OnePlus 5 rumors and leaks continue to build up the hype for the supposed "flagship killer." This time, OnePlus co-founder Pete Lau released a photo taken by the OnePlus 5 and it's pretty impressive. In fact, the quality of the photo is comparable of one taken using a DSLR camera.

Forbes reported that Lau who also goes by Liu Zuohu posted the photo on Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Facebook. The black and white photo features a man with a number of boats floating on the water behind him. This shows that the OnePlus 5 is capable of taking photos with a "shallow depth of field effect" as described by Forbes. Such effect is common with shots taken with a DSLR and is also achieved by the iPhone 7 Plus courtesy of its Portrait Mode.

This is not the first time that the company has promoted the camera of the OnePlus 5. The company previously released a photo of a bridge taken by two different cameras, one of which was that of the OnePlus 5. There were also leaked photos of the OnePlus 5 which showcased its dual camera, one of which will exclusively be a monochrome sensor, according to rumors.

Another rumor points to the OnePlus 5 having a blue light filter feature. Android Headlines reported that a OnePlus 5 video teaser was released on Thursday showing a user interface of an eBook reader. In the video, the color temperature of the device's screen is being adjusted manually. There is also a comment on the video regarding a possible revision of the OxygenOS software suite. All these point to a possible blue light filter feature on the upcoming OnePlus 5 which basically means users of the highly anticipated smartphone will get to read in the dark without straining their eyes.

The OnePlus 5 will be unveiled on June 20. It is expected to come with the Snapdragon 835 processor, a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 6GB to 8GB of RAM, and 64GB to 128GB of UFS memory. The OnePlus 5 will likely cost around $500 to $600 depending on the specifications.
