General Mobile just sent us a few sample photos shot with its upcoming DSTL1 smartphone. The DSTL1 sports a 5 megapixel autofocus camera that is made by Sony. The images the company sent us are not too exciting, but you can get a feel for what to expect from a production device.
The colors look pretty reasonable in the 3 outdoor shots, and sharpness is nice. It’s hard to tell if the bokeh in the background out of focus detail is real, or an after-effect of some sort of digital processing. In either event, it’s not unattractive at all to my eyes. We had to reduce the size of the images to 75% for our system to process them properly, but I’ve included one original size crop so that you can get an idea of what they look like at full resolution.
We’re also included two shots of the back of the phone that we hadn’t seen before.
