Nope. They are currently developing bendable zoom.

Zoom is nice, but, the quality of the image, will still be hampered by the SIZE of the image SENSOR. Simply sticking more and more megapixels on a sensor, the size of the ones in traditional smart phones, will NOT increase the quality of the device, if in less than ideal lighting conditions. The sensor size needs to somehow increase, along with optical zooming, before you will see a substantial increase, in the quality of the smartphone camera.

I don't quite understand how that works...
