The OnePlus One is expected to be an affordable device with a price tag under $400 USD, but that doesn’t mean it will skimp on specs. In fact, according to the latest info provided by OnePlus itself, the One will feature top of the line specs that rival devices like the HTC One (M8) and the Samsung Galaxy S5. With a Snapdragon 801, 3GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel camera, it’s pretty damn high-end.
However, the camera’s megapixel count means little when it comes to photo quality. Software, optimization and the quality of the lenses make or break a camera. And with the OnePlus One’s sub-$400 price tag, I can’t lie: I’ve been worried. Would it suffer the same fate as the Nexus devices and their cameras? Well thanks to some leaked photo samples from the OnePlus One, we’re confident in saying that won’t be the case.
The 13-megapixel sensor inside the OnePlus One isn’t all that special, but the f/2.0 aperture and the six-lens array are fairly unique. This combo results in photos that are sharp, colorful and very pleasant. The resolution is somewhat low, so we can’t judge the detail as much, but these samples make us a little more excited to see the One. There’s only 12 more days left until the announcement; are you excited?
