OnePlus 5 camera samples leak, suggesting that one of the dual cameras will shoot in monochrome
However, the latest group of photographic samples reveals something different. This time, one of the images includes a picture taken in black and white. That could indicate that one of the dual cameras will shoot in monochrome (black and white). There was talk that a previous tweet released by OnePlus, which asked you to guess which half of a photo was shot by the OnePlus 5, indicated that OnePlus would use a monochrome sensor due to the sharp and detailed images it produces. The Huawei P9, introduced last year, uses a monochrome sensor to help the dual camera system detect lighting conditions better, allowing it to deliver more accurate photographs. It also allows P9 users to take black and white photos.
The source who leaked the three photos in this story, suggests that the OnePlus 5 rear cameras will weigh in at 16MP and feature an aperture of f/1.8. The current OnePlus model, the OnePlus 3T, offers a single 16MP snapper on both back and front. Both have an aperture of f /2.0.
