This makes it less likely that this is the sensor. As I wrote before, mathematically the 20 megapixel resolution would be contradictory.

"Once we spend more time with the phone we'll be able to tell you how that compares to those 90Hz and 120Hz panels."
I'll save you the time, thats a "feature" you will turn off faster than you can test it
being different for the sake of being different often ends up in garbage like this

You can clearly see on screen when digital zoom is being used for video.
Do not forget Zeiss is almost 200 y.o company. Making proper lens elements for 70mm phone camera is no big deal for them.

No, it isn't. Regarding the noise and regarding the resolution you would get the same result as long as the resulting megapixel count is the same. Smartphones crop the main camera in low-light conditions because a 2x crop of a 12 megapixel camera sensor is the same thing as using a 3 megapixel sensor. The low megapixel count helps in extreme low-light conditions due to read nose.

It is so much more difficult to create a good quality lens at a longer focal length while having this small of a camera module. The 54mm lens with crop would have a far more reliable af system and corner sharpness compared to a 70mm. As smartphones like these start adopting dedicated camera characteristics, it is time to start learning about lenses. In photography, the lens is by far more important than the sensor

I don't know where you got that information from, but so far there's no UWA camera on a phone that comes even close to the one on Mate 30 Pro/P40 Pro in terms of pure image quality.

Ask Qualcomm to make CPU that supports 4K90 and 4K120. Because they are all capped at 4K 60Hz since SD810.
Go buy Find X2 Pro and use 65W. I doubt it will have more than 3500mAh by november.

After seeing some samples from its telephoto camera I can confidently say that they look nothing like an image captured by Tetracell sensor.
The app is simply misreporting the sensor name, plain and simple.

No surprise those Quadbayer at full resolution still look much worse even if downscaled to same resolution of binned mode.
Cropping from 20MP/54mm will easily look worse than using 12MP/70mm. Considering the tiny sensor, it would be pretty pixelated. Same reason is useless Sony having digital zoom up to 24mm for ultra wide if this is same FL of main camera.
Main camera does 20fps AF/AE. While the other two just 10fps AF/AE.
If ultra wide cant do beyond 10, there is no way the telephoto could do same with almost twice the resolution.

Not sure why you say it's slow, 50% in 30 minutes is plenty fast if you get the 21w charger. Sony's Battery care lets you charge over night, so you don't have to worry about forgetting to charge.
How is UFS3.1 a must have? Huawei's UFS3.0 beat Samsungs 3.1 - No point having high bandwidth when the bottle neck is elsewhere.

Deal breakers are slow chargers, short battery life, no 120hz refresh rate, not ufs 3.1, ugly notches, unsymmetrical front design. Xperia 1 ll would have been perfect if it charges like p30 pro at least, 120 hz refresh rate, and ufs 3.1 and bigher battery capacity at least 5000 mah. Even if it costs more, i'd gladly buy it.

I do not know if this is what I think. It is from Gaming Enhancer. Looks like you can blck battery from charging while gaming, like a laptop powered by cable when you take battery off.
