and we’re generally pretty pleased with what we see here. The photographer comments, “lets just all erase any doubt about this camera now, its simply a joy to take photographs with.”

We also notice that despite the 13MP Sony sensor, at least one of these sample images weighs in at 50MP, suggesting we could be looking at an Oppo-Super-Zoom-style interpolation mode.

We’ve had to scale things down for presentation here (and crop for framing), but click on through to the source below to check out the full-res originals.
