Leaked photo samples allegedly were taken with the OnePlus 5
by Alan Friedman / Apr 30, 2017, 1:15 PM
If you look at the blurring in the second photo, it suggests that rumors about a dual camera setup on the back of the OnePlus 5 are true. One person said to be knowledgeable about photography says that by looking at the pictures and the data, the next OnePlus handset could feature dual 16MP cameras. He says that one of the snappers will be taking wide angle photos in order to capture more depth information.
The OnePlus 5 is expected to be equipped with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 835 chipset is said to be under the hood, carrying an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. 8GB of RAM could be inside, along with 64GB/128GB of native storage. A 4000mAh battery is expected to be in charge of keeping the lights on, and OxygenOS should be found running on top of Android 7.1.1.
We want to point out a couple of things here. EXIF data can be faked. Secondly, we do suggest that you take this story with a grain of salt. While we do expect a OnePlus 5 to eventually be unveiled, whether these photos are from such a device is another story altogether. Check out the photos by clicking on the slideshow below.
- Display 5.5" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 16 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2457 MHz
- Storage 128 GB
- Battery 3300 mAh
It seems(considering this leak is true) they are going to use the same sensor as the OP3 and just add a dual sensor. This will be highly disappointing since my OP3 photos are dogs**t in low light. My older GS6 was better and the S7/pixel absolutely destroys it. Just hoping the 1080p screen and 4000 mAh are true though. That along with SD835 will make for a truly long lasting device.

Oneplus should be adding Daydream support for its next flagship, since the Axon 7 has it. Therefore the resolution needs to be 1440p, atleast. However, a slider to change the resolution must also be present in settings, just like the Galaxy S8.

The slider does nothing to enhance battery life as has been debunked multiple times. The panel is still 1440p and all the pixels will still be lit even if you change it to 1080p or 720p. The only difference is the 2D rendering the GPU has to rasterize, which isn't a huge factor in battery life, unless you are gaming. Daydream is useless. There are almost no apps which support it and 1440p still causes screen-door effect, especially with penTile screens. Get a proper VR headset like Rift or Vive if you really want VR. Don't spoil my phone and let it do phone things well, rather than gimmicks.

Oh yeah, that much difference is expected, especially if you visit webGL heavy sites or play games on your phone. However, 720p looks s**t. I visited the local store yesterday to check out the S8. The display looked like crap. Found out it was running at 720p. Changed it to WQHD+, much much better. The ideal solution is to run at 1080p. The resolution is sharp enough, battery is around 10-15 min more SoT and UI is smoother.

You obviously dont know the advantages of mobile VR do you? Hassle free, easy use, no wires, no beafy PC needed, not bound to only one location. And it's not only about the resolution, but also about low persistzence which you dont get with LCD displays and a higher refresh rate than 60Hz would be nice.

I mean.. You get what you pay for. I was gonna buy the oneplus 5 but camera is important to me so i might go for the htc 11 or huawei mate 10, i would consider the note 8 Google pixel and nokia 9 but they're gonna have the weird new aspect ratio that i really hate

I have an htc 10 and I don't really get why are you saying that they always cheap out on components. It's true htc has serious financial problems and in order to survive they should save up some cash but apart from the eMMC storage ( which in some cases was faster than the UFS 2.0), 10 has every flagship-grade hardware and even better&expensive camera sensor compared to the galaxy s7 edge.

"My $800 phone was way better than my $300 phone at taking pictures!!"

if they can optimize it better i dont have an issue with it. lg uses the same sensor in the v20 and its killer. or perhaps theyll use the IMX398 with Dual Pixel AF.

The v20 camera is considered killer due to the dual camera. Also LG uses much better algorithms and OIS modules compared to oneplus. V20 and G6 still came compete with s7 and Pixel in low light. They have to either crank the ISO or have a much longer shutter speed to get same amount of light.

They should really upgrade to a QHD panel already, I would gladly pay more.
