OnePlus messed up.

The OnePlus 8 Pro comes fitted with a colour filter "X-Ray" camera, and its caused people privacy concerns and has been suspended in China - Whoops.

    So what. I have a $70 Camcorder that can do this much better. Commercial NVG's can do this really well. TBH my camcorder had a recall, but I'm not going bother.

    In my opinion it's a business strategy "all publicity is good publicity". The popularity of the brand would significantly increase as they did something never done before or it wasn't expected. In a nutshell oneplus pulled a kim Kardashian and we all know who she is and what she is today.

    Does that mean that the airport security see through clothing all the time, is that not a privacy breach too? This is can't "see" anything really

    I hope people don't think it will take HQ infrared shots: theres a lot more to it. It's a gimmick in the hands of a non-professional.

    I actually think that OnePlus really dashed the whole thing with this camera feature and having that extra bump without the camera functioning is a big mess. This leaked message will actually fend off potential buyers.

    <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="159">2:39</a> This is what 80% of the population does when the mind goes into a blank mode in public, They feel the need to look like they are doing something but they might not have credit or internet, or nothing new is on social media that has already been read 3 times, the other interesting thing I see is people pretending to be on the phone in public, just holding a phone against their ear I've even seen people do <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="163">2:43</a> without realising what they are doing
