The Chinese company OnePlus has decided to temporarily deactivate the photochromic filter of the camera of the OnePlus 8 Pro smartphone because in this mode, the camera can shine through certain objects (this became widely known last week).

OnePlus noted that this method of applying a photochromic filter, which allows the smartphone camera to fix infrared radiation invisible to the eye, was not provided by the developers – the filter is designed to create beautiful landscape photos and also provides a unique texture effect when taking black and white photos.

OnePlus believes that the translucent effect manifests itself under specific conditions, but it can still violate user privacy, so they decided to turn off the filter. The corresponding software update will be released in the coming days, and in the future, the developers will make the photochromic filter, but the smartphone camera will no longer be able to shine through objects.

Note that OnePlus 8 Pro received a record display of 6.78 inches with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a resolution of 3168 * 1440 pixels. The device operates on the basis of the eight-core Snapdragon 865 processor and supports 5G networks. The smartphone’s RAM is 8 or 12 GB, and the integrated RAM – 128 or 256 GB. The device’s housing is protected from dust and humidity according to the IP68 standard, and the battery capacity of 4510 mAh supports fast wireless charging, which allows you to charge the battery in two in 30 minutes.

The OnePlus 8 Pro main camera includes a 48-megapixel main module, a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle module, an 8-megapixel telephoto module with triple zoom and a 5-megapixel auxiliary module. The front camera of the smartphone has a resolution of 16 megapixels and is located in the hole of the screen.

The device went on sale on April 24. OnePlus 8 Pro costs $ 899 for the version with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of main memory and $ 999 for the version with 12 and 256 GB of memory.
