This year we have seen a new discovery from the OnePlus 8 Pro’s 5MP color filter camera. Max Weinbach from XDA-developers discovered the see through characteristic from photochrome mode. It became viral on entire internet for many days, and it seemed very creepy to see through clothes and plastic materials. Now OnePlus has disabled this photochrome mode of 8 Pro in latest update globally due to risk of bad use.
OnePlus is now rolling out the new update that weighs (157mb) for the OnePlus 8 Pro worldwide, and the changelog of the build (10.5.9.IN11AA) shows that this photochrome mode is being removed temporarily for adjustments and not permanently. It is possible that OnePlus may be able to fix that creepy see through mode and then enables it in future updates, but as of now we don’t have any other official statement.
