Throwing even more coal into their hype train’s furnace, the folks at OnePlus are now (officially) showing off the photo capabilities of their upcoming handset, the OnePlus One. Taken by OnePlus forum member Martin Mal, the images show, not only an impressive amount of detail, but a healthy helping of bokeh as well. This is actually the second time photos from the handset have “leaked,” the first time showing a few snapshots that weren’t in their full resolution.
First thing you may notice is these are actually 50MP images, delivering an output of 8,160×6,120 resolution and weighing about 10MB in size. We’re guessing the phone is employing a similar feature to that of the Oppo Find 7 — especially after the most recent leak — that allows the phone to piece together 8MP images into a single 50MP shot. If you look at the HDR image here, it’s shot in a more typical 4,160×3,120 (13MP) resolution at only 3MB in size.
Once again, the depth of field is incredibly impressive from a smartphone standpoint, especially considering it doesn’t appear to be the typical software tricks we’ve seen from HTC or Samsung. Not bad, OnePlus. Not bad at all. We know how much importance some of you place on your smartphone cameras, making the OnePlus One’s low $400 price point sound even more attractive. We can’t wait for the phone to be unveiled, even if you’ll need an invite to purchase one at launch.
