One aspect in which the newly announced OnePlus 6T excels over the OnePlus 6 phone is low-light photography. The new flagship phone from OnePlus is equipped with Nightscape photography feature that allows it to capture optimized photos in dim-light conditions. At the unveil event of the OnePlus 6T, the Chinese manufacturer confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will be also receiving the Nightscape feature.
The OnePlus 6 that was announced in May this year could not compete very well with its rivals in the low-light photography department. OnePlus 6T’s Nightscape feature comprises of three levels of enhanced photography features such as detail optimization, multi-frame stabilization and noise reduction. Longer shutter speeds ensures that the OP6T is able to capture images with good brightness in dim-light conditions. The Chinese manufacturer confirmed that the smartphone won’t take more than 2 seconds to process Night Mode images. OnePlus 6T’s is similar to Night Sight feature available on the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones.
OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will be blessed with the Nightscape feature through a software update. The OP6 is expected to receive the update within a week after the launch of the OnePlus 6T. There is no confirmation on whether Nightscape mode will be made available to older phones like OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T.
