Korean manufacturer Samsung has decided to keep up with its competitor and also announced a mobile camera module with 5x optical zoom.
What is known
The sensor turned out very thin – only 5 mm. For comparison, this is less than a conventional module with a 2-fold approximation (about 6-7 mm). Such sizes were achieved thanks to the periscopic design. It, by the way, is similar to the similar in the Huawei P30 Pro and Oppo Reno 10x Zoom . No other details about the new module.
When to expect
Mass sensor production has already begun. Presumably, it will be the first to receive a Galaxy Note 10 phablet , although there is a small chance that Samsung will first test it on an A-series mid-range smartphone.
