OnePlus 8 Pro Camera Can SEE THROUGH CLOTHES!

An user of OnePlus 8 Pro showed the camera’s infrared sensor takes pictures of what underneath clothes, a Switch remote, and an Apple TV box

When OnePlus advertises its OnePlus 8 Pro, the company seems to forget about a potential selling points - X-ray vision. Well, actually not exactly what you are thinking of, but something really similar.

What some users discovered is the infrared sensor of OnePlus 8 Pro can see through some black materials.

Here is how you can test this claim if you have the phone. Open the camera app, go to “Photochrom” and point the camera at something black.

However, those who have tried this trick said it only works on the black cover that is already a little see-through under certain light conditions. Another user showed the camera’s infrared sensor takes pictures of what underneath a thin T-shirt, a Switch remote, and an Apple TV box.

OnePlus has said nothing about this new finding but here is the explanation of why OnePlus 8 Pro has this ability.

Since the phone features infrared sensors which collect radiation invisible to our eyes, the camera works similarly to thermal cameras and night vision goggles.

In the electromagnetic spectrum, infrared is right above visible light. Sometimes you may hear people call it heat radiation, named after the way humans feel it.

Infrared is everywhere in our surrounding world but since human’s naked eyes cannot see it, most of us do not pay much attention to it. For example, as we know, the Earth receives energy from the Sun, but the majority of it is infrared. 

The reason why some equipment can see through materials is infrared can go through them, an ability visible light does not have. And as our eyes can only perceive visible light, we are unable to see what the equipment can.

Modern phones are adopting infrared sensors so logically, their cameras can sometimes take pictures of what underneath certain materials.

This ability is not limited to OnePlus 8 Pro though, the TrueDepth snapper found on iPhones to scan your face with FaceID can also do it. If you have a jailbroken phone, you can hijack it to create a camera that can see through some materials. 

OnePlus might not think about this otherwise it has done something about the see-through-clothing problem as this ability can cause the company a slew of trouble regarding privacy.

Unbox Therapy’s video confirms that OnePlus 8 Pro’s camera can see through clothes but under certain conditions.

If the problem gets worse, OnePlus may have to roll out a software update to somehow restrict the use of the infrared sensor for inappropriate purposes.

A similar incident happened in the 1990s with Sony recalling a line of camcorder with night vision that can see through people’s clothes.
