Meant for lighting effects and filters OnePlus offered the Color Filter camera on the OnePlus 8 Pro to enhance images with lighting effects and filters.

As per the basis of a machine translation of the Weibo post, which is originally in Chinese, OnePlus will push a software update for the OnePlus 8 Pro within a week to disable the Color Filter camera.

Also, it suggests that despite having a quad rear camera setup, the OnePlus 8 Pro would only be able to use the three rear camera sensors and drop the Color Filter camera for the time being.

OnePlus 8 Pro users will receive an update that will temporarily disable the Color Filter camera, OnePlus announced through a post published on Weibo.

By temporarily disabling the Color Filter camera, OnePlus is somehow reducing the operational count of OnePlus 8 Pro rear cameras from four to three — at least for the time being.
