First camera samples from the OnePlus One appear

First camera samples from the OnePlus One appear
UPDATE: Kang Yi, the face of China's Renmin University, is the gift that keeps on giving with her OnePlus One handset, and has uploaded a bunch of new unretouched pictures from the phone on her Weibo account. Check them out below, as there are night shots, closeups, and, of course, selfies. Also, we've got a full-size official indoor sample with a preproduction OnePlus One from one of its developers - Carl Pei.

The Cyanogen-laden OnePlus One will be officially announced later this month, on April 23, but we are already having the first alleged camera samples from it. The phone is expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC - an 8974-AC model that’s clocked at 2.45 GHz. This is the same SoC that’s used by Samsung for its new Galaxy S5 flagship, but the One+ handset comes with 3 GB of RAM, compared to the 2 GB in the S5.
As we mentioned, the OnePlus One will run a customized variant of CyanogenMod 11, and flaunts a 5.5" 1080p display, 13 MP rear camera with Sony sensor, and a 3,100 mAh battery. Not bad at all for the unlocked price of less than $400 (or €350 in Europe). 

Now, we all know how a Snapdragon 801 performs, and how a 5.5" 1080p display looks like, but what about the camera? Well, if the shots below are indeed from the OnePlus One, as Kang Yi, the face of China's Renmin University claims, the 13 MP shooter will be up to the task, it seems. Be patient with the second photo, as it is a full-size sample, with EXIF data and everything, so it might take a while to load.

OnePlus guys said that camera software hasn't been completely optimised yet and she could be an amateur in taking photos (indicates the use of Auto mode?). I guess camera on the retail unit is gonna be great!

Lets be honest, Oppo 7 13MP camera which is able to stitch together multiple shots to make a 50MP like photo is better than this 13MP camera... And i guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. O.o

This phone seems to good for that price.

I'm skeptical. Those shots fall on the "too good to be a cell phone" category. Well, gotta wait until a proper review gets released to see whether it was all made up, or if the camera is that good. It'll be an Exmor sensor, I know, but still... BTW, that girl is cute.
