OnePlus 7 brings a major update to the rear end sensors. The dual-camera setup of the OnePlus 7 comes with 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 primary sensor with an f/1.7 aperture which is also the primary lens shared by OnePlus 7 Pro. The secondary sensor is a 5-megapixel depth sensor with an f/2.4 aperture which is the brains behind the portrait shots. It also bags a 16-megapixel front sensor with an f/2.0 aperture for great selfies. Although the front camera is the same as the OnePlus 6 & 6T.
Talking about cameras, is it just the hardware that brings out those crisp sharp images? Or is the software also responsible for the process? We have all seen google devices sporting a single sensor, and they are competing with two, even 3 camera devices.
So, how do they do it?
Google over time has developed an algorithm for its picture processing which truly brings out the zest in any image. And it is a major reason why google camera ports are common in almost every device. Pictures have been clicked and compared from devices – from high end smartphones to budget-riffs. And, the google camera always seem to produce more “lifelike” pictures. This doesn’t mean that the OnePlus algorithm is bad. It just isn’t as refined as the google camera. Here is a quick picture comparison from the stock OnePlus camera and the Google camera mod on the OnePlus 7:
