opoThe upcoming OnePlus One handset is definitely one to look forward to. Why is that, you ask? Well for starters it will be yet another Android handset that comes preinstalled with CyanogenMod (the first was the Oppo N1).

The handset is expected to be officially announced later this month, the 23rd of April to be exact, and safe to say that the phone is no slouch and will pack some pretty impressive specs, like a 13MP rear-facing camera that uses Sony’s sensor. So how does the camera hold up? Is it on par with some of the top smartphones out there today?

Well thanks to Kang Yi, a young lady from China’s Renmin University, she has recently uploaded a bunch of photos taken with the OnePlus One handset and published them on her Weibo account. The photos are apparently untouched meaning that what you see is what you get. The photos aren’t your typical test photos either.

They seem to consist of a bunch of selfies taken against scenic backgrounds, as well as some indoor shots, and we have to say that we’re pretty impressed with what we have seen so far. For the most part, photos taken with sufficient lighting appear to be pretty clean and sharp, although there were some night photos taken that appear to be pretty noisy, but other than that it’s still pretty decent.

For those who might have missed our coverage, the OnePlus One is expected to run on a customized version of the CyanogenMod 11 ROM. It will pack a 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p display, a 3,100mAh battery, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset clocked at 2.45GHz with 3GB of RAM and is expected to be priced at $400. What do you guys think?
