In the last week has not stopped talking about the OnePlus 8 Pro and its camera capable of seeing under clothing or through certain plastic . A functionality capable of working thanks to its infrared sensor that beyond what you imagine takes time between various Xiaomi devices.
And it is that, thanks to the IR sensor of facial recognition that we find on the front of those of the POCOPHONE F1 and the Xiaomi Mi 8 , the « IR Camera » application available in the Play Store allows us to perform practically the same function of the OnePlus 8 Pro .
As we have read on Reddit , the application for these Xiaomi devices allows you to make use of the infrared front camera of the POCOPHONE F1 and Xiaomi MI 8 obtaining photographs as incredible as the following or even allowing us to see in the dark :
Of course, the result does not seem to be as advanced as that of OnePlus, since in Xiaomi devices it is not able to see under any type of plastic , but in those with less thickness. In addition, according to the comments, it is necessary to have ROOT access to access the infrared camera.
Unlike what happens in the OnePlus 8 Pro that the firm has had to remove this functionality from its systems for privacy reasons , in the case of the POCOPHONE F1 and Xiaomi Mi 8 it does not end up violating any type of regulation by joining the front camera and having to use a third-party application.
