The OnePlus 8 Pro only launched 2 weeks ago, and has just run into a major issue.

The device features a special 4th ColorFilter camera which is sensitive to infra-red light, and this means the camera can easily peer through thing plastic, resulting in images like this, captured by Max Winebach from XDA-Dev.

Of course, if you can see through a Nest camera you can also see through clothes, as AndroidPit confirmed.

UnboxedTherapy also put the claim to the test with the same results:

Given that OnePlus must have known this was likely when removing the infra-red filter in the 4th camera, one has to wonder what the company was thinking.
