OnePlus has introduced a new feature called NightScape for its latest flagship, the 6T. It is intended to improve on low-light photography for the phone. The 6T also includes re=imagined portrait shots, as a result of a partnership with Kevin Abosch.

OnePlus has unveiled its latest smartphone, the 6T, at an event on October 29 in New York. This phone offers some relatively new innovations such as Screen Unlock, an optical in-display fingerprint scanner. It also comes with a 16+20MP f/1.7 dual rear camera, which is not an improvement over the OnePlus 6. However, the company claims that its ability to take pictures under certain conditions has been improved.

These conditions are mainly night-time and low-light shots, which, as a company representative conceded during the launch, left a lot to be desired for many 6 owners. This has been addressed with NightScape, a form of processing that may get more light and detail into the images. OnePlus claims to have developed the algorithms behind this new feature. 

OnePlus also partnered with renowned portrait photographer Kevin Abosch to overhaul portrait shots taken with the 6T. Abosch claimed that these pictures will be enhanced in terms of optimal light and detail when captured using the phone. 

This sounds like something OnePlus fans with older hardware will miss out on. However, the company also announced that NightScape is also coming to this phone in a future software upgrade. It remains to be seen if this adaptation could make the 6 or 6T more competitive with the likes of the Pixel 3 series when the lights go down.
