OnePlus 2 camera outed: 13-megapixel sensor and laser focusing

Official announcement still slated for 27 July

Not content with just announcing its next phone, OnePlus has given its OnePlus 2 to a YouTube star to show off its camera.

The OnePlus 2 is to get an official announcement on 27 July, but tech-obsessed YouTuber Marques Brownlee has posted a video showing off the new phone’s camera.

While the phone in the video is blurred-out, we have no reason to believe this is anything but legit.

Brownlee tells us the OnePlus 2 has a 13-megapixel camera with an f/2.0 lens and laser autofocus, a bit like the LG G3.

Will it kill the Samsung Galaxy S6? Probably not, but it looks like a pretty good camera for a phone that should come in a fair bit cheaper.

Quick focusing, good detail and much better exposure than something like the HTC One M9 leave us little to worry about, and the OnePlus 2 can also shoot video at 4K resolution. Rather like the OnePlus One, though, the HDR mode appears to be pretty ripe.

This camera leak joins a whole host of details OnePlus has already let out of the bag. These include a Snapdragon 810 CPU, 4GB RAM and 3300mAh battery.

The bits we don’t know yet are the screen’s stats. However, most rumours indicate it’ll have a 1080p display rather than a QHD one to go head-to-head with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4.
