First OnePlus 3 camera sample surfaces

OnePlus 3 camera sample

This is around the time of the year when the tech world is abuzz with OnePlus rumours. It all started back in 2013 when a fresh new brand wanted to change the smartphone scene. Their first phone, the OnePlus One came out mid-2014.

Fast forward to 2016, we’re looking at OnePlus’ 4th phone, after the One, 2, and the X — the OnePlus 3. Rumours about this phone having some serious grunt under its hood are already rife.

The OnePlus 2 had one of the best cameras for a 2015 phone, so what to expect from the successor? Something even better, naturally. We have here a picture taken from the OnePlus 3, that shows some impressive depth of field.

Take a look here.

Bear in mind though, as is with any social media image, this one too has gone through some serious compression algorithms. You can ignore the detail for now, concentrate on the depth of field, which is what OnePlus want us to notice anyway I feel.

Besides (hopefully) an impressive camera, the OnePlus 3 is expected to feature the Snapdragon 820 processor, and up to 6GB of RAM.

    Wonder if it’s a dual camera setup, seeing how strong the effect is (I remember honor 6+: the bokeh aftereffect was even stronger than needed sometimes)

      That would be a very interesting phone then! One might be able to forgive the invite system they have. 😉

        Well, there are many other things I can’t “forgive” oneplus for other than invite system (which they’re gradually getting rid of), so they should put way more effort to win me over xD

    Off topic to Yash or Andi:
    There’s something wrong with the JavaScript of your mobile version.
    The right arrow to see more entries doesn’t work.

    For references is the one with “ajax-next-page”
    I would help you with it but I don’t have a laptop with me and I can’t do much through the phone.

    But from the behavior I would say that the whole JavaScript didn’t load at all.

      For me the search box doesn’t show up after I click on the icon. No matter if ti’s FF, or IE, just doesn’t work. I’m currently using google if want to find something there.

        Both issues are identified, @disqus_0lJZ8Bi7SK:disqus & @vmortens:disqus. For now, please use the search in the sidebar while this is fixed. Thanks for the msg anyway.

          I am having the same issues to see next page using the right arrow on both phone and desktop. So the issue is not only with mobile version. It is happening since last four days.

        It works for me.

        Try to type this on the address bar of your browser:


        And replace xxx with whatever you want to search.
        PS: replace the “spaces” with a “+”

        Example: you want to search “balcobomber stinks”

        The address would be:

    i dunno about “good depth of field” the depth of field in this is super shallow, if it was said that its good macro then fine

    Err I don’t know much about camera’s but why is that such a great photo? I took this picture with my phones camera. I don’t really see why the above picture is great, Low light pictures are what really separate the decent from the great. All they have done is focused up close which throws the background out of focus, in full daylight 🙂

    I am sure the camera sensor will be OmniVision OV16860 as it is high resolution, big camera pixel size, super fast and very good low light performing sensor. Along with laser sensor, 3 axis ois and pdaf this will be one of the quickest high resolution camera. Hope it performs as good as Lg g5.
