The OnePlus 8 Pro’s color filter gives the phone X-ray vision


By all accounts, the OnePlus 8 Pro is a pretty decent handset, but it seems that OnePlus has included a rather neat trick in the phone that we have not seen in many other devices: pseudo X-ray vision. Yup, if you have the OnePlus 8 Pro, fire up the camera and launch the Color Filter mode.

From there, it seems that the camera will be able to penetrate through relatively thin objects to see right through it. This is because in Color Filter mode, the OnePlus 8 Pro is capable of processing infrared light to add an effect to the photo, and users of the phone on Reddit quickly discovered that this gave it X-ray vision as well.

This allows the camera to see through thin plastics that do not have IR shielding, and before you get too excited, no, it cannot see through clothing. We’re not sure if this was an intended feature for the camera or a happy coincidence, but either way it does make for some pretty cool effects if you want to check it out.

The concept of using IR isn’t exactly new, but this is a fun gimmick that will keep you occupied for a couple of minutes.
