oneplus 7 pro dont have pocket mode same like oneplus 6T?
I have the same question. My 6T had a very useful pocket mode and the new 7 Pro does not. Today I noticed something fundamentally wrong with the lack of implementation of said mode and the pop-up camera. I had my 7 Pro on my pocket and my girlfriend video called me using Google Duo, the camera popped out inside my pocket while receiving the call notification. Nothing bad happened in this case because I had loose pants on, but what about a scenario when someone has tight jeans or something?... If the camera pops out because of an incoming video call on a "tight jeans/pants scenario" it could result in camera mechanism damage.
I'm sure OnePlus can come up with a way that a pocket-mode (sensor data, AI, misc algorighms) can be implemented on the 7 Pro to delay the pop-up camera trigger until the phone gets taken out of the pocket. This would be one very useful OTA patch/update.
The full on pocket mode is not here yet (I reported only in the feedback section), but the 9.5.8 update fixed popping up the camera when somebody video calls you. When you have the screen off the camera does not pop up and you need to swipe for it to do so.
Pocket mode is active defaultly, but not work when power button is pressed. It is not enough.
The screen turns on with touching the screen too. Try putting it upside down and blocking the proximity sensor. It still responds. It shouldn't.
I cannot reproduce. sensor is located with front camera.
No it's not, otherwise the screen wouldn't turn off when listening to WhatsApp audios, or making calls.
I want to buy a oneplus 7 pro but if the pocket mode does not work this will be a very serious problem, it would give me problems all the time, right?
I'm guessing it will be fixed with a future update.
For now, you can force pocket mode using third party apps.

Search "Pocket Mode" in the Google play store.
to be less annoying I've disabled the double tap to wake up and the music controls while the screen is off... sometimes the music was starting to play out of the blue...
