The OnePlus 10 Professional could not have a periscope zoom digital camera

TL; DR

  • A new leak suggests that the OnePlus 10 Pro won’t have a periscope camera.
  • That means, in theory, you shouldn’t expect great zoom quality for long distances.

The OnePlus 10 Pro apparently leaked earlier this month, thanks to frequent speaker Steve Hemmerstoffer showing off a phone with a pretty interesting camera hump (see above). The case shows three cameras, and it looks like we’ve leaked more information about one of these shooters.

Weibo-Tipster Digital Chat Station has claimed that the OnePlus 10 Pro is equipped with a “normal” telephoto lens. They add that this could have 3.3x optical zoom and 30x digital zoom.

3.3x optical zoom does not automatically mean that a phone has mediocre long-range zoom capabilities. For example, the Huawei P50 Pro uses a 64MP 3.5X camera that seems to deliver great 10X shots. However, the leaker claims in the comments that the OnePlus 10 Pro won’t have a high-resolution telecamera – not a good sign.

This wouldn’t be the first time a OnePlus Pro flagship has done without a periscope camera, as the 2022 model would follow in the footsteps of the OnePlus 9 Pro and last year’s OnePlus 8 Pro. So if you are hoping for a OnePlus device with a fantastic wide-range zoom (or two zoom cameras), you might not want to hold your breath.

There’s no word on the other cameras yet, but we suspect the OnePlus 10 Pro will feature ultra-high-definition main and ultra-wide cameras if it actually follows in the footsteps of previous models. And the company will no doubt stick to the Hasselblad branding for the new series, with that partnership only beginning this year.
