OnePlus have announced the main camera sensor on the OnePlus One will be a 13 mega-pixel Sony Exmor IMX214 unit.
Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, said on his companies forums that their aim isn’t to compete with DSLR’ dedicated cameras with the OnePlus One phone, and carefully selected the a sensor which would fit in with the design of the handset while offering the best performance.
The Sony Exmore IMX214 which OnePlus have opted for is a 13 mega-pixel CMOS unit with and F2.0 aperture. A 6 lens optical arrangement promises to prevent distortation of images, while image stabilisation is built-in too.
As well as still photos the OnePlus One can also capture 4K video, and slow-motion video at 120fps.
The front camera is a 5 mega-pixel shorter, more than enough for selfies, video calls and more.
