[* black] Lets focus on the interesting parts and take out the cameras. First one out is the new [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Periscope|periscope style|new_window=true] camera module that is said to make zooming up to 50x zoom possible.
[* icon_note] Instead of accepting a [https://www.amazon.com/Cell-Phone-Camera-Lens-Photography/dp/B07L86SX4L/|massive camera bump|new_window=true] for this module, the array is rotated 90° flat into the phone with a prism reflectingrefracting the light into the lens.

[* red] But wait, seems that for zooming between 1x up to 5x this module is not needed at all. Apparently only for zooming >5x this module comes into play.
[* black] In total the P30 Pro has five cameras (top to bottom):
[* black]
A 20 MP ultra wide angle (ƒ/2.2)angle, a 40 MP wide angle (ƒ/1.6 with OIS) with the Time-of-Flight camera next to it, the 8 MP telephoto (ƒ/3.4) and of course the front facing camera with 32 MB (ƒ/2.0)32 MB.
[* icon_note] Interestingly the 40 MP camera sensor switched from an RGB (Red/Green/Blue) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayer_filter|bayer filter|new_window=true] to a RYB (Red/Yellow/Blue) pattern. This pattern is said to increase light sensitivity and therefore the contrast since they ditched the monochrome sensor from the P20 Pro
