OnePlus 8 Pro's color filter mode won't be disabled after all (except in China), but will receive changes

OnePlus has announced that it will temporarily disable the "color filter" camera on the 8 Pro in a future update, but only the Chinese version of the phone running HydrogenOS will be affected. The camera, which is augmented with its ability to gather infrared light, was able to see through materials like certain plastics and even some kinds of cloth. The functionality will apparently return in the future when OnePlus can limit "other functionality that may be of concern."

OnePlus 8 Pro's color filter camera makes thin plastics and other materials transparent

OnePlus 8 Pro's color filter camera makes thin plastics and other materials transparent

The OnePlus 8 Pro comes with a fun extra "color filter camera" that processes infrared light in addition to visible wavelengths. With the help of some post-processing, it creates stunning and weird false-color images. That's not all there is to it, though. IR light is essentially electromagnetic radiation capable of penetrating certain materials other lightwaves can't, so the camera can be used for a neat party trick: It lets you see through some thin plastics and a few other materials.

OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro update improves camera 'dirt detection,' no black crush fix yet

OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro update improves camera 'dirt detection,' no black crush fix yet

While otherwise outstanding, OnePlus’s latest flagship pair was shipped with some software bugs and display-related issues, as pointed out in our reviews. The company has so far fixed a few of those initial hiccups via a couple of pre- and post-release updates. While we're still waiting on a few fixes, a new OxygenOS update is rolling out to both the 8 and 8 Pro, bringing along a handful of general fixes and improvements — though the so-called "black crush" screen problem remains as-is.

OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro official US pricing

OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro official US pricing

The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro were announced earlier this month, and they sport some decidedly luxurious specs, like 5G and the latest Snapdragon 865 in both models and 30-watt wireless charging and IP68 water resistance in the Pro. That's all well and good, but you may be wondering how OnePlus managed to fit in all that tech and keep its trademark "flagship killer" pricing. The answer: it didn't. While competitive, the OnePlus 8 series has dropped all pretense of being a budget offering, starting at $699 for the lowest-spec non-Pro model.

OnePlus 8 Pro review, two weeks later: Better with time, but keep an eye out for some issues

OnePlus 8 Pro review, two weeks later: Better with time, but keep an eye out for some issues

The OnePlus 8 Pro has some big shoes to fill, following-up on the success of last year's 7 Pro. At $230 more, though, it's hard to call it a successor — the days of flagship "killing" are done now that OnePlus phones can cost over $900. This is a new era for the company, and with all the crazy prices we've seen on 5G phones so far, a new world for smartphones in general. It's "just" a flagship, but the OnePlus 8 Pro is the phone to buy right now.

OnePlus 8 Pro OxygenOS 10.5.5 update brings partial fix for 'green-tint' screen issue, plus touchscreen sensitivity tweaks

OnePlus 8 Pro OxygenOS 10.5.5 update brings partial fix for 'green-tint' screen issue, plus touchscreen sensitivity tweaks

As OnePlus promised just days ago, yet more updates for its latest pair of phones are now rolling out. Unlike the last couple of pre-release updates, which had near-identical changelogs, this one delivers a handful of much-appreciated fixes, including some un-named "display effect" optimizations and camera improvements. For the 8 Pro, it also brings better touch rejection along the edges of the touchscreen. But most importantly, in our testing, the 8 Pro's update delivers at least a partial fix for the so-called "green-tint" complaints.
