Nokia set to introduce ZEISS optics to smartphone line
The latest agreement builds upon a long-standing relationship shared by the two firms.
Aiming to further enhance the imaging capabilities of its Nokia smartphone line, HMD Global and ZEISS have joined forces in a new partnership that will not only integrate ZEISS' optics into the company's latest smartphone releases, but also advance imaging standards across the industry.
Building upon a previous and long-standing relationship shared by the two companies, the joint partnership will focus on advancing the total imaging experience of smartphones. This will cover everything from the development of associated software, to optic design, as well as devising improvements to screen quality.
Arto Nummela, CEO, HMD Global, commented: "Collaborating with ZEISS is an important part of our commitment to always deliver the very best experience for our customers. Our fans want more than a great smartphone camera, they want a complete imaging experience that doesn't just set the standard but redefines it. Our fans expect it and, together with ZEISS, we're delivering it - co-developed imaging excellence for all."
With a relationship that dates back for over 10 years, Nokia has utilised ZEISS technologies across a number of its offerings, which include the Nokia Nseries and Nokia PureView technologies. The Nokia N90, unveiled back in 2005, was the first Nokia phone to feature a Carl ZEISS lens.
Dr. Matthias Metz, member of the Executive Board of ZEISS Group, said: "The collaboration of HMD Global with ZEISS for Nokia smartphones will again enhance consumers' holistic imaging experience based on excellence and innovation."
