A few days back, we have seen the hidden feature of OnePlus 8 Pro camera where it can see through plastics using an advanced filter. But now, OnePlus announced today via Weibo that it will temporarily disable the “color filter” camera on the 8 Pro in a future update.
OnePlus 8 Pro camera comes with the ability to gather infrared light, was able to see through materials like certain plastics and even some kinds of cloth. Although this functionality will return in the future but only after the company made some tweaks in the working of the feature.
The Color Filter camera was marketed as being able to apply certain false-color camera filters on the shot, extending it beyond what could be achieved through software filters. Using the new Photochrome mode on the OnePlus 8 Pro, the sensor could be used for infrared photography. The same use case was then found to be useful for seeing through some thin plastics, some fluids like red wine and coke, and through very thin clothing.
According to the announcement made on Weibo, the color filter camera will be disabled within the next week via an update, but the company seems to have some kind of plans to bring it back once it can eliminate customer worries.
Although this is an amazing feature on OnePlus 8 camera, however, it sometimes violates the privacy of an individual. And so, it needs some refinements on how it will work.
