The certification page shows, the company uses the main lens along with one periscope lens. So the camera setup includes the main lens + one periscope auxiliary lens. Placing one periscope lens perpendicular to the main lens light axis might help to achieve multiple zoom magnifications without increasing the thickness of the main lens.

The Oppo Reno 10x zoom versions comes with 10x hybrid zoom along with 60x digital zoom and the Huawei P30 Pro supports 50x digital zoom. Xiaomi may have some plans to use these new periscope lens on its Mi Mix series or on another device. Nothing has been confirmed officially and we still don’t know which Xiaomi mobile will feature this first!
