Vivo patents a periscope zoom camera for its upcoming smartphone null

Vivo has had a pretty active year thus far. Close on the heels of launching its flagship Vivo X50 and the critically appreciated Vivo X50 Pro, the company launched  Vivo Y20 and its twin the Y20i to the Indian market in the budget category. While the Vivo X50 series had our reviewers gushing about its photo quality, the company may have just gone ahead with a ploy to better it. 

Just as we were getting ready to welcome the iQoo5 series from Vivo’s sub-brand, we are getting early reports that the company has received a patent for a smartphone equipped with a periscope zoom lens. Of course, Vivo had used similar lenses in its flagships such as the Vivo X30 Pro and the Vivo X50 Pro and Pro Plus.
