If you look at the past flagships from oneplus, you can't deny that they come with robust camera configurations. But even with better hardware, OnePlus has always struggled with camera performance. After all, in the smartphone photography world, it's more about optimization and computation tricks rather than hardware. Well, that changed with the OnePlus Open. And the OnePlus 12 will take it to the next step.
Just two days ago, OnePlus confirmed that the upcoming flagship will feature Sony's new Lytia dual-layer sensor. It will equip the OnePlus 12 with a better camera configuration than the OnePlus Open. And as the camera samples from Li Jie Louis showcase, the phone is also about to come with better optimizations.
