2016’s iPhone 7 series marked a major step forward for zoom when it debuted a 2x telephoto camera, with the Android world following suit and even upping the ante with 3x telephoto shooters. We then saw a massive leap forward in 2019, as Huawei and Oppo debuted 5x and 6x periscope cameras.
Samsung’s recent Ultra smartphones upped the ante even further, bringing 10x periscope zoom cameras to the table. And this is certainly something I’d like to see on devices from other manufacturers.
