OnePlus 7 Pro 3x Optical Zoom: Journalists and techno-bloggers have been testing the new OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone for several weeks now. The novelty has received many positive reviews, but it has not done without jambs.
What is known?
The manufacturer at the presentation of the device reported that the telephoto lens OnePlus 7 Pro supports 3x optical zoom, but as it turned out, this is not true.
The journalist of the American edition of Android Police found out that one of the additional cameras of the smartphone actually has optical approximation at 2.2x, the remaining 0.8x are done programmatically using the SmartCapture technology.
In fact, this is the same as the usual digital zoom. OnePlus has already confirmed this information and assured that such a decision does not affect the quality of the images.

At one time, exactly the same situation was with the OnePlus 5 smartphone. He, instead of the stated 2-fold optical zoom, had an optical approximation of only 1.6x.
