This week on Fast Charge,
Dom Preston,Alex Walker-Todd and
Mike Simon talk about the biggest phone news this week: the accidental X-ray camera in the
OnePlus 8 Pro, the plans to still hold IFA 2020 as a physical event, and the current state of the Google Pixel line in the wake of Marc Levoy’s departure.
The OnePlus 8 Pro has always had a photochromatic lens built into the phone (even if we called it pretty pointless
in our review) but it turns out it’s also a sort-of X-ray camera, and is even capable of seeing through thin clothes – not good. Meanwhile IFA 2020 is defying expectations to continue as a physical event in Berlin this September, and the
Pixel phones are in disarray after high-profile departures and some unexpected leaks.
