OnePlus is set to launch the OnePlus 6 on May 16 at an event in London. Ahead of that, the company's CEO Pete Lau has shared official pictures taken from the OnePlus 6 camera, giving us a glimpse of photo quality. These are the first official camera samples of the OnePlus 6 coming out of the executive's den. The smartphone is expected to sport a vertical dual camera setup and have AI features embedded in it as well.

Lau has shared these camera samples on social networking site Weibo. These four photos are meant to be a testimony to how the optics work on the OnePlus 6. The photo taken at night has little noise, while the other photos depict vivid colour, as well as good crispness, detail, and depth. All in all, looking at the photos, the camera quality of the OnePlus 6 appears to be quite good.

When it comes to optics, previous rumours have suggested that the OnePlus 6 will come with a vertical dual camera setup at the back and might bear a 20-megapixel primary and a 16-megapixel secondary sensor. The front camera of the OnePlus 6 is rumoured to get a 16-megapixel sensor for selfies and video calling. OnePlus recently had also pitted its camera against the iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9, and Google Pixel 2 suggesting that the OnePlus 6 camera is better than the competition.
