OnePlus 8 Pro (review) is a full-fledged flagship device that packs in all of the features that the company skimped out on in previous generations. These include things like support for fast wireless charging, an IP rating for dust/water resistance, and a flagship-grade camera setup.
OnePlus 8 Pro packs in a 48MP Sony IMX689 primary sensor. The primary camera is accompanied by a 48MP ultra-wide sensor, an 8MP telephoto camera, and a new 5MP Color Filter camera.
OnePlus claims that the Color Filter camera is used for camera filters that can be applied to the final shot but that can also be achieved even without the Color Filter camera. This means that the sensor can only be used for infrared photography, using the new Photochrom mode on the OnePlus 8 Pro. The sensor can be used to see through some plastic objects.
If you’ve got a OnePlus 8 Pro and want to try it out for yourself, just open up the camera app, swipe over to the “Photochrom” color filter, and point it some black objects. Infrared sits right above visible light in the electromagnetic spectrum, and is sometimes referred to as “heat radiation”
