This has been termed as the SuperZoom lens by Huawei and it's capable of high-fidelity magnification up to 5 times optical zoom, 10 times hybrid zoom, and 50 times digital zoom.

At an event in Paris earlier today, Huawei released its new flagship, the P30 Pro.

With a 6.47-inch FullHD+ OLED display, the P30 Pro has a whopping 8GB of RAM with the option of a 512 GB storage.

Ahead of the launch, well-known smartphone leaker Evan Blass revealed tweets that stated that the device has a 40MP main camera with Huawei SuperSpectrum Sensor, a periscope telephoto lens, Leica Ultra Wide Angle Lens and something called the Huawei TOF camera. I'm not saying that the 50x zoom would give you the best quality shots in the world as opposed to actually being able to stand in front of the subject you want to photograph but it is a huge step further in the right direction for mobile camera zoom technology.

In addition to the P30 Pro, Huawei also introduced its new P30 smartphone, an update to last year's P20. The 8GB RAM/ 256GB storage variant of the Huawei P30 Pro comes at Euro 1099 (roughly Rs. 85,600) and Euro 1,249 (roughly Rs. 97,300) for the 8GB RAM/ 512GB storage option. Huawei P30 Pro is said to come with a 6.47-inch OLED Full HD+ curved display and a notch on the top, while the P30 gets a slightly smaller flat screen. Backed by a 4,200mAh battery, the P30 Pro offers reverse wireless charging, just like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Instead of a quad-camera array, the P30 loses the ToF camera, and settles for a triple camera setup instead.

Moreover, the product can also deliver a 10-times hybrid zoom Huawei claims harnesses every single one of the phone's four sensors. This year also sees the introduction of a "dewdrop" notch - this sits in the middle of the top of the screen and is created to use as little as possible of the screen space.
