S20 Ultra camera2 api access for tele camera

Hi

I was fiddling with the new Samsung S20 Ultra cameras from the application side and I found the camera manager does not report the tele camera, there are only 5 cameras listed by ids:

  • "0" - main back
  • "1" - front
  • "2" - wide back
  • "3" - front
  • "4" - depth

But if I try to access the camera with id "5" this is the error message

 CAMERA_DISCONNECTED (2): getCameraCharacteristics:751: No camera device with ID "5" currently available

which implies there is a camera there but the manager does not let me access it. 

 

Have anyone else got this error message, is the API closed in regards with the tele camera?

 

Thanks in advance.

wouldn't the Tele_Cam only be initiated during a video call?? and would-be it just utilize the fronts? just a thought
