The OnePlus 6T successor is set to launch later this year. Dubbed as OnePlus 7, the smartphone made an unofficial appearance on the web sporting notch-less screen design and unique camera setup. Ahead of the launch in the first half of this year, new details about the latest flagship phone have emerged.

DSLR-like camera

Oppo on Monday announced it will unveil a 10X lossless optical zoom technology for smartphones. Rumours are the technology will make its way to the OnePlus 7 smartphone as well.

Oppo and OnePlus operate separately but have same BBK Electronics as the parent company. More than often OnePlus borrows features from the recent Oppo flagship phone. In the case of OnePlus 6T, the smartphone came with Oppo R17 Pro-like in-screen fingerprint sensor and waterdrop notch.

As far as 10x lossless optical zoom goes, Oppo’s new technology is an improved version of the 5X optical zoom system it showcased at Mobile World Congress (MWC) a couple of years ago. Oppo also launched 5X as a reference phone for the new camera technology.

Better performance

OnePlus 7 is set to launch with Qualocmm’s latest Snapdragon 855 processor. While the latest chipset brings ultra fast performance at the chipset level, OnePlus 7 is also going to step up its game with Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 3.0. This will be a serious upgrade over the Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 2.1 storage used in most of the smartphones.

The latest UFS tech allows faster data transfer, estimated to be around 2279MB per second and sequential write speed at 1801MB per second ( leaked test scores on an OnePlus device).

UFS 3.0 is itself a new technology standard and is promised to deliver twofold bandwidth and lesser power when booting. Read more about the new storage standard here.

Apart from faster storage and processor, OnePlus is expected to push the RAM barriers. It recently launched a premium McLaren Edition with up to 10GB of RAM.

More,

OnePlus 7 is most likely to be the company’s first smartphone to be 5G ready. The company has already announced it will launch a 5G OnePlus phone in European markets this year. According to reports, OnePlus will introduce a new lineup of 5G phones while keep offering non-5G phones at affordable prices.

Nokia 8 Gets Pixel 3’s Night Sight via Ported Google Camera App

Nokia 8 Gets Pixel 3's Night Sight via Ported Google Camera App

The Google Camera app that arrived alongside the new Pixel devices has been lauded for its loaded software features. The app brings EIS, Night Sight, and many other features that really bring high quality photo results. The app has been ported for many smartphones like the OnePlus 6T ₹ 37,999, OnePlus 6 ₹ 35,999, Xiaomi Mi 8, and Poco F1. Now, the Nokia 8 ₹ 24,990 smartphone also gets the ported version of the Google Camera app, and the download link can be found below.

NokiaPowerUser has a list of smartphones that can download the Google Camera APK, and it has recently added Nokia 8 to the list as well. The ported version of Google Camera app can be downloaded by Nokia 8 users running on Android Pie and on Android Oreo as well. The app is 110MB in size, and can be downloaded directly onto the smartphone. The other Nokia phones that can download the Google Camera APK include Nokia 8.1, Nokia 7.1, Nokia 6.1, Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6. You can find all the download links here.

As mentioned, this app brings the Night Sight mode on to the Nokia 8. Google notably announced the new mode alongside unveiling the Pixel 3 ₹ 58,804 models in October, but officially rolled it out to all Pixel users last month. While comparing the camera performance of the Pixel 3 XL ₹ 74,999, iPhone XS ₹ 93,505, and Galaxy Note 9, we found that the Night Sight mode helps in capturing enough light during low-light conditions to deliver bright shots with all the relevant details. It essentially captures up to 15 frames with a reasonably slow shutter to provide an effective exposure of nearly five seconds. This comes in place of keeping the camera shutter open for four to five seconds, which would blur the image.

We recently reported, that the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T also got the ported version of the Google Camera app. Even the Xiaomi Mi 8 and Poco F1 ₹ 19,999 got the ported app, and users can download it on to their devices. Of course, we’d like to inform our readers that ported apps can damage phones, so caution before download is advised.
