OnePlus Camera 4.0.267 on the OnePlus 8 series adds video filters and prepares to add a “Smart Scene Enhancement” toggle

OnePlus recently rolled out a major OxygenOS update for the OnePlus 8 (review) and OnePlus 8 Pro (review). As per the official changelog, the update added several new features to the OnePlus Camera app, including support for H.265 HEVC codec for videos, a new auto ultra-wide-angle lens feature, optimizations for the click animation, and improvements for camera stability. What the changelog didn’t mention, however, is that the update also included a new set of “video filters” for the video mode in the camera app.

The OnePlus Camera app version 4.0.267 recently rolled out for the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro in India with the OxygenOS 10.5.8/10.5.10 update. The app brings a new set of video filters — Vivid, Night, Vintage, B&W, and Yummy — that you can use while recording videos on the device.

The filters are supported on all video resolution except for the 4K 60Hz setting and can be accessed by tapping on the filter icon in the top right corner of the app.

An APK teardown can often predict features that may arrive in a future update of an application, but it is possible that any of the features we mention here may not make it in a future release. This is because these features are currently unimplemented in the live build and may be pulled at any time by the developers in a future build.

<string name="settings_smart_scene_enhancement_description">Auto enhance image based on scene detection</string>
<string name="settings_smart_scene_enhancement_title">Smart scene enhancement</string>
<string name="settings_smart_scene_enhancement_toast">Scene enhancement icon will pop up when triggered</string>

Additionally, a teardown of the OnePlus Camera app reveals that the company is preparing to add a new “Smart Scene Enhancement” toggle in the camera settings. While the Smart Scene Enhancement feature is already active in the current version of the camera app, it’s invisible to the user and cannot be disabled. The newly added strings of code suggest that a future update for the app will bring a new indicator in the viewfinder that will show users when the smart scene enhancement feature is active and a new toggle in the app settings that will let users disable the feature completely.
