OnePlus today confirmed that its upcoming ‘One’ smartphone will be fitted with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera. One Plus founder and chief executive Pete Lau, formerly an executive at Oppo, confirmed his company would be using the Sony Exmor IMX214 CMOS sensor.
In a forum post, he explained the rationale behind this particular component: “After going through almost every single manufacturer and the latest models in the market, we felt that Sony offered the best wide-aperture sensors out there. We were confident that with the proper set of lenses and software optimization, our camera would take beautiful pictures in any situation.”
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
The sensor offers an f/2.0 aperture, 4K video recording and 720p slow-motion footage at 120 frames per second (FPS). Lau said the team has added a sixth lens to the handset – many other smartphones come with five – to compensate for the distorted edges that often plague low aperture sensors. The front-facing camera, meanwhile, is a 5-megapixel offering.
