The trickle of OnePlus One spec details continues to drip-drop today. This time around we're filling in one of the biggest blanks about the One that was remaining: its camera.

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has announced in his company's official forums that the OnePlus One will feature a 13-megapixel camera with an Exmor IMX214 sensory made by Sony. The sensor boasts an f/2.0 aperture and, in order to compensate for the distorted edges that can appear on photos taken with low aperture lenses, OnePlus has added a sixth lens to the One's shooter.

The One's camera will also feature Image Stabilization Plus technology. This feature, which sounds similar to the Optical Image Stabilization tech found on other smartphones, reduces noise and shakiness while a photo is being captured by gathering data from other parts inside of the phone. OnePlus says that it's using more than 120 algorithms to help produce sharper images.

On the video side of things, the OnePlus One's rear camera will be capable of capturing 4K video. The unit will also support slow motion, 120fps video capture at a resolution of 720p.

Finally, OnePlus has elected to use a 5-megapixel shooter in the One's frontside for all of your selfie needs.

To recap, we know that the OnePlus One will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, 16GB or 64GB of storage and a non-removable 3100mAh battery. We've also been told to expect a special version of CyanogenMod with voice control and a wake-up command. OnePlus hasn't revealed how much this entire package will cost consumers, but CEO Pete Lau has said that it'll be priced at below $400.

Now that we've learned all about the OnePlus One's cameras and are starting to get a pretty complete idea of what the Android device is all about, will you be checking one out when it launches in the second quarter of this year?
