OnePlus 8 Pro users will receive an update that will temporarily disable the color filter camera, OnePlus announced via a post published on Weibo. The company’s new move has come as a result of recent reports that claimed the fourth camera sensor had “see-through” capabilities that were originally meant to enhance images. Also, it states that despite having a quad rear camera setup, the OnePlus 8 Pro will only be able to use three rear camera sensors and will currently drop the color filter camera.

Based on the machine translation of Weibo Post, Which is originally in Chinese, OnePlus will pursue a software update for this OnePlus 8 Pro Within a week to disable the color filter camera. The company has recently decided to release updates to address privacy concerns that have emerged due to reports showing See through capabilities Of the camera.

Gadgets have reached 360 Oneplus To get clarity on the update and when the company responds, it will update the location.

Although the camera was not able to replicate an X-ray scanner, which has been falsely estimated in some reports, it does have the ability to allow visibility for certain materials – particularly those that do not have infrared shielding. Some people recorded videos that showed the internals of devices such as Apple TV and TV remote controls. However, all of this was apparently due to the fact that those devices have an infrared permeable plastic.

Instrument for lighting effects and filters
OnePlus offered a color filter camera on the OnePlus 8 Pro to enhance the image with lighting effects and filters. However, as Noted By Android Police, this is mostly a gimmick as you can only use it in single camera mode and not add effects when zooming into any subject or object.

By temporarily disabling the color filter camera, OnePlus is somehow reducing the operational count of OnePlus 8 Pro rear cameras from four to three – at least for the time being. This can be something prominent for customers who are looking for a quad rear camera smartphone. But still, the company can allay concerns and bring a fourth camera back to its operations through future updates.
