OnePlus messed up.
The OnePlus 8 Pro comes fitted with a colour filter "X-Ray" camera, and its caused people privacy concerns and has been suspended in China - Whoops.

    Well explained

    You got it back to front. They dont add a filter for a IR camera... You take the IR filter out. A raw sensor sees IR on its own. All cameras have an IR filter to block IR... Also IR cameras are used for depth sensors... more phones use this. The only difference here is Oneplus made that sensor readable in the camera software directly...

    First truly 007 smartphone much needed camera.UNfortunately they could not brand it either way not infrigment human rights of some sort.

  • Abhinav

    I'm not really sure how much privacy concern it causes. The "see through" aspect is fairly low from the pictures I've seen. Don't get me wrong though it is just a needless gimmick which just makes the phone more costly

    On certain Sony Xperia phones with a side mounted fingerprint sensor, the sensor is disabled on U.s. Firmware

    I think oneplus should respect the freedom and relase all camera app uner opensource license and fully expose everything so users who paid with their hard earned money can use it

  • Anthony Clauser
    Anthony Clauser

    As if this was a new thing. People do this with photos that were not taken with any intent. It's not half as big a deal as its being made out to be. Also clearly One Plus isn't concerned. They disabled it in China - where privacy is such a huge concern. Come on. If I wanted conspiracy theories, I'd watch the news.

    Well it's never show totally inside things because the camera is to small so the radiation is also in small quantity, if you want to watch inside of thing then you need large amount of radiation

    This whole controversy is ridiculous. You have to be under very specific circumstances to see through clothes with any sort of clarity. The video that really blew this up was the unbox therapy video where he had to stretch his shirt tightly over a brightly coloured and boldly patterned box for you to barely be able to make out the pattern on the box. Under those same circumstances you'd be able to make out the same amount by using flash photography and some super minor photo editing. If you're buying this phone for the purpose of seeing through clothes you're stupid.

  • nasdoc1

    All I've been doing is clicking photographs using that lens since I saw this video. Couldn't see through anyone's clothes. In order to click a partially see through pic you have to beclose to the object, at a perfect angle with light falling in the correct direction. It's easy if you are doing it manually like holding up a cloth and keeping something behind it and then taking a picture with proper lighting and angles.

    Few years ago, Sony came up with a camcorder with night vision and they took it out few month after when people found out it was like an x-ray vison. I guess government can use the technology but not the general public.

    ye sorry, this has happend before and was expected to happen to this phone

    I'd guess that their fix will be a loud sound of you turn on this mode or forced flashlight, so that it's obvious that you're using this mode when in public.

    What happens when you shoot in dark with that camera?

  • Burnt Chicken Nugget

    In the end its more or less used for art and photography to the average user its useless. But if you partner this camera with the other 3 it can turn it into a powerfule qaud camera setup. Even if you dont use it. The 4 cameras working together will make photos look better. Sadly its the people who use stuff like this for uninteded purposes who ruin the tech for the rest of the world. Im sure it will come out later down the line and people will be ok with it.

    If they had also added a small ir blaster, that infrared camera could actually be used for improving night mode/portrait mode edge detection/sharpening as a supplement to main camera, idk why they did not do that.

    It seems like a clever marketing tool to me. Advertise that you have an "x-ray" camera and it turns out to be disappointing for users then the company looks bad. Let HRsofts blow up with videos about the hidden feature and all of a sudden they get lots of attention.

  • Hammad Ahsan

    I fucking need this phone right now.


    Heres what i think- 1. Oneplus is based in China which is notorious. 2. The govt. wants to spy on everyone. 3. Where do we keep our phones most of the times when we are active, in our pockets, bags etc. So how to monitor everything even that which cannot be seen easily- this is the answer. Even if you tape the lens it can see through. Just my thought.
