Soon after this, some other tech enthusiasts started testing this hidden feature of OnePlus 8 Pro. Digital Trends did their own digging into this hidden ability and found that the OnePlus 8 Pro’s camera can even see through the Nintendo Switch Pro Controler. According to their tests, the color filters through the camera can only see through plastics that don’t have any form of infrared shielding.
Later on, it was also discovered that the OnePlus 8 Pro’s camera can pick up on infrared LED lights and more that cannot be observed by the human eye. The color filter that allows this ability to be highlighted is “Photochrom,” which can be found in the default OnePlus camera app.
Well, it good to consider that the OnePlus 8 Pro is not the only smartphone that has this ability, there are a few other smartphones available that have a similar sensor and a few specialize in infrared technology like the Pixel 4 and iPhone 11 series. However, they don’t give such features on their phone.
