    Agreed. If the camera is good, 99% chance i'll buy on launch day like I did with the 3 and the 5. If it doesn't seem to be a big camera improvement, i'll look again at the S9, P20 etc before making my mind up.
    I want a seriously impressive camera when I know that's on offer in the market, not just a 'very good' camera.

    It is really anyone's guess, you are right though, by all accounts the need to do something about the camera but I am no expert on what would be the solution.

    I understand everyone's opinions about the camera but I am no camera buff. If it points, aims clicks and gets a reasonable picture I am happy but that should not be the benchmark lol

    As far as I understand it, hardware is only a small part of the solution. The sensors used by the best phone cameras aren't anything particularly special, it's the software that's built behind them that creates the brilliant photos. OnePlus can get the same sensors as the established flagships.
    So OnePlus would need to have a dedicated photography department, probably with the backing or partnership of another photographic company to take the steps forward they need. I'm not sure if they have/might do this.

    Well they have Oppo behind them. I wonder if anyone in this forum has an Oppo to evaluate that camera? Does it suck? I wonder.

    When they launched the 5 (dual camera. Clearer photos, remember) they were keen to point out the backing of other significant partners, Sony hardware, partnering with DXO etc and the result was mediocre so I wouldn't get your hopes up on the camera front. It will be more of the same I fear.

    I actually think the photos on the 5 (what i'm using now) are pretty good. Not exceptional, but i'm not complaining. They were a significant improvement over the 3 I had before, and that's what I wanted.
    So long as the 6 is a noticeable improvement over the 5, i'll be happy. It doesn't have to be the equal of a S9. What isn't acceptable to me is their camera development largely standing still with only marginal gains, when everyone else is still making significant improvements.

    They would have to have a R15 for us to get a reasonable idea. And even then, I assume the OP software would be slightly different than the OPPO software.

    To be futureproof, OP6 needs to remove the headphone jack and add a notch... otherwise its lagging.

    I understand that but if Oppo has a better than average camera this would tell us that they know how to do it or everyone in both companies are lost

    He/she just wants to know if it will have sparkles. It's an important question. <grin>
