What a downgrade.
And i'm just here waiting for a real flagship with 1-3 high quality cameras, an fm radio, a 3.5mm jack, micro sd expansion, no 5g, all the possible 2g,3g,4g bands, a body that's close to bullet proof in the oems bumper case, a humanly ratioed screen and not this cinema screen nonsense (really, who tf even buys 20:9 or 21:9 phones, go back to 17:9 - 18:9 and leave it there) and a comfortable screen width of 68-70mm, i don't care if it's amoled or lcd, heck i'd even preffer lcd, since you chinese cheeepos don't tend to brag about what technology, matrix or layers are using and lcds lost longer than oleds. Phones are becoming dumb to the point of where a 4 year old phone still looks good and could probably go another 4 years(htc leo anyone?)
2020 the year of downgrades
No telephoto + no audio jack = NO BUY. I disagree a lot too. I am very disappointed since they have also removed the audio jack. The telephoto camera is a lot more useful than a cheap macro camera. Very bad move. Well, discarded for me.
without a 12MP telephoto camera, I'm not considering any phone a "Flagship"!

They are downgrading the Reno series year by year. Next year it would be 32mp+5mp+1.3mp+0.3mp combination.
Anyone else find those macro and depth sensors infuriating? It's been proven many times that both are absolutely useless. Manufacturers can probably buy these sensors for 1$ per a bag of 10,000 and their only function is to fool the non-techy customer into thinking "more cameras = better cameras".
Personally I'd much rather have double sensor instead, more sensors means bigger camera module glass, which means higher chance of breaking even the useful cameras...
This is the year of the punch holes.
