OnePlus teams up with DxO Labs to enhance OnePlus 5 camera experience

DxO is perhaps most well-known for creating the defining photography benchmark, the DxOMark.
OnePlus has formally confirmed the name of its next flagship smartphone, and tipped some exciting camera news too.
Both the Google Pixel (scoring 89 in Oct 16) and HTC U11 (scoring 90 in May 17) used DxOMark's scores during their launch events to prove they had the best smartphone camera on the market.
For many folks, their smartphone camera is their only camera, and so camera performance is an important part of a new smartphone.
However, OnePlus has not said what exactly would-be customers can expect from this partnership. Based on published images, we can assume that OnePlus will lose 5 3.5 mm audio connector.
OnePlus flagships have always been decent performers in terms of camera quality, but the company says that there is "always more to be done to give you the ability to take clearer, more handsome photos".
OnePlus is well aware of this, so it has teamed up with DxO to "enhance [the] photography experience" with the upcoming OnePlus 5. All those leaks have two things in common, they suggest that the phone will be made out of metal, and that it will sport a dual camera setup on the back.
As of now, the OnePlus 5 is rumoured to have a dual-camera lens.
Anyway, this collaboration has a very good look, since surely in its marketing they will also leave the DxOMark score which makes it obvious that they will not want their new high-end mobile to have a poor score. The company has teased the OnePlus5 multiple times and it's gradually revealing more information about the device.
Recollecting some previous leaks, OnePlus 5 will run on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat and will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor along with Adreno 540 GPU.
The OnePlus 5 will probably sport a 5.5-inch fullHD or QHD AMOLED display, along with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and chances are that several storage variants will become available.
