High-end Smartphones in 2020 May Feature 10x Optical Zoom

5G components are projected to raise the production cost of the new iPhones by anywhere from $30 to $100

Noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed that 10x optical zoom might be a key upgrade to high-end smartphones next year.

In a research note, Kuo said the P40 Pro will have a redesigned periscope telephoto lens featured on its rear camera setup. The device is expected to make its debut in the market during the first half of 2020.

The analyst aslo added that enhanced optical zoom will extend to more high-end smartphones next year, although he did not specify if that will include the iPhone, which currently maxes out at 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom, MacRumors reported recently.

However, Oppo had promised a smartphone with 10x optical zoom earlier this year, but only released one with 10x hybrid zoom, which relies on a combination of optical zoom and software.
