X Ray Camera on OnePlus 8 Pro ?

There's been a lot of buzz regarding a particular type of filter which when used can see through some objects and it was none other than the flagship One Plus 8 Pro. Check out the video below which proves the same :

As it turns out it's not exactly "X Ray" Cameras that the Oneplus 8 Pro loads , but commonly used infra red sensors. There's a new IR Filter option in the Camera App of One Plus 8 Pro that turns on this feature/fault. If you do have a OnePlus 8 Pro, try the "Coloration" Filter and point the camera towards any plastic object like in the video.  With most smartphones packing 4-6 cameras on a single chassis , one of the module is prominently used for depth sensing. The IR (Infra Red) camera sensor is precisely used for the same. This feature though looks cool and right out of a scifi movie does raise questions of Privacy. Sony had faced the flak for similar feature in the 1990's in a Camcorder (Feels like ages doesn't it ? )Now, this X Ray Vision is not only limited to OnePlus 8 Pro, all phones that house this IR camera sensor module for "Depth Sensing" would in fact be able to see through certain objects. While the commercial IR cameras are used for heat/temperature sensing , they do Not pose any privacy concerns as they just show the Heat Map of the body and not the actual internals. These are being used in the modern days to scan people in public for the CoronaVirus symptoms.

Do you think features like this X Ray Vision would cause issues to the already under scrutiny OnePlus ? Let us know in the comments!
Here's a video from the Retro Times of a Sony Camcorder for which Sony had to retract the IR Filter  :

Don't think about Buying Tablet in 2020! They are going to be Dead!

Remember the time when the "mobile" phones were not "smart" yet and had this really compact form factor with durability such that they can only be destroyed by some natural calamity ? Yep, those times were not far from today ..just a decade ago and we didn't have to think about the phone falling off a cliff, or catching fire or trampled under a car or drowned into a sea! Then there was this highly delicate and expensive loner phone called the "iPhone" which required such extreme care, for you wouldn't be able to afford its maintenance! This phone was one of the first ones to start a trend of increasing the display size over the year and that led to hilarious memes as below Being mocked by their competition only strengthened their move and Apple went onto release the iPhone 11 Pro Max or Max Pro (whatever!) which was 6.5 inch long and was close enough to the prediction in the memes. This time it wasn't getting mocked but was

How to Pair Huawei Watch GT2 with Any Headphones within 1 min - the Perfect Hack

The Smartwatch and wearables industry has seen the biggest spike in 2019-2020 time frame. Starting off with Apple Airpods to may other brands trying to mimic the design and provide low cost alternatives the users have graciously welcomed each and every product in the line. There is a fan base for the neckband type, another base for the "TWS" (Truly Wireless) Earbuds and there's altogether separate base for the Wireless Headphones category. Then we saw an upsurge in the health monitoring wearable devices which was popularized by Fitbit and then in the last couple of years by Apple and Xiaomi. The current market has many players and there's no clear winner in terms of market share for the smartwatches / health monitoring wearables. Huawei has somehow missed the train and joined in late for the party. But as they say in Hindi - " Der aaye Durust Aaye .. "  which means - Came in Later But in a mint condition .. Huawei launched its first smartwatch the

Sony Xperia 1 II - the Lazarus of Smartphones

Well, well, well... Look who's back on the Street ! He's tall ..he's strong..he's Loaded ! That's exactly what the Xperia 1 II is all about ! Sony can well be termed as the "Lazarus"  for coming back from the dead - quite literally. It was standing against all the odds with likes of Samsung, Apple, One Plus in Premium and Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, Huawei in the Mid Segments, Sony had no where to land and with this particular model they have reaffirmed their faith in their Premium segment and its definitely Working ! I know the naming is weird (seriously who names their product "one" "two" ) Check out their official Video: Credits : Sony Youtube Channel Credits : NDTV Mind you , this is the first smartphone with a 21:9 4K HDR OLED 6.5" Display with 90 Hz Refresh Rate - let that sink in. Sony has used its experience in its Television Display tech and dropped it straight up on the Xperia 1 II. With the notch nicely hid
