The OnePlus One is shaping up to be quite the phone with each and every passing day. Pete Lau continues OnePlus’s onslaught of information with details about the camera sensor, which has been revealed to be Sony’s 13-megapixel Exmor IMX214 module. This is an f/2.0 element that has been custom-fit with six lens pieces to provide great low-light performance, color and sharpness without having to deal with visual distortion at the edges of photos.

Furthermore, the sensor will have optical image stabilization, can shoot 4K video, and can shoot 120fps slow motion video at 720p HD resolution. We also learn OnePlus has decided to add a 5 megapixel camera to the front, which should definitely suffice for the purpose of holding video calls and taking those all-important selfies.

Previous specs outed to date have been the Snapdragon 800 processor, as well as the device’s 5.5-inch 1080p HD display. We also know that the device will house a nice 3,100mAh battery. OnePlus also revealed a feature that will allow you to use voice commands without having to touch the device.

Unfortunately we have yet to see any shots of the device itself, though some newly leaked sketches over the weekend give us a taste of what we could expect once Pete Lau and company are finally ready and confident enough to show it off.

We weren’t sure what sort of device we could expect after hearing OnePlus had a price tag of under $400 in mind, but this thing is shaping up to be quite the monster that we wouldn’t mind dropping that much money for.
