OnePlus 5 is to be unveiled this month of June, just like it happened with last year’s OnePlus 3, but the details of the specific date are still unclear.
The phone has appeared in quite a number of leaks and rumors, but as usual, not everything can be trusted about these unconfirmed reports. The good side of the story is that the Chinese OEM has regularly been jumping in with a few teasers of its own, trying to give fans an early look at what the upcoming OnePlus 5 will be coming in with.
We’ve seen alleged specs, features and even benchmarks of the OnePlus 5. The company also teased what could be the color variants of the phone when it comes out this coming month. Not so long ago, Qualcomm added more weight to what had previously been rumored by confirming that the phone will ship with the new Snapdragon 835 running the show.
The Chinese OEM made things even sweeter by further confirming that it will be teaming up with imaging industry experts DxOMark as far as the development of the OnePlus 5 camera is concerned. DxOmark has already given the HTC U11 the highest ever ranking of a smartphone – 90 – but it appears that the company is helping the OnePlus 5 take this ranking to the next level.
From new shots shared by the company on its official Twitter page, OnePlus has published two images side by side, asking the fans if they can tell which of the two was taken by the new OnePlus 5. Given the expectations from the company now that DxOMark experts are on board, it’s easy to spot what could be the shot taken by the new phone.

The two photos were captured in low-light condition. Where the first image looks hazy, dim, colorless and basically lacking in just about every other aspect, the second photo has some vibrant colors with more details. If anything, this is the version that was taken by the new OnePlus 5 phone.
The main reason behind partnering with DxOMark was so as to bring an enhanced photography experience. If this is part of it, well, there’s no doubt that OnePlus 5 will be a monster of a phone not just in terms of performance hardware, but also when it comes to photography. Still, we can’t tell just how much of a difference the image experts will bring to the fold, at least for now.
We’ve heard of a dual-lens camera setup in the pipes, which is nothing strange as far as the latest smartphone trends are concerned. However, how exactly the two lenses will work with each other is still unclear at this point in time.
