Huawei is the first smartphone manufacturer to use the periscope telephoto lens to enable an unprecedented optical zoom and it’s expected that this lens will be equipped in more Huawei smartphones next year, says an analyst.
According to information coming from Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at TF International Security coming Huawei mobile phones equipped with periscope telephoto lenses will surge in 2020.
The upcoming Huawei P40 Pro will use a newly designed 8MP periscope telephoto lens with F 4.0 aperture, making the P40 Pro Huawei’s first smartphone to come with 10X optical zoom.
The new periscope lens includes both prism and mirror structure as a key upgrade in the optical zoom specifications. In comparison, the P30 Pro only comes only with a prism lens but the P40 Pro periscope lens has adopted 2 mirrors and an extended field of view to achieve 10X optical zoom.
It’s predicted that Huawei will also use the 5X optical periscope lens in other smartphones including Huawei P40, high-end Nova phones, high-end Honor phones, high-end Mate phones.
The shipment record reveals that Huawei, the first shipment of 10X periscope zoom lens targeted at around 9 million units and 5X periscope zoom around 28 million units. A total count of periscope lens reaches 37 million in 2020 compared to 9 million in 2019.

Huawei Mate 50 Pro+ might get cancelled: Tipster
It was reported that Huawei is preparing to launch three versions of the upcoming Mate 50 series but it seems like the company has made some changes to the plan. As the fresh inputs hint, the Huawei Mate 50 Pro+ version is likely to get cancelled among all of the launching models.
A well-known Weibo tipster has hinted that Huawei has recently made some changes in the Huawei Mate 50 series launch strategy, and it’s revealed that the company might get the Pro+ version cancelled. If we look into our previous graph, we could come to this understanding of four models – three standard and one special edition.
- Huawei Mate 50
- Huawei Mate 50 Pro
- Huawei Mate 50 Pro+
- Huawei Mate 50 RS Porsche Design
However, with the removal of the Pro+ model, we will only find the Mate 50 and Mate 50 Pro in the realm of consumers along with the possible happening of the Porsche Design variant. A similar scenario has also happened with the Huawei P50 series, which came in standard and Pro models, while the P40 series had three variants.
More on this matter, the tipster suggests that all of the Huawei Mate 50 series models will equip 4G network access and can access 5G via external cases. That was launched previously for the Huawei P50 Pro devices. However, it could directly reflect that Huawei is keen to heavily utilize the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets for this upcoming flagship lineup. Moving on, the camera design has been changed a bit as compared to the last generation but only slightly.
The latest changes may have been related to the supply chain issues and the Chines tech maker is working to resolve them on time to get the device to the launch stage.
As for now, Huawei has not confirmed the launch date for the Huawei Mate 50 series but we could assume that this flagship could unveil in August this year.
