OnePlus 5 camera samples point towards a mixed dual sensor (UPDATED)

A new set of leaked camera samples are purported to be from the OnePlus 5, and if they are, things are getting interesting.

True-Tech has obtained a set of three images that were reportedly taken with a OnePlus 5. The EXIF data – which can be changed – state that these images were taken with a device known as the “OnePlus A5000” which is the reported model number of the upcoming OnePlus 5. The Latitude and Longitude match up to Shenzhen, China and would certainly be an area where samples might be shot.

Here are the images along with the EXIF data screenshot.

Where this leak gets interesting is that the color and monochrome versions of the second image seem to indicate that the OnePlus 5 may contain both a color and monochrome sensors. This would be used to merge the images to create a richer image with deeper details.

If these images are the real deal, and to my very untrained eye, they are incredibly detailed and vibrant. If this is a true representation of what we can expect when the OnePlus 5 launches, we’re in for a heck of a treat.

These images also show a potential improvement over the last batch of leaked camera samples we saw in April that were supposedly from the OnePlus 5. Assuming both batches to be real – which it is possible one or both are not –  then it would seem to indicate more work has done to make the camera that much better.

True-Tech has provided a convenient Google Drive folder with the originals for all three images for download for those who may want to dig into them deeper.

Check out the renders we commissioned a few weeks ago to see what the OnePlus 5 could possibly look like with a dual camera configuration.

UPDATE: True-Tech was contacted by their leaker again saying it will be a 20MP color sensor instead of 16MP. As with all OnePlus 5 leaks remember to take it with a grain of salt.
