 HMD Global recently announced its partnership with Carl Zeiss, the company known for making high-end optics. This partnership has dropped hints that the upcoming Nokia 8 could come with Carl Zeiss optics. Nokia’s last phones to come with Zeiss lens were Lumia 1020 and Nokia 808 PureView. However, Nokia 8 would be the first Nokia’s Android phone to come with Zeiss optics as the Lumia 1020 was a Windows-based phone and 808 PureView was a Symbian phone.
