OnePlus One to feature a 13 megapixel camera

OnePlus One

The folks at OnePlus have been periodically dropping hints about the hardware of its upcoming smartphone, known as the One. The manufacturer did the same today as it revealed the camera sensor being used on the smartphone and we’re not disappointed. A 13 megapixel camera will reportedly be used in the OnePlus One, more specifically known as the Exmor IMX214 which is made by Sony. This sensor will be capable of shooting 4K video and slow motion 720p video at 120 fps. On the front, the handset will feature a 5 megapixel camera sensor which should please selfie lovers.

The makers claim that this is “a portable product that performs well in real-life conditions (without an ugly protruding camera),” clearly pointing fingers at Samsung and its flagships. The camera will be reportedly accompanied by a unique 6 lens setup which will make it stand out from the competition – “Our unique 6 lens optics will avoid any low aperture distortion while also enhancing the image quality and colors.”

This in addition to the 5.5 inch 1080p display, the Snapdragon 800 chipset and the 3,100 mAh battery with software optimization certainly sounds like a very interesting combination.

Are you looking forward to buying one?

  1. A 5 mp front cam is a great improvement. Selfies would even become better I guess.
    But I think everyone including Google is not really doing something new here as other makers are also doing the same thing when it comes to phone cams–upping the numbers.

  2. The higher the mp figure the better the output when a picture is blown up but if you’re the type that mostly appreciates images in tablets or mobiles, this number doesn’t matter much.

  3. Correct me if I am wrong but I thought the Galaxy Nexus also had the same type of camera? What are the most differences between the two?

  4. Oh wow, a 5 meg camera on the front? That blows most of the other current smartphones out of the water. I think the best front facing camera I have seen yet is just 2 megs.

  5. Sound great. I really want to see it have a 16MP camera, though. Samsung’s S5 has one, and it really makes a difference in clarity.
