OnePlus, a brand that is known for offering first-class features under the not-so-premium price tag. And in line with its feature upgrade, OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau Has been confirmed The company will focus research and development on improving camera quality.
Well, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 7 series back in 2019. The OnePlus 7 Pro was the device that combined high-quality AMOLED screens with a display refresh rate of 90Hz.
Later on, other smartphone manufacturers started to follow this trend and now, we have almost all devices with high refresh rate displays.
Even today, the OnePlus 8T, the latest offering from OnePlus, is a great performer. You get some of the best specifications for the asking price.
However, there is one section, where OnePlus badly needs to look at, namely the cameras on its phones. OnePlus devices have a bad reputation when it comes to camera performance.
No, we’re not saying the photos or videos coming from OnePlus are pathetic. But it’s also not quite up to par, especially given the hardware these devices pack.
The good news is that this may change in 2021. The current CEO also assured that the company would make efforts and put research and development into improving one of its weaknesses, the camera.
A recent rumor claims OnePlus is working with Leica to lead it
Technology is one sector, where not much can be hidden for long. Several rumors have already surfaced online suggesting OnePlus is working with Leica for its upcoming flagship phones.
To the ignorant, Leica is one of the biggest names in the makers of cameras, lenses, binoculars, rifle ranges, microscopes, and eye lenses.
Pete Lau’s latest confirmation on Weibo goes well with that claim. Whatever the case, it sure is a great sight to sore eyes on for OnePlus owners who are disappointed with the camera performance on their OnePlus phones.
Moreover, the upcoming OnePlus 9 phones will come with Leica lenses. However, it should be noted that these are just rumors, and nothing can be confirmed until it comes from a reliable or official source.
OnePlus will also make efforts in the wearables sector this year. The company is already ready to launch its first fitness band. Moreover, the company is also working on a smartwatch that is expected to be launched this year.
Overall, the company has impressive plans to improve its weak fronts and also to enter new sectors. We’ll have to wait and see all the surprises that OnePlus has in store for us.
