add huawei p30 pro-periscope lens next year in Pixel 5

I guess, I also would have preferred a periscope camera. But then the image quality is worse at 55mm, so one needs to have 55mm as well as 125mm.

My wife has an old Nikon CoolPix S50 P&S

that has a 3X periscope lens that is optically zoomable. If there is a smartphone periscope lens then why can't it be zoomable like the S50 is? (The whole point of that Nikon camera was to make a shirt pocket camera with purely internal optical zoom.)

There is a smartphone with a periscope zoom camera. It's the Asus Zenfone Zoom, released in ≈2015. https://www.asus.com/Phone/ZenFone-Zoom-ZX551ML/PixelMaster/

The lens had very small aperture diameters, so it is worse than smartphone tele prime lens cameras.
