In Short: According to a new report, the OnePlus 6T will ship with a dedicated ‘Night Mode’ in its camera application. This information comes from a website called ‘TrueTech’, and the site claims that the info has been provided by “an official OnePlus representative”. In any case, take this info with a grain of salt, but if it’s true, you will find a dedicated night mode in the camera app which should help boost the phone’s low light picture-taking capabilities, it should brighten up the images, and reduce noise in them. That is more or less all the info that the source shared on the matter, details regarding this new mode were not revealed, other than the fact that it will be a combination of hardware and software which will deliver better low light results, though that is understandable, as that is always the case, so it’s pretty much stating the obvious.
Background: As many of you already know, the OnePlus 6T will become official on October 30, as the company is hosting a press event in New York City. The phone will go on sale on November 6 for most regions out there, and we already have plenty of info when it comes to this smartphone. The company has confirmed that the OnePlus 6T will sport an optical in-display fingerprint scanner, while it will come with a ‘teardrop’ display notch, which will be considerably smaller than the one included in the OnePlus 6. The phone will ship with a 3,700mAh battery, according to rumors, while the company already confirmed that the device will ship with improved camera capabilities, and a “brand new UI”. OnePlus will also add some new gestures to its gesture-based navigation offering, and Android 9 Pie will ship out of the box on the device. The OnePlus 6T will include the very same processor as the OnePlus 6, we’re looking at the Snapdragon 845 64-bit octa-core SoC here, while the phone will likely ship in both 6GB and 8GB RAM variants. OnePlus’ proprietary fast charging will be included in the package, while the device will include two cameras on the back.
Impact: We have seen a dedicated night mode in a number of camera applications out there, and the latest company to make a big deal out of it was Google, as the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL come with the so-called ‘Night Sight’ mode. It remains to be seen what will OnePlus’ implementation look like, in other words, what will the company do in order to boost the performance of the OnePlus 6T’s camera in low light, but a dedicated night mode will hopefully help with that. It seems like the company is planning to improve the quality of the OnePlus 6T’s camera quite a bit compared to the OnePlus 6, though the OnePlus 6 was quite a solid camera smartphone in its own right, though it was certainly not the best out there, so it remains to be seen how will the OnePlus 6T compare to it.
