Shuttering Expectations: OnePlus 12 Camera Breakdown
Excitement is building up as the OnePlus 12 gears up for its grand entrance, with a sneak peek into its camera capabilities causing waves across the tech world. The President of OnePlus, Li Jie Louis, has thrown open the curtains, revealing tantalizing samples from the OnePlus 12 camera.
The Main Event: Sony Lytia Sensor Steps into the Spotlight
In the main camera department, the OnePlus 12 struts its stuff with a 50MP Sony LY-808 sensor, a result of the tag team between OnePlus and Sony. According to the president, it’s all about conquering the tricky terrain of “light and shadow.” The joint effort brings forth the Sony LYT-808, armed with the “Super Light and Shadow Image Engine” algorithm, dancing in tandem with Hasselblad’s natural colors.

Balanced colors? Double-check.
Natural bokeh at f/1.6? Triple-check.
The OnePlus 12 flexes its dynamic range muscles, showcasing the new Super Light and Shadow Engine in action, promising vibrant shots without crossing into the realm of oversaturation.
The Wide and the Not-So-Wide: Ultrawide Lens in Focus
Switching lenses, the OnePlus 12 shifts to an ultrawide perspective with a Sony IMX581 sensor. However, don’t expect it to steal the limelight from the main sensor. With a 14mm focal length and f/2.2 aperture, the ultrawide images, though decent, don’t quite match the dynamic range and detail of the main camera.
Decent but not stealing the thunder.
Zooming into Excellence: Periscope Telephoto Lens
Hold your breath for the periscope telephoto lens, a standout feature of the OnePlus 12’s camera ensemble. Sporting an OmniVision OV64B 64MP sensor, it flaunts 6x optical zoom capabilities, reaching a 140mm focal length. Li Jie paints a poetic picture of its prowess, promising clarity in capturing the tiniest details from a distance.
6x optical zoom? Impressive.
Professional Hasselblad Portrait mode at 70mm? Let the images do the talking.
