The OnePlus 7 Pro is finally official and puts the bed the weeks of rumors and leaks showing off the company’s flagship for 2019. The device houses a brand new triple camera array for OnePlus that sees a 48-megapixel main sensor paired with a 16-megapixel ultrawide and 8-megapixel 3x telephoto zoom lens. While the camera on OnePlus devices has also been on the weaker side when compared to the competition, this setup has managed to snag a place on the podium of DxOMark ratings.
The lead spots of the DxOMark ratings currently are held by the Huawei P30 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, which both scored 112. The OnePlus 7 Pro scored an overall score of 111, which right off the bat, is an incredible achievement to rub bezels with these devices given the massive price difference.
The review of the camera performance shows the OnePlus 7 Pro has a wide dynamic range that preserves highlights and shadow details, while contrast is solid throughout all lighting conditions. Decreasing the lighting conditions results in loss of texture and increase in noise, which is expected. The device comes with its own portrait mode, which is almost standard on smartphones, but the OnePlus 7 Pro does a good job at estimating the depth and identifying the subject to apply a natural background blur.

Given the OnePlus 7 Pro starts at $669, the camera performance has been substantially improved over previous models and seems to be enough to compete with smartphones in a much higher price bracket. We’ll have our own review coming soon with our impressions of the camera but the DxOMark certainly makes for a promising prospect.
