The feature will not be available in the next software update.
Let me remind you, OnePlus 8 Pro is equipped with four camera modules: 48 MP (Sony IMX689, f / 1.7, OIS) + 48 MP (super wide, Sony IMX586, f / 2.2) + 8 MP (telephoto, triple hybrid zoom, f / 2.2, OIS ) + 5 MP (auxiliary sensor for creating various color effects). The latter sensor has become especially popular recently, because it turned out that the photochromic filter is able to shine through some objects.
In this mode, the smartphone’s camera allows you to see what is hidden under the thin plastic of various objects, as well as under some clothes. In this regard, OnePlus decided to disable the camera with color filters in the next software update. The company apologized to the Weibo social network for the inconvenience and clarified that the functionality would not be available only temporarily until the engineers found a suitable solution that would not cause privacy issues.
The software update for the OnePlus 8 Pro will begin to be distributed within a week in China. Probably, immediately after this, the update will fly to other regions.
