It’s getting heated out there with the rumors and hype about OnePlus’ upcoming smartphone, OnePlus 2. After the huge success of OnePlus One, everyone curious about the smartphone world is patiently waiting to see what OnePlus comes with in its second generation smartphone.
One key area that the company has been focusing on in recent times is the camera of the new phone. A few popular YouTube channels, including MKBHD, have reviewed the device’s camera and compared it to some of the top-tier smartphones. Today, OnePlus CEO Peter Lau has uploaded a bunch of new camera samples comparing them to Samsung Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6.
The pictures were uploaded to the forum of OnePlus. Here’s the first round of pictures that are shot to compare with the camera of Galaxy S6. These shots are zoomed 100% to show you the sharpness of the pictures. The pictures on the left side were taken by the OnePlus 2 while the pictures on the right were taken by Samsung Galaxy S6.
While the first batch of pictures were taken to show the differences in sharpness, the second batch of pictures were taken to show the low light capability of OnePlus 2’s camera and how it compares to that of iPhone 6. Again, the pictures on the left were taken by the camera of OnePlus 2 while the pictures on the right are from iPhone 6.
As far as we’re aware up to this point, the camera of OnePlus 2 has a maximum aperture of f/2.0 and is a 13-megapixel shooter. The wide maximum aperture of the camera allows it to shoot better low light pictures as you can see in the comparison above. It also puts the device in the same league with the big boys in terms of camera performance. Hardware-wise, the phone is said to pack a Snapdragon 810 processor, 4 GB RAM, a USB Type-C port along with a fingerprint scanner.
