Last week, we came across a rather strange development, with the OnePlus For 8 Pro, 5MP camera colour filter in front of the camera. It turned out to be able to make it by means of a fixed set of objects, and clothes. Of course, this quickly led to a series of questions that will be answered by the OnePlus, as it will reportedly turn off the color filter in a future update.
OnePlus’s official statement on Weibo (translation machine)
The lengthy statement comes from the brand’s official Weibo profile, but it does not specify when the update comes. To sum up, the 5 MEGAPIXELS Color Filter module, I was able to use materials, such as the lack of an IR filter, which makes it very sensitive to that type of light. Still, this only worked on certain materials and in certain lighting conditions, and the users have to be at a certain distance from the subject.
OnePlus’ Color Filter mode
OnePlus is also confident that it will be in a position to bring back the color filter of the camera’s functionality, in the future, once the underlying issue has been resolved.
