In our previous post, we mentioned that OnePlus was going to fix the OnePlus 8 Pro’s x-ray camera through an update. And apparently, this isn’t it. The company accidentally released an update that disabled the feature for a limited number of OnePlus 8 Pro owners.

Last May, it was discovered that the OnePlus 8 Pro has an IR camera for its Photochrom filter that allowed it to see through some materials like plastic and clothes.

Recently, OnePlus accidentally pushed an update to some users that reportedly disabled the Photochrom filter. While it has been out for China users, they had no plans of removing it for global units.

The company also added that they will re-enable the feature for those affected in a future update. At this point, I guess we have to wait and see how OnePlus will fix the Photochrom filter.
