OnePlus is set to upgrade the camera experience this year by making upgraded autofocus, stabilization in 4K videos, and a quicker shutter.
The Chinese company held an “Open Ear Forum” in New York to get feedback from its users and know what’s best it can give either through software updates or hardware upgrades in 2020.
After hearing from its users, the company has posted a forum post to feature its roadmap and publish some of the forthcoming camera improvements.
The forum post underlines that OnePlus is thinking to tune all the built-in cameras of its smartphones to give identical exposure and flexibility in color and white balance.
The company is also in plans to improve both hardware and software sides to present consistent autofocus this year.
In 2020, OnePlus is also planning to develop panning shots stabilization and sleekness and bring quicker shutter results.
The company says that particularly to make a quicker shutter performance, it would release future updates with software improvements.
OnePlus flagships do have 4K video recording assistance, but what they lag in is maintenance for 4K resolution across all the possible camera sensors.
The company is projecting to produce full-HD (1080p) and 4K support in all three camera sensors with the choice to switch between lenses while recording in its future devices.
You can also demand night mode for recording videos in dark and recording through two cameras concurrently. Further, the company has noticed that it is running on optimizing 4K video recording length also zooming support for time-lapse shots.
The forum post also highlights OnePlus is running on color grading and LUT options and upgrading the video tools accessible in the Gallery app. Likewise, some analysis work has already got a place in supporting depth-of-field to enable telephoto camera recording. .
The company, however, has remarked that the current position has not reached its standard to release.
In addition to the roadmap, the forum post considers features such as AR emoji and stickers, social media mode, and light painting style that OnePlus has put apart for the time being to provide focus to the higher preference feature requests.
“We hope these responsibilities are in line with your expectations for videography, and hopefully they will address some pain points you might have,” answered Zake Zhang, Image Product Manager at OnePlus, in the discussion post.
Cameras are indeed top preferences for smartphone manufacturers nowadays. But OnePlus doesn’t want to limit its developments towards cameras and photography only.
Beginning this month, OnePlus announced its 120Hz QHD+ Fluid Display technology that is touted have 0.8 Just Noticeable Colour Difference (JNCD) rating — lesser than what’s accessible on the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The new display — alongside the ongoing camera developments — would be a part of the next-generation OnePlus flagship.
