The AI powered camera will able to compete with the Galaxy S9 manual aperture camera
OnePlus will be launching its OnePlus 6 flagship in China on May 17. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer will also be introducing an Avengers Infinity War Special Edition of the smartphone. The smartphone appeared a few weeks ago in TENAA revealing its specs. Ahead of its launch, the company teased an image on Chinese media platform Weibo revealing the AI capabilities for the front and rear cameras.
The OnePlus 6 is expected to come with dual camera setup on the rear with a 20 MP +16 MP configuration. The sample pictures were shared by the company’s CEO Pete Lau last month on Weibo. The OnePlus smartphone cameras have a good reputation in the optics department, and this time also cameras capture good detail and rich colours. The company also posted some images via its Twitter handle @Oneplus alongside the caption “The OnePlus 6 Dual Camera takes on the iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9, and Google Pixel 2”.
According to the rumours, the primary 20 MP camera sensor will have a f/1.7 aperture with support from the 16 MP telephoto lens. The cameras will come with regular features like OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation), portrait mode and slow-motion video. The image doesn’t provide any other information about the front 20 MP camera, but it confirms the May 17 launch from 10 AM.
Another report from Winfuture.de states that the OnePlus 6 flagship was found listed on Amazon Germany, but it will be launched there on May 22. It mentions the Mirror Black, and Midnight Black colour options but misses out Coral blue and White which were mentioned in previous leaks. Also, there is also no mention of the Avengers Infinity War Special Edition which will be launched the same day as the regular variant.
As for the availability, the company will be launching the smartphone in India on the same day. The Winfuture.de report further revealed the price of 64 GB and 128 GB to be EUR 519 (roughly Rs. 41,800) and EUR 569 (roughly Rs. 45,800) respectively. It is also rumoured that the 256 GB will eventually be launched in India.
