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.
You can view the photography samples in the slideshow below.

This. All i've heared from them is talking and bragging. I really hope they deliver tbh. They'll most likely nail the ui, battery, processor, design, price, but will they nail the camera and have a unique feature that sets it apart? Btw, i heard that the oneplus 5 will charge from 0 to 100 in 30 mins. Saw it on slashleaks today. Highly doubtful though. Otherwise, that will be the biggest single innovation in years.

I don't know but at a friend of mine's place, I have seen 1+3(not 1+3T though, but both of them should have similar build quality) and I was not sold on this. It didn't feel as solid as even an HTC One A9, forget Pixel/iPhones 6/6S/7 or the HTC One M series, I usually dont consider the Meizu's, the Oppo's and the Vivo's so I can't compare this with them. I can say that it appeared good from a distance but it felt quite hollow in hand. So to conclude though, I will have to say that, as per me, the HTC One M7 is still the best looking phone ever followed the glass built Galaxies - the S and the A series. Metal designs have begun to get boring haven't they? Things like these can be subjective and it could just be me and people around me that could have felt so.

In otherwords the camera might be meh. I've never seeing a monochrome sensor outdoing other cameras. Infact, i dont even see its advantages tbh. Its either you put in a feature packed dual camera like optical zoom, portrait mode, AR, wide angle lens or put in a very capable single shooter. Anyway, Its gonna be between the iphone 8, or the v30 for me.

Actually, having a monochrome sensor is quite useful. Here is a quote from another article explaining the benefits: "Just before the light reaches the sensor it passes through a colour filter that organises the light into red, green and blue streams. Here’s where the issue arises: in order to isolate green, red and blue light has to be discarded. Camera sensors waste light even though it’s their currency. This is where the monochrome sensor steps in. As it doesn’t need to discern colours, it can use more of the light coming its way to make each pixel of the final image. This leads to better sensitivity, meaning superior low-light photos, and better dynamic range with day-time shots."

I disagree. Huawei phones take excellent stills. Have you noticed how they're left out of most camera comparisons? Maybe because no us availability. Coupled with great image processing it could boost low light performance significantly and that is where the 3t fell down. Also hope video improves.

Yeah that's probably not happening. The OnePlus 3 charges from 0-80% in 40 Minutes, so I would not be surprised if the 5 can charge from 0-80% in 30 Minutes with Dash Charge 2.0 (Possibly 25 Watts). They could always surprised us and implement Super VOOC, but otherwise I doubt more. Phones will always charge more slowly from 80-100% by design, and that's unavoidable.

A secondary monochrome sensor, absolute waste in mobile photography..!!!

I do not see monochrome sensors on mobile phones being anywhere near useless... To each his own, however.

looking at the photos at 100% zoomed in, you can clearly see how the lens system was made of low quality materials the details are mushy and distortion at the edges of the objects are visible this is also what happened with most older sony phones
