is it a bug or a feature?

Now we know. OnePlus considers it a bug. The OnePlus 8 Pro camera with its special colour filter sensor can in certain conditions see through plastic and other thin surfaces like clothes. The news led to some interesting observations and photos by users, as well as highlighted a few privacy concerns. Now, OnePlus is saying that it will soon issue an update that will likely fix this “bug” in the OnePlus 8 Pro camera.

After OnePlus 8 Pro started reaching consumers some users found that the OnePlus 8 Pro Color Filter lens camera see through  plastic and even clothes when photo was clicked using Photochrom mode. This didn’t happen all the time, only in certain specific conditions.Oneplus camera uses infrared light for capture stunning images.

The Color Filter lens is able to see through certain surfaces because it is sensitive to IR light and can catch light that's outside the visible spectrum. This is unlike normal cameras that have an IR(infrared) filter that blocks light outside the visible spectrum.

While the company had initially remained mum on such reports, it has now taken to Weibo to confirm the news by informing users of its decision to temporarily disable this new 5-megapixel Color Filter camera in the future via a software update. The company has reportedly apologised for this oversight on its part and clarified that the update to disable the lens will be rolled out within a week.

The update is initially scheduled to be released in China and is then expected to be rolled out to global users. The company has said that this is a temporary measure, and has promised to ensure user privacy concerns are addressed before the color filter camera is re-enabled on future OnePlus 8 Pro units.

For the uninitiated, this Color Filter lens was being sold as a unique was of clicking some really stunning shots with false-color camera filters on them. However, later it was found this lens could also be used for infrared photography and also seeing through some thin plastics and thin clothing, like a t-shirt.


This bug can leads to serious privacy concerns. people may be miss use this feature or bugs for capturing unwanted bad images. In past 1998 sony launch their night vision  camcorder, which had ability to see through the surfaces and almost sold 700,000 pieces of product. but as soon as sony relized their camera see through plastic and thin surfaces in some point of lighting condition they banned their cameras.
