    I'm getting my 7 pro today and i have a question regarding the pop camera.
    I see reports that getting a video call will popup the camera even when the receiver did not answer it.
    I'm guessing that's a bug but that raised the question.

    Is there a global setting to disable the front facing camera to popup completely?.

    A great question & glad you asked it! If the OnePlus 7 Pro were in a pocket, or backpack, or heaven forbid, a drawer, the pocket-mode should be automatically enabled and that alone should prevent the pop-up camera mechanism from executing. Are you worried that if the phone is laying on your desk that the camera will still automatically pop-up and then auto-answer? Regardless, I don't think having auto-answer for video or normal calls is a good idea...

    Pocket-mode? Is there a pocket-mode on Oneplus 7 Pro?
    Because the pocket-mode triggered only when front camera is blocked on older oneplus devices.
    So at Oneplus 7 pro there can be no pocket mode, because the camera is inside the phone.

    pocket mode comes from the proximity sensor next to the camera, not the camera.

    Oh sorry, didn't know that. I can't see a hole or something like that on my 1+5T, maybe it's integrated?

    This could help.

    Set the permission of the camera for WhatsApp
    1. On your Home Screen, press and hold the WhatsApp icon.

    2. Tap [App Info] > [Permissions].

    3. Toggle to disable [Camera].

    Thanks for the post. I also has same concern as my front cam is popping up when I get video call. I don't think there is a pocket mode as the camera is popping up even when the phone is pocket. Could someone please reply if there is a solution for this?

    I don't want to disable camera access to the WhatsApp. Thanks!

    at the moment the camera popping up when an app calls it for an incoming call is not covered in any mode. Believe OnePlus are working on a solution.
