Smartphone manufacturer OnePlus has announced they will be sending out a software update to temporarily disable the Color Filter function on their 8 Pro phone after users complained it allowed them to see through some clothing.
The phone's Color Filter camera has a special function that uses the 5-megapixel infrared camera to render photos, creating interesting creative effects and allowing the user to sometimes see through things like the plastic casing around electronics. The problem is that a lot of clothing is relatively transparent to infrared light as well, as you can see below.
Obviously, this has led to some serious privacy concerns from users, which in turn caused the company to temporarily disable the feature until a solution to the privacy concerns can be found. This will be done by pushing a software update to users within the coming week. It is not clear how the company plans to re-enable the camera's usage while eliminating the privacy concerns, but for the time being, users will not have access to the images shot by that specific camera, though the phone's others cameras will continue to function normally.
