New Software Updates Will Fix The OnePlus 5T Camera
OnePlus co-founder, Carl Pei took to OnePlus’ forums to share that the OnePlus 5T will receive an update that appears to improve the cameras’ low-light performance, particularly when it comes to sharpness.
When OnePlus launched the OnePlus 5 earlier this year, there was a lot of talk around its camera. OnePlus itself marketed the phone’s camera extensively and showed off the dual-camera setup at the back. With the OnePlus 5T, the Chinese smartphone maker has gone with a different dual camera setup. The secondary telephoto lens is replaced with a 20MP sensor with an f/1.7 aperture meaning, in theory, the OnePlus 5T should have good low-light performance.
But, as we noted in our full review, the OnePlus 5T doesn’t perform well under lowlight at all and would need a serious software update to fix the processing of the images.
The update will also try to improve the front-facing camera when it comes to more natural exposure in images taken from it. According to OnePlus, it will test the update with a private group next week, with a public roll-out scheduled for early December.
It is to be seen till what extent these updates will “fix” the camera performance of the OnePlus 5T. In the past, we have seen other smartphone makers also trying to improve the camera performance through software updates. Essential is a prime example of that, and how the OnePlus 5T will perform once these updates are rolled out will be interesting to see.
