OnePlus 8 Pro’s "X-ray vision" feature will be temporarily disabled, company apologizes

OnePlus 8 Pro’s

Between a gorgeous 6.78-inch Fluid AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a blazing fast Snapdragon 865 processor coupled with up to 12 gigs of memory, solid battery life, and exceptional camera performance, there's certainly a lot to love about the 5G-enabled OnePlus 8 Pro that's also expensive but not quite prohibitively priced. The apology letter doesn't say when that will happen. Why is it happening?

Just in case you missed it, several OnePlus 8 Pro users had recently discovered the camera's X-ray ability when using the colour filter feature on its app. The plastic has to be thin for the camera trick to work, and the color filter will not let you see through clothes like you expect. The company has equipped the 8 Pro a quad-camera setup that gets hardware and software to battle it out with the heavyweights. And that's precisely the kind of privacy problem OnePlus is probably trying to avoid. "In order to eliminate the impact on user privacy under possible extreme circumstances and eliminate everyone 's concerns, we chose to temporarily disable the filter function through software upgrades".

OnePlus 8 Pro is the latest flagship of OnePlus.

The brand ensures that the update without the filter will be available very soon, next week in China. It has more powerful camera sensors, and can produce better results overall.

OnePlus 8 comes in three vraiants - 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB, and 12GB + 256GB at Rs 41,999, Rs 44,999, and Rs 49,999 respectively.

The sale starts at 2 pm IST and those interested can follow think link here, to buy the OnePlus 8 once the sales begin. However, these are not stable builds, meaning you're likely to face a few issues while using your phone. Despite the fact that the organisation has focused on that the "Photochrom" channel can't see through thick materials, it apologised for making security concerns and causing inconveniences for OnePlus clients and different netizens, Abacus News reports.
