    i have purchased OnePlus 7 and was checking rear and front camera.
    what i found from image information is - resolution is not 8000 x 6000 with regular photo captured using rear camera.

    i checked with my colleagues who uses camera more than me..
    it turns out to me that 48mp camera is only available with pro mode. here only i can see it in image information as well..

    please help me understand it more.. it feels me OP cheated..

    the main sensor is a 48MP one, but in auto mode it uses a technique called pixel binning to reduce noise. You can select the full 48MP option in Pro Mode if you want.

    it would have been nice to atleast have the raw image being taken in full 48mp resolution.
    currently only jpeg 48mp option is available.
    lets hope theyll give an option soon.

    Yeah, this has been mentioned many, MANY times on these forums. Maybe you should start reading before opening up pointless threads.

    Maybe.. but i think when you buy product where one would be checking details.. on product site.. right.. not into its community.. and even not everyone could be aware about such community..
