Huawei
OnePlus did not upgrade the camera hardware of the OnePlus 6T coming from the OnePlus 6. BUT, they made sure that they improved its software.

It still has the 16MP f/1.7 Sony IMX519 sensor and 20MP f/1.7 Sony IMX376 sensor with PDAF focus, OIS, and EIS at the back. But, OnePlus stated that they tweaked its computational photography algorithm to optimize images further.

It is designed to let the OP6T shoot images with better HDR and color balance. OnePlus also added the new multi-frame Nightscape mode with 2s exposure time for much better low-light shots.

The selfie cam is the same as well. You will still find the trusty 16MP f/1.7 Sony IMX371. They just added the portrait mode feature to allow its front camera selfie shots with bokeh/background blur.

Anyway, the cameras of the OnePlus 6T are still promising for us. Let's take a look at some of shots.

Quick thoughts

The OnePlus 6T has the same camera hardware from the OnePlus 6, but the experience is different.

On auto point and shoot, the difference is hardly noticeable. It can still shoot images with a lot of details even in gloomy conditions. White balance is just a bit better as it is slightly more natural looking. Colors tone is still a bit warm, but not as warm and saturated as the OP6. HDR is slightly better and more detailed to my eyes as well.

The Nightscape is the game changer. The Nightscape mode will take multiple images for 2 seconds and combine them into 1 picture.

It allowed us to shoot incredible images in low light. It has deep contrast, wide dynamic range, good color tones, and extra crisp image with less noise than most similarly priced phones. It also has great highlights and shadows.

It is the feature that allowed the OP6T to take night shots that could compete with Huawei's up to 6s Super Night Mode.

The only downside of the Nightscape mode so far is the saving time. Saving time is a bit slow at around 8 seconds.

So far, sweet!

We will reverse our final judgement in our full review.
