When the Nokia 8 was introduced, many had expected it to be a serious photography contender. It had dual 13MP f/2.0 cameras at the rear with ZEISS optics which shoots in both colour and monochrome.
The Nokia flagship had just completed its evaluation at DxoMark and its scores were pretty disappointing. It’s so low that it is even ranked 5 points lower than the iPhone 6 that has a single 8MP f/2.2 camera.
As the Nokia brand is revived once more, the current Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 are basically entry-level device clad with upmarket materials. To return back to its glory days, Nokia is reconnecting with long time partner ZEISS to raise the standard for imaging.
The first product from this collaboration can be seen in their upcoming flagship that’s expected to be called the Nokia 8.
Well, the German optical systems manufacturer is coming back to Nokia phones as they’ve just signed an exclusive partnership with HMD Global to “set new imaging standards within the smartphone industry”.
