With the May 14 OnePlus 7 announcement swiftly approaching, the marketing team is in full swing. This time around, OnePlus partnered with Harper's Bazaar India and GQ India for the magazines' May 2019 cover shots.
Harper's Bazaar cover stands out because it states the photo is not filtered or digitally altered. The photo is of actress and activist Jameela Jamil and was taken for the magazine's body issue. Jamil specifically insisted there be no airbrushing or digital retouching done to her photographs.
However, we may not be looking at a straight out of camera shot, as the creative director was quoted saying, "I couldn't believe we had an option to shoot RAW images without having to connect it to an app or computer." While digital retouching is often used to perfect images for print, there is still much that can be done with a RAW image.
Regardless, the photo shows how OnePlus, and phone cameras in general, have come a long way. What once took a top of the line DSLR costing thousands of dollars can now be accomplished with a smartphone that will run you less than a grand.
It appears while Harper's Bazaar India photos show off what the OnePlus 7 Pro can do without digital retouching, GQ India's photos reveal what it can do in low light. That's if the tweet sent out by OnePlus India is to go by.
The community wanted a camera which could shoot better images in low-light💡So here's presenting this month's @gqindia cover shot feat. @RajkummarRao #ShotonOnePlus7Pro https://t.co/i16p9mDABdThe community wanted a camera which could shoot better images in low-light💡So here's presenting this month's @gqindia cover shot feat. @RajkummarRao #ShotonOnePlus7Pro https://t.co/i16p9mDABd— OnePlus India (@OnePlus_IN) May 2, 2019May 2, 2019
The cover photo is actor Rajkummar Rao and taken by Rohan Shrestha who had this to say:
While these are the latest photos we've seen from the unreleased Oneplus 7 Pro, we saw some samples earlier this week from Wired. If the photos so far are anything to go by, we are very impressed and we can't wait to get our hands on one and test it out properly.
Best bang for the buck
OnePlus has always been in the business of giving you the most for your money, and even as prices rise, it still delivers on that. The OnePlus 6T combines striking design, high-end specs, and a clean software package ensuring you get one of the best experiences on Android without feeling the pain in your wallet.
The shots look good, but I've had comparable shots from other devices. So, are we saying that the OnePlus 7 is as good as the Pixel?
There's nothing that complex about those shot's. Many of the latest phones could accomplish the same thing.. Btu, kudos to One Plus for good PR.
Funny they emphasize the "better low light" yet you could get similar shots on most flagship devices...
