HMD Global, the company that manufactures Nokia devices is currently in limelight for all the right reasons. It has been reported that Nokia is now all set to re-collaborate with Carl Zeiss, the company known to be one of the best as far as optics’ technology is concerned.
Nokia has worked with Carl Zeiss in the past and their outcome was one of the best camera phones at the time. Among some of their products included the Nokia Pureview 808 and the Lumia 1020. The Pureview was way ahead of its competitors as it sported a 41MP camera module that snapped absolutely aesthetic images. Sadly, the phone lacked the raw processing power and software to help the camera module reach its full potential
The Lumia 1020 was Nokia’s second attempt to implement the 41MP mammoth of a camera sensor. Unfortunately, it failed to impress yet again as this time it was combined with Microsoft’s limited capability interface. This time around it wasn’t the camera or the processing that was at fault, but instead, the fuss that Android was creating that overshadowed the sheer power of this device.
Fast forwarding to 2017, Nokia is all set to check all the right boxes. In the era where a large chunk of people use their mobile phones as a primary image capturing device, thanks to the introduction of selfies and live streaming over 4G, something like a 41MP camera should be just ideal. The Nokia 9 is expected to sport one of the best sensors Zeiss will have to offer and we’re genuinely excited on its megapixel count. As Nokia is finally jumping the Android bandwagon, this is the perfect time for Nokia and Zeiss’ partnership.
The Nokia 9 is expected to come in direct competition with smartphones like the iPhone and the Galaxy S8 that feature dual camera setups. A large megapixel count camera module can give them a run for their money for something like a lossless zoom technology.
We’re excited for the Nokia 9. What are your thoughts and expectations? We’d love to know your views in the comments section below 🙂
