HMD Global, the Finnish company responsible for making Nokia phones, has announced a partnership with imaging experts Zeiss. As a result, HMD Global and Zeiss will together enhance camera experience in the future Nokia phones. Unfortunately, none of the companies has revealed when exactly we can expect the next Nokia phone featuring Zeiss optics. As part of the collaboration, Zeiss will be responsible for all things camera on future Nokia phones such as lenses, software, and technology required to make enhanced photography experience possible. However, it is not the first time Nokia and Zeiss have come together.
HMD Global CEO Arto Nummela said in a statement: “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.”
Zeiss Group’s Dr. Matthias Metz said: “The collaboration of HMD Global with ZEISS for Nokia smartphones will again enhance consumers’ holistic imaging experience based on excellence and innovation. Our partnership is built on a solid foundation. Together, we look forward to an exciting journey into the future of sophisticated smartphone imaging.”

Earlier, Nokia and Zeiss teamed up for N series, which was later succeeded by Lumia lineup. The Lumia series witnessed the rise of Nokia PureView to develop big, lossless image sensors. It is certain that this collaboration is of paramount importance for both HMD Global and Zeiss Group. Currently, HMD Global has Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 smartphones in the company’s existing lineup. It is likely of HMD Global to offer dual cameras on the upcoming flagship, possibly the Nokia 9. Although the upcoming smartphone itself may not opt for Zeiss technology, the company must be planning to emerge as the leader in camera space sometime in the future.
