First OnePlus 6T camera sample appears via CEO: Is it a low-light champ?
- OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has posted a photo taken with the OnePlus 6T.
- The photo shows a city at dusk, but it’s unclear if this was taken in auto or night mode.
- Little else is known about the camera experience, but we’ll find out more on October 29.
The Oneplus 6T launch event is around the corner, and we already have a good idea of what to expect from the phone. How its camera will handle is less certain, but OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has dished out a tantalizing glimpse of its capabilities on social media.
The executive published a photo sample on Weibo (h/t: GSMArena), showing a city at dusk/night. We don’t know if the photo was edited, while EXIF information isn’t available either. Nevertheless, the clouds and buildings seem well-realized. The sky isn’t noise-free though but, all in all, it seems like a good low-light snap. Check it out below (we’ve resized the image to fit the page):
It’s unclear whether this is the phone’s normal mode or a night mode as seen on the likes of Huawei‘s phones. In Huawei’s case, the night mode intelligently stacks and aligns multiple frames in order to reduce noise and simulate a long shutter speed. If this were taken via a normal/auto mode, however, it would make for a great demonstration of the setup’s light-gathering capabilities. But we won’t complain if this photo is the result of a night mode.
The OnePlus 6T is set for an October 29 reveal, and we already have a few confirmed details. The new phone will ship with Android Pie and an in-display fingerprint sensor, but will lack a headphone jack. Other expected features include a Snapdragon 845 chipset, dual-camera setup, and an OLED screen with a tiny notch.
