Is this the first picture from the OnePlus 2 to be shared on social media? (UPDATE)
UPDATE: Mr. Brownlee released a YouTube video on Tuesday evening with some of the pictures he shot allegedly using the rear camera on the OnePlus 2; some of these photographs can be found in the slideshow below, including a comparison image that shows how well the OnePlus Clear View feature works on the new phone.

The OnePlus 2 will be officially introduced on July 27th using Virtual Reality. OnePlus sent out tons of Google Cardboard VR viewers that only cost $5 for shipping. The festivities kick off at 10pm EDT on the 27th. OnePlus has been teasing some of the specs on the new phone, such as a fingerprint scanner, a larger battery (but a smaller footprint), a full metal build, 4GB of RAM, and the inclusion of the Snapdragon 810 SoC. The phone is said to be priced under $450 USD.

Today, the first picture from the OnePlus 2's rear camera to be published on social media came from Marques Brownlee who received an advance unit of the OnePlus 2 and posted this picture on his Google+ page. The resolution of the photo is 4160×3120, which would indicate that the back camera is 13MP. The aperture of the camera that took the photo is f/2.0, meaning that the OnePlus camera should be able to take decent snapshots even under less than optimal lighting conditions.

Considering the surprising success of the OnePlus One (nearly one million units were sold), there are many smartphone buyers out there anxious to see what the sequel will bring. Just keep in mind that the data that accompanies the image below can be faked. For that reason, we suggest taking this story with the proverbial grain of salt.


Thanks for the tip!

13 MP, f/2.0. Sounds like IMX214 to me.

so same camera as the one. Its not a bad lens by any means, mine takes fantastic pics but i think Oneplus needs to play around with their camera software a bit

LG did with that with the G2 -> G3 They also added laser AF But I don't think the OnePlus 2's camera will be as good as the S6/G4 Software can only do so much

Here's MKBHD's video on ithttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDiOv9148gc Looks like no OIS, or very poor OIS

MKBHD already got the One +2. He is the man :)

8. TyrionLannister unregistered

Almost all the reviewers have the 1+2. It's just the embargo isn't lifted yet.

I highly doubt that. Otherwise they would have teased a little.

12. TyrionLannister unregistered

Usually they have the units before the day. But they don't tease. All the reviewers had the One M9 a day before launch, but they weren't allowed to post anything before the event. MKBHD is just experimenting on how far can he go without breaking the rules.

You don't think it is oneplus encouraging him to do this?

Usually breaking embargo/NDAs mean the company will never send you any goods again So I think MKBHD has permission from OnePlus, since he's giving them lots of marketing

IMX214...240 maybe

21. TyrionLannister unregistered

It's not 240 for sure. 240 is a 16 MP 16:9 sensor. This is a 13 MP 4:3 photo.

unimpressive photo

IMX214 already used on the Oneplus 1 and Nexus 6. I don't think they use the same sensor for the next generation. Or they could :D

Just release the phone NOW!!! Let fans have their virtual reality whatever on the 27th. The $250 price tag for the One is an awesome buy and i want to know if it is worth buying the Two or not.
