[* 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 up to 50x zoom possible.
[* icon_note] Instead of acceptingresorting to a [https://www.amazon.com/Cell-Phone-Camera-Lens-Photography/dp/B07L86SX4L/|massive [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°90°, laying flat into the phone with a prism refracting the light into the lens.
[* red] But wait, it seems that for zooming between 1x up to 5x this module is not needed at all. Apparently only for zooming >5x this module comesused between 1x-5x zoom, coming into playplay beyond 5x zoom only.
[* black] In total theThe P30 Pro has five cameras in total (top to bottom): A 20 MP ultra wide angle, a 40 MP wide angle with the Time-of-Flight camera next to it, the 8 MP telephototelephoto, and of course the front facing camera with an impressive 32 MB32 MP.

[* icon_note] Interestingly the 40 MP camera sensor switched from an RGGB (Red/Green/Green/Blue) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayer_filter|bayer filter|new_window=true] to a RYYB (Red/Yellow/Yellow/Blue) pattern. This pattern is said to increase light sensitivity and could help with contrast since they ditched the monochrome sensor from [guide|104605|yesteryears P20 Pro|stepid=201984|new_window=true].
