DxO is best known for creating the photography benchmark DxoMark against which all smartphone cameras are measured. They acknowledge that it have much to improve and wished that someday a professional camera will not be necessary thanks to their smartphone and that's the reason that they will collaborate with DxO. How exactly the two companies plan on doing this is anyone's guess at this point, as the Chinese manufacturer did not share any specific info. As seen on the image, the smartphone device features a dual camera module, which has been the most heavily rumored OnePlus 5 characteristic up to date. In the blog post, OnePlus staffer Diego Heinz revealed that OnePlus had partnered with DxO Labs.
"We're happy to announce that we have teamed up with DxO to enhance your photography experience with our upcoming flagship, the OnePlus 5".
According to earlier rumours, the OnePlus 5 will come with a dual lens, 16MP rear camera. It is expected that the image quality will definitely improve from the OnePlus 3T especially in low light conditions. Android Authority was quick to note that the leaked image is likely a prototype and not the final device, however, so it's possible OnePlus has indeed moved to a horizontal layout.
In a blog post, that also happens to be the first official branding of OnePlus' next phone as the OnePlus 5, the company's digital marketing manager Diego Heinz said: "There's always more to be done to give you the ability to take clearer, more attractive photos". This also means that the phone can shoot really good pictures.
While we have previously seen OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei tease the OnePlus 5 name, it is the first time that we are aware of that the name "OnePlus 5" is officially confirmed. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor will fuel the OnePlus 5, along with the Adreno 540 GPU. The device will be backed by a 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
