The next big OnePlus launch will take place later this month and it seems the popular tech firm is taking a leaf straight out of Huawei’s book. An invite sent out by OnePlus reveals the date of the release alongside confirmation that its joining forces with Hasselblad. The name of this famous camera firm is splashed across the invite along with a picture of a lense and the words “It all begins with a simple thought.”
This new partnership has been rumoured for a while with it thought that the camera firm is helping to boost the photography credentials of the next generation of OnePlus smartphones. Hasselblad, which was founded back in 1841, is known for producing some of the very best snappers in the world with many pro photographers using these high-end cameras. It’s something that could be vital for OnePlus in the future with their cameras often criticised for not producing the best results.
The new venture between Hasselblad and OnePlus is reminiscent of a similar deal between Huawei and Leica.
The Chinese firm enlisted the help of Leica back in 2016 with its smartphone cameras now regarded as some of the best in the business and it seems OnePlus will be looking to bring some of that magic to its new phones.
