The OnePlus 8 Pro rolled out last month, sooner than the usual May releases, and it made quite an impression. It comes with some powerful specs, like a Snapdragon 865 processor, which is 5G enabled, a 6.5-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate, or the quad rear-facing camera system that has some stunning results.
Now, the OnePlus 8 Pro has a feature that would make the most of us cringe. Apparently, some sharp reviewers discovered that one camera filter can see through clothes.
The back camera system consists of a 48MP primary imaging sensor, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens, a 48MP ultra-wide-angle snapper, and a now controversial 5MP “color filter” camera.
Unbox Therapy showed how the “X-Ray Camera Filter” works and this raised some privacy concerns among fans.
The filter, by its machine translated name “Autumn Concept”, is not actually as dramatic as it sounds but OnePlus was quick to respond to the claims. The company detailed on Weibo that its taking steps to “eliminate” its impact on “user privacy under possible extreme circumstances” and its coming with an update ”within a week”.
Basically, OnePlus will try to find a way to keep the general X-ray functionality of the camera while stoping it from penetrating clothing items.
