Smartphone maker OnePlus is apparently going to improve the camera capabilities of the OnePlus 5T. The move is a result of feedback OnePlus got from its users, prompting an update that will improve the phone’s low light shooting capabilities, and photos coming from its front camera.
OnePlus will also be adding a “Beautification Mode” to the front camera but limited only to the Asian markets.
“As people have started receiving their OnePlus 5T orders, we’ve also begun seeing feedback from our community. Upon seeing this, we wanted to iterate and improve as soon as we possible could,” wrote Carl Pei, co-founder of OnePlus, via a blog post.
Further, Pei said that the testing phase is expected to begin amongst a “private group” from next week, while it should start rolling out to users from December onwards. OnePlus will also be adding a “Beautification Mode” to the front camera. This will be kept on by default, but only in Asian markets.
The OnePlus 5T is an update over the OnePlus 5, launched just about six months ago. The company replaced the telephoto camera from that phone, with a new 20MP f/1.7 camera, for better low light shots. However, it seems users aren’t very happy with the low light capabilities of the OnePlus 5T.
The device also runs on the Snapdragon 835 chipset and has a 6 inch 18:9 display, along with a 3300 mAh battery.
