OnePlus 10 Pro will not get a periscopic zoom

It is rumored that zooming in with the OnePlus 10 Pro while shooting is only possible 3.3 times, thanks to optical zoom. That means that the company again chooses not to use a periscopic zoom camera in the flagship.

Read on after the ad.

‘OnePlus 10 Pro zooming without a periscopic lens’

We will only see the OnePlus 10 Pro next year, but in the meantime all kinds of rumors have appeared. At the beginning of November, renders of the alleged device surfaced, where we see three cameras on the back. It was also mentioned at the time that the device would have a periscopic zoom camera to bring objects even closer.

According to a well-known Chinese tasty, that is not true. Through Weibo, the Chinese alternative to Twitter, he says. There is in fact a ‘normal telephoto lens’ on board, as OnePlus has been using for years. This allows you to optically zoom up to 3.3 times without loss of quality. If you use a mix of optical and digital zoom, you can get objects up to 30 times closer.

All in all, OnePlus does not score the most points here, because the current OnePlus 9 Pro has the same zoom range. The OnePlus 8 Pro could use up to three times optical zoom. There are several smartphones on the market with a larger zoom range. For example, there are the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, Huawei P50 Pro and Google Pixel 6 Pro that do a lot better.

More about the OnePlus 10 Pro

The screen of the 10 Pro gets curved screen edges. We expect the latest processor from manufacturer Qualcomm on board, along with a large amount of working and storage memory. Specifications about the other two rear cameras are still unknown.

The front camera is incorporated behind the screen and we also expect a large battery. It is said to be fully charged in just 20 minutes. That would be because this happens with 125 Watts. The current OnePlus Nord 2 and OnePlus 9 Pro charge with ‘only’ 65 Watt.

Finally, the device runs standard on Android 12. It was already known that this is a mix of two shells that we already know. From 2022, we will see a mix of OxygenOS (OnePlus) and ColorOS (Oppo) on OnePlus devices.
