OnePlus 5 camera samples leak, suggesting that one of the dual cameras will shoot in monochrome
New photographs have surfaced, claiming to be more camera samples from the upcoming OnePlus 5. We expect to see a dual camera setup on back of the phone, with a vertical placement. OnePlus is working in tandem with photography benchmark firm DxOMark to improve the cameras on the next flagship killer. In late April, a series of four photos taken in Shenzen, China, where OnePlus is headquartered, leaked. Said to have been shot with the OnePlus 5, this set of photographic samples contained a picture with a blurred background which supposedly indicated that the handset will have two rear cameras in order to produce the bokeh effect.

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.
