OnePlus 7 Pro camera samples have already made their way online

OnePlus will be officially announcing their OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro (and maybe the 5G model) in the coming weeks. We have to say that out of the two models, we are excited for the OnePlus 7 Pro because it feels like for the first time ever, OnePlus seems to be taking photography more seriously than before with the use of a triple lens camera design.

We suppose this can’t be helped given the stiff competition from Samsung, Huawei, and Oppo, but the question is, how good will the company’s efforts be? Thanks to the folks at WIRED, they managed to get their hands on an early production model of the upcoming handset and took several photos, testing out the camera in the process, namely the new 3x zoom lens.

Now based on WIRED’s initial testing, they found that while the 3x zoom lens on the OnePlus 7 Pro was an upgrade over the 2x zoom that was offered on previous models, it still seems to lack details and actually has more noise when compared to competing handsets like the Huawei P30 Pro. Interestingly enough, OnePlus imaging director Simon Liu seems to acknowledge that they might not be able to beat the competition.

“I think we have a shot at competing with the first tier phones. I don’t think we can beat them, but the imaging world is always subjective.”

We should point out that the model that WIRED managed to review is a pre-production model. This means that there is a chance the final model could be tweaked further (and maybe even for the better), so don’t take these image samples as being final.
