OnePlus had introduced its flagship series quite recently, and has praised the camera performance of the OnePlus 7 Pro during the announcement. Well, it seems like some users are not exactly pleased with the phone’s camera performance, as the company received a lot of negative comments, and users are not exactly convinced the camera is living up to its 111 DxOMark score.
That being said, a member of the company’s OxygenOS team known as Jimmy Z., decided to respond to all of those comments in the company’s forums. He shared a rather lengthy reply, saying that he read every single comment that was posted, while he not only promised that the company is working on improving the camera, but he also promised that an update is coming soon.
Jimmy Z. said that the OnePlus 7 Pro will receive a new update “in a week or so”, while sharing that the update contains improvements for HDR and Nightscape 2.0 performance. He claims that the company has been testing this update for a while, and that they are more than happy with the results, claiming that photos look “substantially better”.
In addition to that, he said that the company is working on further improvements, but that it needs more time for testing before any of those additional tweaks make their way to consumers. Jimmy Z. said that camera quality is quite subjective, basically saying that the OnePlus 7 Pro’s initial camera performance is quite good, but that the company is doing its best to tweak it to wishes of consumers.
The OnePlus 7 Pro actually comes with quite a compelling camera hardware. The device includes three cameras on the back, and a selfie pop-up camera on the front. On the back you’ll find 48-megapixel (main sensor), 16-megapixel (ultrawide lens), and 8-megapixel (telephoto, 3x optical zoom) cameras.
All in all, the phone’s hardware is not a problem, as those are all quite compelling sensors, and the phone’s camera is quite good as it is, but it can be vastly improved via software updates, which is what the company is trying to do, it seems.
The OnePlus 7 Pro launched alongside a smaller brother, the OnePlus 7. The two phones do share some of the specs, but they look considerably different, and the OnePlus 7 Pro is the more powerful of the two.
Both devices include stereo speakers, and UFS 3.0 storage. Both devices ship with Android 9 Pie, and OnePlus’ OxygenOS 9.5 on top of it, while they are fueled by the Snapdragon 855 64-bit octa-core processor.
The OnePlus 7 Pro does include a larger display, a 6.67-inch QHD+ curved Fluid AMOLED display, with 90Hz refresh rate, and HDR10+ certification. A 4,000mAh battery is also included in the package, while the device supports 30W Warp Charge fast charging. The OnePlus 7, on the other hand, supports 20W fast charging, and it ships with the same display that was included in the OnePlus 6T, a 6.41-inch fullHD+ Optic AMOLED panel.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is available for purchase from OnePlus as we speak, in a number of regions, while the OnePlus 7 will go on sale at the beginning of June.
