OnePlus promises to step up its camera game
OnePlus phones aren't the best choice when it comes to photography. Barring a few exceptions, the cameras on OnePlus devices have consistently failed to impress the audience. CEO Pete Lau is well aware of that and he has said on Weibo that the company plans to invest more resources in camera development (via Android Authority).
The company hopes to ultimately deliver the best smartphone camera experience.
It remains to be seen if it will make good on the promise.
We say that because similar claims were made by Lau and the company’s product manager Zack Zhang back in 2019 after the outrage over the difference between OnePlus 7 Pro's real-life performance and DxOMark scores. Although its successor, the OnePlus 8 Pro was a notable improvement, the recently released OnePlus 8T's camera is underwhelming.
The OnePlus 9 will reportedly be equipped with a 48MP primary sensor, a 48MP ultra-wide-angle shooter, and an unspecified third sensor that appears unlikely to be a telephoto unit.
