OnePlus has brought back the dual camera setup with its latest flagship. However, the company has changed the implementation of the camera by replacing the telephoto lens in the dual-camera setup with a normal focal length lens with 20 MP sensor and f/1.7 aperture for improved performance in low-light conditions. This 20 MP camera sensor is in addition to the existing, primary 16 MP camera sensor with f/1.7 aperture.
The device comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat-based OxygenOS 4.7.0 out of the box. OnePlus is already working on Android Oreo 8.0 update for its devices and both OnePlus 5 and 5T users can expect the update in early 2018.
