OnePlus Camera 5.4.10 adds Quick Share to social media, taking burst photos or video with a shutter long-press, and more
Android 11 Beta 1 is here! As has become tradition, in addition to the Google Pixels, several other OEMs like OPPO, Xiaomi, and Realme will also be joining in on the party at a later date. If you have a OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 8 Pro, you can actually join in right now, as OnePlus has officially released Android 11 Beta 1 for its current flagship devices. We’ve been digging around the latest betas and we have spotted several new features within the OnePlus Camera app, that gives us an indication of what is coming to OnePlus devices in the future!
The Android 11 Beta 1 for the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro comes with the OnePlus Camera v5.4.10, and it has a bunch of nifty features:
Quick Share from OnePlus Camera
After taking a photo with the camera app, you can drag the preview to share it quickly on a supported social media app.
Though, one can argue whether it is a good idea to share an image directly from the preview thumbnail without opening it at all. Nonetheless, the option is there, if you do feel confident about the shot.
New Photo Filters
The new camera app update adds a lot of new filters, but there are in various stages of completion. OnePlus has not given all of the new filters proper names yet. We examined the APK to get the user-facing names of some of these filters, but note that not all the filters have proper names just yet.
The filters we spotted are currently named: FaceApp, O1, BeautyPlus, Black & White (New), Clare, Juno, Valencia, Snapseed, Sweetsnap, and Youcam. As mentioned, these may not be the final names as would appear on the camera UI. The OnePlus Camera app already has a Black and White filter, but there is also a new Black and White filter — we presume that it has some enhancements and key differentiation areas, but we do not know conclusively yet.
Burst Photos and Video
As the name implies, the camera app allows you to take burst photos and videos. Long pressing the shutter button will let you take a quick set of photos or record a short video. When you let go of the shutter button, the photos and/or video stops being captured.
New Zoom UI
The camera app brings along a new UI for zooming in and out.
Dragging left zooms out, while dragging right zooms in. The new UX is more thumb-friendly than pinch-to-zoom and the pop-out zoom carousel.
Preparing to add Document Mode to OnePlus Camera
We spotted strings that suggest that OnePlus is working on adding a new document mode. The feature is under development, and it doesn’t appear to be live just yet, though.
You can try out these features on the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro on the Android 11 Beta 1. Since these features do not appear to be reliant completely on hardware, they could possibly be coming to other OnePlus devices as well in the future.
