OnePlus reveals the first photo taken with the OnePlus 5

OnePlus reveals the first photo taken with the OnePlus 5
Not long after announcing that the upcoming OnePlus 5 will feature a main camera made in collaboration with DxO, OnePlus today revealed the very first (public) photo shot with said camera.

As you can see below, OnePlus posted two images on Twitter, asking fans to guess which of them was taken with the OnePlus 5

It only makes sense for the better looking image to be shot on the new phone - and that's certainly photo no. 2. photo no. 1 (on the left) looks murky, while the image on the right is cleaner, with more vibrant colors and finer details. Unfortunately, high-res versions of these images aren't available, but it's obvious what OnePlus wants to tell us here: the rear camera of the OnePlus 5 should be able to take really nice photos in challenging lighting conditions. Of course, we're eager to test this camera as soon as the upcoming handset is released.

Rumors have it that the rear camera of the OnePlus 5 will be a dual one - somewhat similar to the camera of the Apple iPhone 7 Plus (although it's not clear if this means that optical zoom will also be on board).
The OnePlus 5 will be officially announced and released later this summer. It's been confirmed that the handset has a fingerprint scanner on the front (just like OnePlus' previous phones), and is powered by Qualcomm's high-end Snapdragon 835 processor.  

If you're interested in the OnePlus 5, is its camera performance important to you? Or would you rather want OnePlus to concentrate more on improving other key features?

Oh man those colors are simply amazing. I bet it's gonna be a tough competition between op5 and pixel this year.

It definitely would've been better for OnePlus to use higher-resolution photos. Maybe posted the photo then linked to a higher resolution source. I'm still between this, the Moto X4, and potentially the Moto Z2 Play (but I'm leaning more towards the Moto X4 vs the Moto Z2 Play). Hope the OnePlus 5 is no more than $500. AT the most, and it's pushing it to me, no more than $550. I also hope that's the same price range for the Moto X4 and Z2 Play.

I feel you, bro. I'm looking forward to the Moto X4 myself. I like how Lenovo is using the Moto X4 to give the feel and functionality of a flagship without the cost. The fact that they're using a 600 series SoC is also a plus along with the lack of QHD on a 5.2" screen. I have the 3T, and the screen size is at the limits for how big I can use.

Yep, the typical yellow tint gives the iPhone away easily.

I don't know if it's just me, but I think I prefer the first photo's natural colors.

It's the same picture, just different masks applied. Cheap marketing.

OP5 is gonna kick some flagship ass! Only real useful flagship feature that's probably gonna be missed is water-proofing and that one is unfortunately a deal breaker for me...

I agree. I had wanted a water proof phone for years. Doesn't even need to be ip68, ip67/57 is fine for me. Since the Sony Z1 there's no turning back! Strictly waterproof since January 2014! I've lost a couple phones due to exposure to water. Including my Galaxy nexus back in the day :(
