When do you think will smartphones offer a 200mm (35mm equivalent) Lense?

Re: P40 will have 2x periscope, 10x optical zoom with

Just the 2x zoom on my Xiaomi Mi9 seems a bit of a gimmick. The standard lens sits over a 48MP sensor, the 2x lens has a 12 MP sensor. All pixels being equal, I could just as well crop the main lens to get a 2x 12MP zoom. And the pixels do seem equal, from the shots I've taken the 2x zoom lens isn't as good as the main one.
