MKBHD publishes a series of photos taken with the 13 MP camera from the upcoming OnePlus 2. The main camera comes with f/2.0 lenses and laser autofocus.

As revealed during an AMA session on Reddit, YouTube reviewer MKBHD received the opportunity to test the built-in camera on the upcoming OnePlus 2 before its official reveal on July 27. According to the published images, the rear camera will be a 13 MP sensor similar to the original OnePlus One. Its maximum aperture of f/2.0 appears to have carried over as well.

A new feature of the smartphone is its laser autofocus. Presented snapshots have a native resolution of 4160 x 3120 pixels and have not been edited according to the source. Other notes include an ISO 100 setting and a focal length of 4.48 mm. However, until the OnePlus 2 is officially revealed, such information should be taken with a healthy dose of skepticism as the EXIF header of the images could have been manipulated.

The published photo samples compare the main cameras between the Galaxy S6, iPhone 6 Plus, LG G4, OnePlus One, and OnePlus 2. While pictures from the other candidates have a slightly yellow (OnePlus One) or Blue (Galaxy S6, iPhone 6 Plus, LG G4) tinge, the OnePlus 2 appears to have more natural colors and is able to show more details and structure of the surface of a tree.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
