August 17, 2017 ZEISS LENSPIRE Team

First new generation Nokia smartphone to feature ZEISS optics

Beginning of the summer HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, and ZEISS jointly announced the signing of an exclusive partnership. The goal of the partnership is to set new imaging standards within the smartphone industry. This long-term agreement builds on the shared history and expertise between ZEISS and Nokia smartphones.

With a joint ambition to advance the quality of the total imaging experience on smartphones spanning the entire ecosystem from software, services, through to screen quality, and optic design, the partnership will see ZEISS and HMD Global co-develop standard-defining imaging capabilities and will bring the ZEISS brand back to Nokia smartphones. This pledge to constantly improve consumers’ imaging experience is a reflection of the shared values between both businesses – a single minded commitment to quality, true craftsmanship and a desire to improve real life experience.


Nokia 8 – Three firsts in one precision designed flagship

The Nokia 8 has been designed from the ground up with the consumer in mind to deliver unique content capture capabilities, meaning it is as meticulously designed on the inside as it is on the outside. To keep your phone working harder for longer, the design, innovation and engineering teams worked hand-in-hand to deliver. The result is a full-length graphite shielded copper cooling pipe that dissipates the heat generated by the high performing system across the full length and breadth of the handset.
