Ahead of the launch, OnePlus has posted a new teaser where its OnePlus 6 camera takes on the rivals. In the teaser, OnePlus has shared four camera samples taken by different flagship phones, including OnePlus 6 and left it to the fans to guess which photo has been taken by which phone.

The photos focus on a building in broad day light conditions. The surroundings include a clear sky and greenery around. A few fans have guessed that the photo sample D is by the new OnePlus 6 though sample A also looks quite impressive in terms of colour balance, details and shadows. Surprisingly, the samples B and C look very underwhelming. You can check out these new photo samples here
