OnePlus founder publishes high-quality pictures taken with the OnePlus 6
OnePlus 6 is one of the hottest smartphones yet to be unveiled, even though we know quite a lot of things about the upcoming flagship. Naturally, since none of the details leaked until now have been confirmed by OnePlus (with few exceptions like *cough* the notch), every new teaser released could be a fountain of knowledge for those who know where to look.

In a not so surprising turn of events (because it happened before), OnePlus founder Pete Lau (Liu Zuohu) recently published some high-quality pictures taken with the upcoming OnePlus 6. The pictures published on Weibo show buildings and gardens from around Stanford, California.

At first glance, the pictures look pretty good, though we'll provide out final verdict only after we get to review the OnePlus 6. The 16-megapixel main camera seems to do a great job in optimal light, but we wouldn't expect otherwise from a flagship.

The OnePlus 6 is likely to be unveiled in early May. The smartphone is said to pack Qualcomm's newest chipset, the Snapdragon 845, coupled with either 6GB or 8GB RAM. A dual camera (16MP+20MP) will be included as well, along with a large display that features a notch on the top.

Yeah it's kind of hard to believe these pics came from a OnePlus phone

In these lighting conditions even 3 year old flagships would do great.

True but when you zoom in on the dark areas you can see all the sharp details and that's not normal with their old phones.

So because it's OnePlus they can never improve their cameras? Ok...

Only the building photo looked decent to me. The tree's have such blown out highlights and the Rose close up looked out of focus on its subject. Sucks, I was really digging the look of the One Plus 6, guess I'll just wait for the Pixel 3 now.

Looks just average .. and if it is really coming out of OP6 then the company has lot of scope for improvements .. I think; OnePlus (unknowingly) stopped innovation, camera enhancements, unique designs, new software features just after the 3T launch .. They themselves got busy into replicating the design of some popular phone :D

One plus should let vivo work on their camera algorithms.

Nothing to shout about for bright daytime shots (not even any HDR enhancements). Looks just like pics taken by my OP5

All photos taken during the day. I'd like to see some low light samples.
