OnePlus messed up.
The OnePlus 8 Pro comes fitted with a colour filter "X-Ray" camera, and its caused people privacy concerns and has been suspended in China - Whoops.

    I think it’s a great way to get your name out there, all the media is writing about it. The reason to keep it so hidden I feel is to prevent an outbreak of those kinds of pictures so that they don’t have to go into damage control. IMO it looks like a marketing stunt.

    Honestly anyone who already bought the phone shouldn’t have anything they’ve paid for be taken away. If they want to change something on how it is and sell it cheaper then sure, but I think it just comes down to the fact that just because you have some type of power doesn’t mean you should abuse it

  • ewmegoolies

    Sony did this in the 90's yawn. Got their camcorder banned then retooled with a filter... That everyone promptly removed. works best on wet blue swimsuits

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the camera was originally supposed to help with night photography. Infrared cameras are often used with home security cameras to get data that is then either fed directly to the storage system or combined with the filtered RGB sensor to allow for good quality video in both the day and night. It would make sense from the perspective of making the OP 8 Pro more appealing than other flagships, since they often lack in night photography. But like you mention, they probably realized later on that this had huge privacy concerns and shouldn’t be promoted.

    Actually if you take the remote ir blaster in a dark place and see it closely with your eyes, you can see the infrared actually. Yes, our eyes can see infrared but not clearly.

    Oneplus add a cool feature but try to bury it as much as possible in the camera setting and make sure nobody realized it exist. Meanwhile, the whole world literally focus only on that feature. The next thing you know it is banned in China.

    So some stranger in the airport could see me naked but I can't use something with a much less powerful camera with the same feature? I trust myself and not some weirdo in the airport. And yes, this is a feature that I would be interested in. If I had the money I would buy it

    A lot of actual issues in professional photography have to deal with lighting and the light spectrum and different colors that you can take with an actual camera and and plenty of people who've won awards for taking pictures in infrared pictures framed them and have won awards in contest and that's one example infrared camera

  • Melo

    To all manufacturers: YOU DON'T NEED TO BRING SOMETHING NEW every year. We get that innovation on today's smartphones has reached it's peak. Work on next generation devices. So instead of trying to invent new gimmicks, what about: - releasing phones every 2-3 years and not every year? - work on new materials, or improving existing materials - for better internals? - work on making phones extremely durable. Devices got so flashy and good looking but they break when they fall from just a meter! I'd rather overpay a very durable but average looking device, than a easy-to-break wonderful looking phone. And yes, what's the point in buying a 1000 euro device and then putting a 5 euro plastic cover on it?! - work on freaking battries dammit! manufacturers only work on small and efficient processors, instead of creating innovative batteries that last a week, like mobile phones did 15-20 years ago. - you can't price the same old way higher and higher, the market stopped responding to that, even Apple started to prioritize its lower priced phones. So invent something REALLY useful and then you can allow yourself to price it high. You can't just price old BS with new crappy gimmicks that high. Inflation is not 10%, it's 1-2% in most markets.
