The OnePlus 7 Pro hits the big time in DxOMark's camera tests
The OEM OnePlus has just unveiled its latest line of flagships. It was dominated with details on the 7 Pro, the flagship of this new series. Its maker has kitted it out with a quad HD+ screen for the first time. It has numerous bells and whistles that may help it compete with the Samsung Galaxy S10 series - which, like the 7 Pro, also has a 5G variant.
OnePlus has made an effort at stepping to the big kids with the 7 Pro's rear camera as well. It is the almost-inevitable triple module, one of which is a Sony IMX 586 sensor. This 48MP main shooter does not have anything like a fancy RYYB configuration; however, the OEM claims that its new pixel-binning adaptations enhance it greatly, compared to the OnePlus 6T at least. It also has a plastic 7-lens system for advanced clarity, as well as optical image stabilization (OIS).
The 8MP telephoto sensor has 3X zoom, as indicated in previous intriguing leaks. It also has OIS and an f-value of 2.4. These modules are joined by a 16MP lens with a 117⁰ field of view. OnePlus claims to have chosen this configuration as it approaches the maximum view-field of the human eye.
The complete triple camera is augmented with 3 types of focus: laser-autofocus (AF), continuous AF and phase-detection AF. It also has UltraShot and Nightscape 2.0, OnePlus' probable answers to Google's Top Shot and Night Sight respectively.
This set-up has earned the 7 Pro a total score of 111 from DxOMark, which is made up from a score of 118 and 98 in terms of photography and videography capabilities respectively. That achievement gives it a technical 2nd place in the overall camera rankings, behind the Huawei P30 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, currently tied for #1. However, further review with different approaches may give an alternative perspective on the 7 Pro's apparent new prowess. Stay tuned for our own take on the latest triple camera of 2019.
