OnePlus lied to you and OnePlus 7 Pro does not have a 3x optical zoom

Among the intriguing functions of OnePlus 7 Pro was that it might take pictures with a 3x optical zoom. It does not appear like that.

OnePlus 7 Pro has 3 back picture electronic cameras: the primary sensing unit has 48 MP (focal size matching to 35mm), we have an ultra broad 16 MP sensing unit and also an 8 MP telephoto electronic camera that would certainly have the ability to fire with a 3x optical zoom. Well, a customer on Reddit discovered that the phone can a zoom of just 2.2 x, and also the distinction as much as 3x is done by truncating the picture.

To be able to inform you that OnePlus 7 Pro offers you a 3x optical zoom. The phone takes a 13MP image at 2.2 x optical zoom, after that reduces off the sides of the picture, providing you an 8MP picture with a 3x zoom.

OnePlus states the telephoto sensing unit has a focal size of 78mm, yet due to the fact that the sensing unit reduces the sides of the image and also takes an 8 MP picture, truth focal size is 57mm, which indicates a 2.2 x optical zoom.

It’s not the very first time that OnePlus is existing regarding zooming

This is not the very first time that OnePlus was captured guaranteed. The maker needed to fix the reality that OnePlus 5 can 2x optical zoom, when in truth it was 1.6 x. At the time, Carl Pei, head of OnePlus, stated the optical zoom is 1.6 x, et cetera of 0.4 x is made with SmartCapture innovation.

And also this time around, the business replies to these complaints in a veiled means:

“OnePlus 7 Pro has a 3x zoom without loss of information. The telephoto cam is utilized for 2 situations: 3x zoom and also picture images.

What they wish to claim is that they did not exist to you when they informed you that OnePlus 7 Pro has a 3x zoom, however they simply existed to see that it is a 100% optic zoom.
