There's been an outsize and protracted hubbub over the OnePlus 8 Pro's color filter camera. It let users see through some thin plastics and other materials, including certain types of cloth — leading to worries about it granting "X-ray vision." It was never particularly effective at seeing through clothing, but nevertheless, OnePlus is rolling out a patch to stem potential abuse by limiting the camera's functionality.
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."
