One last component makes up the OnePlus 2's fancy photographer: The infrared laser rangefinder.

This component is made up of two parts: an IR LED and matched receiver.

The IR LED probably projects a cone of IR light on the subject, which bounces to the receiver. This lets the camera estimate the distance to the subject, and snap the focus to match.

We also shot it full of X-rays, because we can.
