How to use a Smartphone to film 50mm videos?

Hi, I'm trying to get my head around how to film 50mm video on a smartphone.  I'm in the market for a new phone but they mainly have Wide (26mm) and Tele (65mm+)

Basically I do a lot of self tape auditions so want to stop lugging my DSLR around and start using a smartphone, and I want the video to have a 50mm focal length look.

1) Am I right in assuming that apps can set 50mm but that would just mean the 26mm camera is cropped and I won't even get the 50mm focal length look?

2) So to overcome this would I have to use the telephoto lens and set the phone much further away filming at 65mm or 77mm on the iphone?

3) What is the best solution for what I want to achieve?

Thanks in advance
