OnePlus 10 Pro camera system could include 5x periscope zoom lens for the first time

OnePlus 10 Pro could feature a 5x periscope zoom lens. This is the first time that the company will include a periscope sensor on its flagship phones.

Highlights
  • OnePlus 10 Pro may feature a periscope lens with 5x zoom.
  • This will be the first time that a OnePlus flagship will ship with a periscope sensor.
  • OnePlus could continue its partnership with Hasselblad and its integration with OPPO should help with the software optimisation.

OnePlus 10 is expected to be the company’s upcoming flagship series for 2022. The series should launch around March-April next year considering the OnePlus 9 launch timeline. The company had already confirmed there won’t be a OnePlus 9T and a OnePlus 9T Pro, but speculations are rife there will be a OnePlus 9 RT and it will launch later this month. We also know that the OnePlus 10 series will be the first to ship with the new unified OS. Now, a OnePlus 10 Pro leak has popped up on the internet. According to the tip, the company will finally introduce periscope zoom on the upcoming OnePlus 10 Pro.

OnePlus 10 Pro camera specifications tipped

OnePlus 10 Pro could launch early next year. According to a tipster on Weibo, the flagship will come with a periscope lens that will support 5x optical zoom. However, it isn’t clear what sensor the company will be using. If it turns out to be true, OnePlus will be finally catching up with other flagship phones that offer a periscope lens. So far, OnePlus phones have only featured telephoto lenses with up to 3x zoom. OnePlus could continue its partnership with Hasselblad and its integration with OPPO should help with the software optimisation.

OPPO has launched a few phones with periscope camera sensors, including the Find X and  Reno Series. OPPO earlier this year has teased its next-gen periscope lens with an adjustable focal length of 85mm-135mm. OPPO’s experience in this regard should spill over to OnePlus phones seeing as how the two brands are closer than ever before. Other details about the OnePlus 10 specifications remain a mystery. We speculate the flagship phones will come with next-gen Snapdragon chipset, Android 12-based unified OS, 5G network connectivity, and probably a similar design as the predecessor. Either way, we should learn more details going forward. Stick around.
