OnePlus 5 dual-cameras with iPhone 7 Plus like ‘Portrait’ mode leaked ahead of official launch

OnePlus 5 camera is expected to heavily borrow features from Apple iPhone 7 Plus.

OnePlus 5 seems to have taken over the smartphone world. The smartphone has leaked countless times now and honestly, there’s just about nothing left a mystery. With just a few hours to go for the global launch (and a couple of days for the Indian), details about the smartphone are emerging clearly, instead of just in speculations. During the India-Pakistan ICC World Championship final match, the OnePlus 5 advert showed the phone in all its glory, detailing the design.

And now, that the design of the smartphone is already known, the focus has shifted to the camera. OnePlus 5 has long since been rumored to come with a dual-rear camera, something that the recent advertisement and multiple OnePlus teasers have confirmed. OnePlus seems to have taken inspiration from Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus, not only in terms of design and placement but also the functioning. While dual rear camera devices are not new to the market, but the OnePlus 5 aims to be slightly different from the rest and instead focus only on specific aspects.

A report on The Verge has detailed the camera features of the OnePlus 5 and the phone will focus entirely on creating the ‘Bokeh’ effect in Portrait mode, a feature made popular by Apple. While wide angle lens, monochrome lens are some of the tricks used by other smartphone makers, OnePlus will stick to one standard and one telephoto lens. Coming to the specifications, both the cameras are Sony’s creation with the main camera sporting a resolution of 16-megapixel with f/1.7 aperture lens and the secondary camera comes with 20-megapixel resolution and a f/2.6 telephoto lens.

OnePlus has harped on numbers with the OnePlus 5 and claims that the OnePlus 5 camera is the highest resolution dual camera system on a smartphone. OnePlus has tried to recreate the depth of field effect on the smartphone. A second feature of the telephoto lens is the ability to take close-up images or zoom into the subject without having to crop the background. OnePlus has relied on the parent company, BBK Electronics’ Oppo brand to procure the necessary hardware and technology for integrating the dual-rear camera.

OnePlus 5 is relying on the camera power to help it stand out and emulate the success of previous OnePlus devices. The smartphone does not come with extremely slim bezels or curved display like some competitors. The hardware and the camera are what OnePlus has focused on. With the entire focus on the camera, OnePlus is expected to be relatively more expensive. One of the strengths of the brand was providing a phone with strong hardware for a relatively lower price – something OnePlus 5 will undo.

Pete Lau, in his in-depth discussion with The Verge mentioned, “We were exploring dual cameras last year, but we knew the education cost would be too high. We have to thank Apple for educating the market for us.” Talking about the camera, “There are technologies that allow portrait mode with single camera,” says OnePlus imaging director, Simon Liu. “But at this point, the output is still not as good as those with [a] dual-camera module. Because the dual camera has a larger size, we found the camera bump would have been too large,” explains Liu. “To reduce the thickness we have to find another location, which was the upper left side of the phone.”

OnePlus 5 specifications and features

From what we know so far, the OnePlus 5 will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC. It is expected to come with 6GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage. Rumors also point at 8GB RAM + 128GB variant. Up front, a 16-megapixel selfie camera is expected. The smartphone is expected to run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box. However, other details such as battery capacity and other features are scrce at the moment.
