    Fair enough. But I don't understand why mkbhd wouldn't use the Max specs to give it the best chance at succeeding.

    Interesting thread on reddit about the camera. According to this, Pete said that their goal was to have the best camera on the market, that they didn't succeed in that but could have done so with an additional two months of development time. Carl commented, "It's better to release the OnePlus 2 first, while our dedicated camera team keeps working on the tuning. OxygenOS will be frequently updated with these (and other) improvements."

    I use to make my career as a photojournalist for some rather large publications, but now I'm retired, and my interest in the One + was due to the fact that it would provide RAW files ! I love the fact that I can open files into PS or Lightroom as raw, and then I can really have total control of the file. I look at the One+ as the first, and so far (as far as I know), the only phone to provide these large files.
    I'm really looking forward to the specs on the camera, but this new "C" USB is killer for me: look forward to being able to download large RAW files with a fast USB device, and not have to take up space on the phone. I'm going to be doing a project using only my current One+, and hopefully, a One2 ASAP. RAW files are much better for my type of photo work over jpegs ! RAW is like getting the whole loaf of bread of data (space) vs. a piece of that loaf, like a jpeg provides. I go back to film and paper, so this new digital age is just my cup of tea. YMMV

    The LG G4 has the option for RAW files as well. I don't believe the initial version of the 1+2 camera software will have that support (it wasn't in the one tested by MKBHD), but I'm pretty sure it will come eventually.

    Because just like he can't show us the actual phone in his hand he can't reveal final specs. Also he is in on the joke and has been messing with us typing #hype evertime someone aks something about op2 teasing us with Snapchat partial unboxing. These guys all met up before you can see them all in pictures together. He will do an actual full review after the 27th with the whole phone and will be the first one to do so. Like some people said maybe the review was for the front camers wouldn't that be funny?

    Good link! So from what I gather(if he isn't just messing with us) is that they are bringing the best hardware setup in the market but they havnt finished the software side yet but will be received as an update later on..I'm OK even if it can competed with the top cameras at all. Seeing as they had a great camera on the opo but OK software it didn't compete let alone blow away the competition. There is no way he will let that happen again. Having said that being top dog is a different story all together.

    And fingerprint scanner won't be on the back which is good news for me anyways. They didn't specify if it would be on the front or side however but I imagine it would be on the front to make it easy to one touch quickly unlock like other phones but idk:)

    Megapixels doesn't mean quality. You can shoot 50 MP pics on your OPO already. It'll only make your files bigger but will not see a dramatic improvement.

    Well it won't be on screen, but as for camera. RAW file is superb way to elevate photography on phones. Love it since they added it to OPO. Since camera is huge argument when choosing phone, I hope they can impress us in good way with new OPT and it's camera.

    Actually, I think he ruled that out in his periscope session a few days ago. Someone asked about the FFC resolution and he said he didn't actually check it, he only looked to see how wide the field of view was. (As I recall, he said it was pretty wide but not the widest.)

    I sure hope it's improved... The camera was terrible on my OPO and was one of the main reasons I sold it. Improve, and I'll buy the OPT(maybe) ;)

    OPO has pretty good camera, not the best but still on top. HTC m7 falls way behind, same for s4. These are facts, works well in dark conditions and with Google camera app it really shines. Original camera app was kinda bad, that is true.
