OnePlus has announced a collaboration with DxO for the camera on the OnePlus 5, indicating that they’re planning on taking photography very seriously this time around while also confirming the existence of that oft-rumored device.
Unfortunately, that’s the beginning and the end of the announcement. The two companies will be working together to create a fine-tuned smartphone camera, but OnePlus stopped short of giving away any details about what’s going to make the camera so special.
Regardless, it’s a good move for OnePlus. All of their flagship devices are great phones, but the cameras have always been good, not great. Seeing a heavy emphasis on photography could fix one of the only weak points that OnePlus has. Leaked photos and rumors are very promising for the OnePlus 5, too, especially if the dual camera setup turns out to be accurate.
