Whackcar, 22 Nov 2021OnePlus is always late to offer premium features. They were... moreBut didn't they brought 90 and 120hz before others ? also while not first (i think) they also bought the pop up front camera giving not notch at all .

TBH I don't care about not having a periscope zoom camera, what I care is that they probably will still asking top premium money for the lack of that. They basically go to similar prices of top Apple or Samsung without all the premium features, support and updates.

Do you guys remember?when one plus used to be flagship killer,low price than flagships but all rounder.Now it's dead

Oppo pioneered the periscope zoom lens. It seems very odd for them to not include it in any of their phones.

OnePlus is now OneMinus

His posts on weibo

" Next, there are only a handful of periscope cameras in the European and Canadian series. For example, the current engineering software interface of the OnePlus 10 Pro is 3.3x optical variable/30x digital zoom, and it is equipped with an ordinary telephoto lens. The new Find machine and GT2 series new machine I have seen are not available either."

" Remember the lens design of Reno7 Pro, the new flagship of the Find iteration is also similar in design, 50mp dual main camera and a normal telephoto."

That's three years in a row that OnePlus skipped periscope lens.
They provide some great 8k footage with main and ultrawide camera along with 4k120 but the lack of periscope zoom is the only missing thing stopping the camera setup from being complete.

Find X4 Pro does not have as well.
So, OP10 Pro would never be allowed to use.

Fanboy of All brands, 22 Nov 2021I don't mind no periscope. But image and video quality... moreThird cam of OP9 is just for depth info and some casual B/W photo.
Pointless to have video, when it could only allow HD.

Everyone has different preferences. No periscope with big quality zoom? No buy for me. So i guess it'll be the S22 Ultra then...

I get they do it to keep costs down, but don't call it "Pro" if it doesn't have all the expected Pro features

I don't mind no periscope. But image and video quality from selfie, ultrawide, main, telephoto, portrait, night should be excellent and no flaws. Oneplus 9 have terrible selfie cam photos and videos, bad tele cam, and tele cam cannot record video. Also, portraits are soft and bad at night. I mean, Iphone 13 Pro Max don't have tele lens yet is is an excellent setup. If no periscope, then image quality from selfie to all rear cam must be excellent

OnePlus is always late to offer premium features. They were late to bring IP certification & wireless charging to their phones among other things. Now same with the periscope sensor.

As long as the quality is good on the others and the 3.3x, I don't really care.

  • ok

i hope that the lack of periscope camera might lower the phone price, or other cameras will be improved
