While wide angle lens, monochrome lens are some of the tricks used by other smartphone makers, OnePlus will stick to one standard and one telephoto lens, the report said.
Coming to the specifications, both the cameras are Sony’s creation with the main camera sporting a resolution of 16-megapixel with f/1.7 aperture lens and the secondary camera comes with 20-megapixel resolution and a f/2.6 telephoto lens, it added.
The report further said that the company claims that OnePlus 5 camera is the highest resolution dual camera system on a smartphone.
OnePlus has tried to recreate the depth of field effect on the smartphone.
OnePlus has relied on the parent company, BBK Electronics’ Oppo brand to procure the necessary hardware and technology for integrating the dual-rear camera, the report said.
OnePlus 5 does not come with extremely slim bezels or curved display like some competitors and the company is relying on the camera power to help it stand out and emulate the success of previous OnePlus devices, it added.
"We were exploring dual cameras last year, but we knew the education cost would be too high. We have to thank Apple for educating the market for us,” the report said quoting Pete Lau as saying to The Verge.
“There are technologies that allow portrait mode with single camera,” the report said quoting OnePlus’ imaging director Simon Liu as saying.
“But at this point, the output is still not as good as those with [a] dual-camera module. Because the dual camera has a larger size, we found the camera bump would have been too large,” explains Liu.
