OnePlus 8 Pro

A new update to OnePlus 8 Pro now disables the Color filter camera around the world.


A few days back, people discovered that the Color Filter Camera could act as an X-Ray camera. Since then OnePlus decided to shut that off with an update to the OnePlus 8 Pro.

The OnePlus 8 Pro doesn’t reverse the color using that specific camera but uses an infrared setup to inverse the colors. However, recent tests made it clear that the camera can look through several surfaces like plastics, clothes, etc. Which means a hefty blow to a person’s privacy. And since then OnePlus has been under heavy load to turn this camera off.

Initially this update was meant to launch only in China. However, many reddit users are reporting about getting an update which has the same function – disable the Color Filter Camera.

The update comes along with OxygenOS 10.5.9 update. It is rolling out in phases around the world right now. At first only few, but later on majority will get the update.
