HMD Global to Use Zeiss Optics On Future Nokia Phones
HMD Global today announced a new partnership that will see Zeiss return to Nokia-branded handsets. HMD Global is the world's exclusive licensee of the Nokia brand. Earlier this year HMD Global released a trio of Android-based handsets. This rekindled relationship with Zeiss will see the two companies work together to improve HMD Global's imaging capabilities with Zeiss-branded optics on Nokia phones. HMD Global didn't say when it might bring Zeiss-equipped phones to market.
The Nokia 8 is the first flagship phone from the "new Nokia". What separates it from the rest of Nokia's current lineup is the dual-camera system with Zeiss lenses.
