OnePlus has slowly progressed from making “flagship killer” smartphones to flagship phones but it still lacks some top-notch features that we usually find in premium smartphones from other brands.
While the OnePlus smartphones are widely appreciated, its flagship phones have mostly been criticized for the camera department, which has not been able to match the performance offered by its competitors. But now that is about to change this year.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has taken to Weibo to say that the company is investing heavily in cameras this year and is aiming to be a leader in this department. While nothing much is known about this, it’s likely that the company will be focusing more on the software part.
Given that the OnePlus 9 series is all set to launch in the coming months, we don’t expect to see huge improvements in terms of camera performance because of this new investment from the company. However, the OnePlus 9T series, which will launch in the second half of this year, is expected to have improved camera technology.
OnePlus is also reportedly partnering with lens maker Leica, which has been collaborating with Huawei. This could be what the company needs given that Huawei’s flagship smartphones have always been a leader in terms of camera performance.
Meanwhile, the upcoming OnePlus 9 series is expected to offer three devices — OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and OnePlus 9 SE (or 9 Lite). This time, the company is also going to offer wireless charging and reverse wireless charging among other premium features.
