There's a good chance we'll see a periscope-design 10x zoom smartphone camera from Chinese manufacturer OPPO at MWC this year. However, it looks like rival Huawei could follow soon after.
According to reports from people using engineering samples, Huawei's upcoming P-series flagship model, the P30 Pro, could come with a periscope zoom module for large optical magnification. The primary camera will likely use a new 6-series image sensor from Sony, possibly the 1/1.8" 38MP IMX607 model.
Its sister model, the P30, is said to keep the existing triple-camera setup of the current Mate 20 Pro.
The rumors also say that both phones will now feature an OLED display, insteaf of only the Pro version. This is necessitated by a move to optical in-display fingerprint readers. Both devices will be powered by Huawei's Kirin 980 chipset with 8GB of RAM on the standard model and 12GB on the Pro.
With its triple-cam models P20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro Huawei has released two of the best camera phones in 2018 and it looks like the company has no intentions to slow down. We'll know more in a few weeks time around MWC in Barcelona.
