One of the main curiosities of the new OnePlus 8 Pro, the flagship product of the Chinese company at the time, was the filter called color filter which allows you to “see” through objects made of particular materials such as plastics and metals.
After the discovery and first amazements by the tech world, OnePlus had made it known that it would removed functionality with an upcoming software update. Later it had emerged that the removal would only affect the version Chinese of the OnePlus software, the HydrogenOS. The affair ended, at least temporarily, with another surprise: the color filter has been removed also for the Indian version of the OxygenOS for OnePlus 8 Pro.
OnePlus has just released a new software update for Indian users, which refers to the build 10.5.9.IN11DA: as you can see from screenshots present in the gallery below, the changelog clearly indicates that the filter has been temporarily removed to give time to the development team of implement adjustments. No indication has been provided regarding which type of adjustments OnePlus refers to. His return would still be expected to June.
We reiterate that the update is being distributed exclusively for Indian users. So, at least for the moment, the removal of the color filter does not affect European users and consequently the Italian ones.
