Looking back at our forum activity, we’ve noticed a lot of discussion about the OnePlus One’s camera specs. Unlike other manufacturers, our aim is not to compete with DSLRs but to offer a portable product that performs well in real-life conditions (without an ugly protruding camera). That’s why our engineers and I reviewed a myriad of available camera solutions and tested them in real-life scenarios. After going through almost every single manufacturer and the latest models in the market, we felt that Sony offered the best wide-aperture sensors out there. We were confident that with the proper set of lenses and software optimization, our camera would take beautiful pictures in any situation. With Sony in mind, we chose their latest Exmor IMX214. This 13-megapixel CMOS sensor boasts an incredible f/2.0 aperture, so more light can be captured when shooting in the dark. Large apertures do come with a downside, namely that photos may become distorted on the edges. Regular smartphones have 5 lenses, but to properly correct for low aperture we added a 6th. Our unique 6 lens optics will avoid any low aperture distortion while also enhancing the image quality and colors. The OnePlus One will also let you to shoot 4K videos or, if you love slow-motion video, film at 120 fps with a 720p resolution. Of course we didn’t forget about the front facing camera. We added a 5 megapixel front shooter that will be your best friend during your video-calls and selfies. The OnePlus One aims for the best in both hardware and software. Using one of the best sensors in the market for our camera is just a way of expressing the “Never Settle” philosophy. Stay tuned for more shots taken with the OnePlus One!
