OnePlus Two camera details revealed by MKBHD

Youtuber MKBHD has his hands on the upcoming OnePlus Two smartphone and has been talking about the hardware while putting the camera through a test drive.

Published onJuly 15, 2015


With just two weeks left to the official unveiling, there are still a few details that OnePlus hasn’t revealed about its upcoming OnePlus Two handset. Camera specifications can now be ticked off the list, as prolific Youtuber MKBHD has been given one to take for a photography trail run.

Details reveal that the OnePlus Two’s camera will come with a 13 megapixel resolution and a maximum f/2.0 aperture, which falls just shy of some of the more expensive 2015 flagships. Sadly, there doesn’t appear to be any optical image stabilization, but the phone is making use of laser auto-focus technology to bring nearby objects into focus very quickly. We first saw this type of technology in a smartphone back with the LG G3.

As for image quality, initial testing suggests that the OnePlus Two shows a noticeable improvement over its predecessor. However, the phone still falls a way short of the very best camera tech on the market right now, such as the cameras found in the LG G4 and Samsung Galaxy S6.

That being said, OnePlus is apparently still working on the phone’s camera software, so there may still be some slight tweaks and improvements to image processing come the final release.

You can check out the hands on testing in the video below, which features a wide range of shots taken with the handset.

Other known details about the OnePlus Two include 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, a USB Type-C port, Snapdragon 810 processing package and a price tag that will fall under $450. Any thoughts on what we know about the handset so far?
