If there was one thing bigger than the hype of the flagship OnePlus 8 Pro, it was the controversy stirred up by a neat feature on the phone that apparently even the brand themselves either forgot about or ignored. The fourth color-filter camera sensor on the OnePlus 8 Pro allowed people to ‘see-through’ certain types of plastics when used with a particular filter via the OnePlus Camera app. Also Read - OnePlus 8 5G sale in India today: Price, offers, full specifications, and other details

However, upon the revelation of the feature, OnePlus decided to drop support for the feature, which by now was dubbed “X-ray vision” by publications across the globe. In a later report, it was revealed that OnePlus was only going to disable the feature in home-country China in the next HydrogenOS update. The brand then accidentally disabled the feature in global OxygenOS ROMs as well. Also Read - OnePlus 8 series Google One 100GB offer is for 3 months: Check details

However, with the latest OxygenOS 10.5.10 update for the OnePlus 8 Pro, the popular feature is back. The sensor was always there, however, OnePlus had removed the ‘Photochrom’ filter from the app which is necessary for the X-ray feature to work. The filter is back with the latest update.

Strangely enough, OnePlus did not mention the return of the filter in its lengthy changelog for the new OnePlus 8 Pro update. Even though the changelog mentions quite a few camera-related changes, the re-emergence of the Photochrom filter was silent. The latest update also enables other features including H.265 video recording support, May 2020 security patches, and brings some fixes to the OnePlus 8 Pro.
