Today, OnePlus finally took the veils off their latest offering to the smartphone market, the OnePlus 2. This has been one of the most highly talked about and speculated upon devices of this year and with good reason. However, now the company has finished the launch, the speculation has ended and everything has now been confirmed, this includes what to expect from the camera on the OnePlus 2.

As far as the OnePlus One goes, the camera abilities on the One are one of the main features which has gained approval from the android community and the industry alike. The OnePlus One was one of the best camera-touting devices when it was released. In contrast, the changes included on the OnePlus 2 seem far less impacting on initial inspection, however, OnePlus state that the camera on offer will be a vast improvement over the One’s camera. In terms of the specifications, the OnePlus 2 comes touting a 13-megapixel rear camera which comes equipped with a OmniVision sensor as well as a dual LD flash and an f/2.o aperture. Additional features of the rear camera include making use of Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and also Laser Autofocus to offer a much clearer, quicker and accurate level of image focusing. According to OnePlus, the OnePlus 2 camera is made up of six physical lenses to further offer an enhanced and fuller image taking experience and lower the levels of distortion. In fact, one of the biggest features and upgrades of the rear camera is the sensor which contains 1.3 microns and is designed to purposely deliver much better shots in low-light. In fact, according to OnePlus, the low-light level of the rear camera was their focus for the OnePlus 2 and where the end user will notice the biggest improvements over the OnePlus One.

Likewise, on MP count, the front facing camera also does not immediately differ from the OnePlus One, with the OnePlus 2 sporting a 5-megapixel front facing camera. However, this is wide-lens front facing camera and is designed to maximise the level of capture for front facing images. In addition, OnePlus has said that the OS running on the OnePlus 2, Oxygen OS comes with a number of designed tweaks to offer a much more end user-friendly camera experience.
