They better make sure the phone that will come with it will be able to record video using this tele cam from the get go. Unlike their Reno 10x Zoom that can only do that after more than a year of waiting...
If everyone was you, we would be using single core processes with 2mp cameras today!
New sensor seems very jagged edge-y.
I'd rather have a 48+mp module with 135mm fixed 5x zoom and better overall image quality than a zoom lens. To me 5x zoom seems more useful than 3x zoom. For 3x I can either get closer to my subject and snap a picture with primary camera, or walk back and use 5x camera.
If I want more, I'll just use my main camera.
BigDisplay, 18 Aug 2020Holy lord, once again and as usual i must admit... New China mobile with innovation.
All othe... moreHold your big mouth.
What did china do to mobile innovation ?
I don't see anything. All of their parts are from foreign companies, mainly from Japan, SK, US and EU.
Haven't you learnt from Huawei ?
Or do you need ban for all Chinese brands ?
See that Samsung, optical zoom is the only thing that matters. Cropping and interpolating an image to 100x is dumb
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2020Because current periscope is fixed FL + digital zoom.
Not variable FL like Asus had.
Sure not commercially
We already know however that this was coming since the Vivo apex 2020
Even then this is NOT the same bulky old garbage quality lenses in the Asus and old sammy

Lol article clearly states NEXT GENERATION
Which implies that this is an improvement over EXISTING technology ...
And people still out here shouting about who did it first ,and advertising Asus and Samsung blah blah blah
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2020It is not small battery. It is the fact ppl spend more time on the phone than necessary. So true. Im guilty. Years way back my samsung galaxy note (1) can last more than a day before i get to charge it. This time at least 4000mah is needed
Holy lord, once again and as usual i must admit... New China mobile with innovation.
All other companies outside China, could really learn something here.
Like the Pixel sh.. phones, only innovates prices.
The new reality is not China copying here, now its US, while their dictator try stop the innovation crusade from China... other brands to.

Crystal was sold even in USA. Also Sony ZL with front cam inside bottom bezel.
Hmm they did do it. I mean i wasn't expecting this to be the first, but i dint think anyone is claiming that oppo is the first
Dometalican, 18 Aug 2020So...who's providing the lens for this? If it's Sony, paired with their 48MP Regular... moreSony sells sensor, not the lenses.
Almost all brands get lenses from unknown chinese companies.
Huawei does not have leica lenses, local company supplies. Leica just gives their okay to quality.
There are companies like LG, Zeiss etc that built the modules (sensor, lenses, OIS etc) for cellphone makers.
notafanboy, 18 Aug 2020doesn't matter who did it first. What matters is who did it best.It will do exactly the same job.
Variable focal length.
AngelJaimes, 18 Aug 2020Really? Please semd me link to when they didAsus Zenfone Zoom = periscope with real zoom.
notafanboy, 18 Aug 2020doesn't matter who did it first. What matters is who did it best.There's no who did it best cos as time goes by, it will be improved on. Who did it first is more important as long as it is usable enough so people can get to use it to capture memories.
So...who's providing the lens for this? If it's Sony, paired with their 48MP Regular and Wide will make the Find X3 Pro (no doubt that's on the way) a killer camera phone. Shame they can't figure out how to add wireless charging, large battery cell, or headphone jack/2nd Type-C port....
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2020Asus did years ago, but of course oppo or huawei will get all credits. doesn't matter who did it first. What matters is who did it best.
AngelJaimes, 18 Aug 2020Really? Please semd me link to when they didhttps://www.asus.com/Phone/ZenFone-Zoom-ZX551ML/PixelMaster/
Here you go. Do bear in mind that the Zenfone Zoom was a 2015 smartphone. You can find the spec sheet from this website.
